Ninth grade science is a challenging and dynamic year designed to prepare students for new learning adventures in tenth grade! Topics explored will deepen student knowledge of physics, chemistry, biology and earth and space science. Opportunities to fully employ the scientific method are found throughout each kit.
Students will also be challenged to complete inquiry-based learning, conduct research, design their own experiments and projects, and present their learning to others. Each kit is designed to integrate the Modernized BC Curriculum Core Competencies: Communication, Creative and Critical Thinking, and Personal and Social Skills/Knowledge.
Topics explored in our ninth grade science kits include Chemistry, Electricity, Matter and Energy Cycles, and Cells and Cellular Reproduction. Each kit also integrates concepts in mathematics, literacy, technology, and design thinking! Kits can be completed in any order based on student interest and availability of materials.
Science kits are designed to be completed over a period of 6-8 weeks depending on the number of activities selected. Each ninth grade science kit is divided into sections based on driving questions. You will have the opportunity to work through each kit section by choosing your own materials, projects and activities to create a unique learning experience with your child.
We have worked diligently to choose an array of exciting learning opportunities for every learner! The materials, projects, and activities contained in the kit have been carefully selected to address the big ideas, competencies, and content of BC’s Modernized Curriculum.
