7th and 8th Grade Science
Teaching science through inquiry allows students to conceptualize a question and then seek possible explanations that respond to that question. Inquiry is in part a state of mind---that of inquisitiveness. Children are naturally curious. They care enough to ask "why" and "how" questions. The goal is to keep inquiry at the center of the learning process, providing students with stimulating experiences in the life, earth, and physical sciences and in technology while simultaneously developing their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
“The Ho-Ho-Kus Public School is committed to a high standard of academic excellence in compliance with the|
core curriculum content standards in a safe and nurturing environment that will allow students to maximize their
potential and prepare them to be responsible, contributing members of a diverse society.”
