Science & Technology

At Atlas Learning Zone, we understand that every student has their unique learning journey. That’s why we offer a range of learning resources designed to meet each student where they are. Our Learning Activities provide comprehensive guided instruction, while our Resources for Learning, Apply the Learning prompts, and Vocabulary lists work well to reinforce specific skills or to enable independent exploration of a subject.

Overall Curriculum Expectations

Science is an essential way of knowing that seeks to describe and explain the natural and physical world around us. At Atlas Learning Zone, we recognize the importance of making connections between scientific concepts and real-world applications.

Our science curriculum is designed to develop important scientific literacy and technological skills that will enable students to become active problem solvers in their communities and thrive in today’s rapidly changing world.

The science and technology curriculum is organized into five strands:

  • STEM Skills and Connections
  • Life Systems: Growth and Changes in Animals
  • Matter and Energy: Properties of Liquids and Solids
  • Structures and Mechanisms: Simple Machines and Movement
  • Earth and Space Systems: Air and Water in the Environment
