  Science is computer based with our textbook series online!  The Discovery Education program is a program where the students will learn all Science standards during their four years in Bell Oaks!  Each year the concepts are expanded on and are taught at a deeper and higher level of thinking, increasing their understanding of the topics. The students will receive weekly assignments as well as a lesson quiz after each section.  Students will complete most work in their One Note online notebook, which is accessible from home.

Students will be using the online Discovery Education program.
