Welcome to Ms. Loukaidou’s science class!
Queen of All Saint’s 5th-8th science classes incorporate next generation science standards and student-centered learning through which students develop knowledge and understanding of scientific ideas and scientific inquiry. The science program integrates life science, physical science, and earth science. Students learn about the natural world through exploration and experimentation. They make predictions, ask questions, observe and collect information, draw conclusions and communicate their results orally and in writing. We also strive to make real the connections between the sciences and God’s natural order.

Every-day Reading & Journaling: Students are receiving a book every week, which they are expected to read within that week and write about the section they read in their journal daily. Every Thursday they should bring their journals and books to class for review. More information about the program can be found Here!
5th grade is covering “General Science” throughout the academic year. Amongst other topics of interest, students will become familiar with the nature of science, earth science, food and nutrition, and explore ecosystems, engineering, and technology. Students’ goals include learning how to incorporate critical thinking during class and to work as a team.
