Branches of Science: Life* Physical* Earth*


The branches of science-study are built upon the foundation of investigation. Melrose students apply the scientific method in gaining knowledge of physical, life, and earth sciences. Scientist students raise questions, observe, analyze, discuss, and share knowledge of their deepening scientific understandings. Beginning in kindergarten, our scientists maintain science notebooks as a structure for developing and capturing academic growth. Student achievement is also tracked through formal assessments.
