We Are Scientists: Kindergarten and First Grade Science Class

Welcome to We Are Scientists! This is level 1 in my elementary science series and covers topics taught in kindergarten and first grade science. This is a live class taught on Outschool. Click the button below for the current schedule!

This class will have a new topic each week where we will explore science topics geared to kindergarten and first grade. We will learn and apply the scientific method to our topic of the week and conduct an experiment or investigation. Each week I will post a printable handout that students can use during class as we make observations, formulate a hypothesis, conduct an experiment or investigation, and draw a conclusion. On weeks that we have an experiment, I will demonstrate the experiment in class and post directions on how students (with parent supervision!) can complete the experiment at home, outside of class. It is not a problem if students do not have the handouts for class. They are always welcome to listen and participate by sharing ideas and answering questions.


My favorite part of teaching is building relationships! I strive to create a positive, relaxed environment where we can learn and have fun. I do not require students to mute, but I will mute students if there is distracting background noise.


It is helpful for students to know how to mute/unmute themselves. I encourage students to ask questions and participate!


I offer a first and second grade science class as well if your child is at older end of the age range or is ready to go a little more indepth in our topics:
