K: I do not teach kinder, but there are other resources on this page which can help.

Online Science Lessons K-6

Note for parents

Please use your best judgement as parents to make reasonable decisions for your child.

I hope these resources help your child continue to learn and be ready for school when things return to "normal". We do many additional activities in class which we are not able to do online. The online learning experience is different than being in school. We will all have to do our best. Ideally, you should help your child with these activities, but don't feel guilty if you can't.

I believe we all share the goal of happy, healthy, and well rounded children. -- Ms. Johnson

1-6th grade work in google classrooms

Assigned student work is in your science google classroom. To get there, first be sure your browser is logged into your @fusdk12.net account (check the round picture in the top right corner of chrome) then log into Clever, or Google Classrooms.

You MUST be logged into your  @fusdk12.net account.

Problems? Try the videos and other instructions at the bottom far left of this web page, or e-mail your science teacher or classroom teacher.

Is the work assigned in Google Classrooms required?  No.... but.... If your child does no "school type work" they will have a hard time when school resumes; however there are alternate ways to learn. We are providing a number of science activities in the google classroom. We will do our best to be flexible and realize that this situation is different for everyone. If you can't use Google Classroom, or your child can't do all or some of the work, please e-mail your science teacher and contact your child's classroom teacher so we can find a solution. At a minimum please have your child read and do math regularly, encourage them to think and learn about topics that interest them.

How will my child's work be graded? Assignments will be graded on a "done / not done" basis. Science teachers are reviewing all the work that is turned in, and will often comment (privately) on students work to let you know how you are doing. In accordance with district policy, at the end of the year all 1-6th students will receive a grade of "/".

Kindergarten -  Kindergarten students don't normally see the science prep teachers. However; there is some material specifically for Kinder as well as many other activities here than can be adapted for Kinder.
