The course focuses on World Geography, describing the surface of the Earth and its natural features (biomes). It also teaches about cultural distinctive, placing special emphasis on North American geography and culture. Then, expanding on instruction, it presents a survey of Earth and space explorations. These areas of focus target three major content strands: Geography, History, and Social Studies Skills. Upon completion of the course, students should be able to: • identify significant explorers, such as Prince Henry, Christopher Columbus, and Ferdinand Magellan, noting their accomplishments • locate and describe different regions of the world, such as climatic and topographical regions • understand the world in spatial terms (according to hemispheres and maps) • locate and describe U.S. regions made up of various groups of states, such as New England and the plains states • identify cultural and geographic differences between various biomes and countries that are covered in the course
Language Arts 400

It most specifically focuses on deepening and furthering students’ understanding in the following ways: • Reading–introduces students to basic reading skills, including the identification of main ideas, supporting details, sequence, and facts and opinions; shows students how to identify parts of speech in sentences; develops students capacity for identifying basic elements of narrative prose; introduces students to types of nonfiction, including biographies, autobiographies, and short essays; helps students develop basic literacy comprehension skills through the reading of short stories, nonfiction pieces, and poetry. • Writing–develops student’s understanding of sentence structure, providing hands-on experience with subject-verb agreement and parts of speech; emphasizes parts of speech and their roles, including adjectives, nouns, and verbs; familiarizes students with roots and affixes, and basic word relationships, including homonyms, synonyms, and antonyms; develops students’ vocabulary and spelling skills; gives students the opportunity to develop their abilities in writing paragraphs, four-line poetry, and short stories; guides students through planning, organizing, writing, and revising a report. • Listening–teaches effective listening comprehension skills, weaving these throughout the lessons. • Special Topics–teaches basic research skills, including dictionary, encyclopedia, and safe Internet usage.
Science 400 is a basic elementary course intended to expose students to the designs and patterns in the physical universe. This course builds on concepts taught in Science 300, providing a broad survey of the major areas of science. Some of the areas covered in Science 400 include the study of plants and animals, ecology, work, and simple machines, electricity and magnetism, properties of water and matter, weather, solar system, and the different spheres of earth. The course seeks to develop the student’s ability to understand and participate in scientific inquiry. The units contain experiments and projects to capitalize on children’s natural curiosity. The student will explore, observe, and manipulate everyday objects and materials in their environment. Collectively, this should help students develop and build on their subject-matter knowledge base. Upon completion of the course, students should be able to do the following: • Use their main senses for observation of the world around them. • Describe different uses for plants. • Discuss the differences among the ways that different animals act. • Understand how people are responsible for preserving and conserving nature. • Explain the different types of simple machines. • Describe an electrical current and how it relates to magnetism. • Demonstrate an understanding of the different properties of water. • Observe weather and how it affects people. • Describe our solar system. • Discuss the three different spheres of the earth and how they interact. • Explain the changes in seasons and time.
