Science A/B Year Schedule for British Columbia’s New Curriculum K – 7
I recently tweeted out a screenshot of a Science A/B Year Schedule for the New B.C. Curriculum Kindergarten to Grade 7 created by my husband – Mike Woelders. I got a crazy amount of responses, so here is a blog post to spread this great resource!
So, do you need a Science A/B Year Schedule based on the new British Columbia Science curriculum for your school? My husband, Mike Woelders, has a degree in Chemistry, and has worked at the elementary school level for most of his teaching career, even though he trained in high school Sciences. His passion to teach Science and inspire kids to learn more about how Science relates to the real world.
He decided to create a Science A/B year schedule to help his staff at Gordon Greenwood Elementary School in Langley, B.C.! My school – Dorothy Peacock Elementary – will also be using this schedule in our school starting in September.
Many times when we teach split classes, juggling two grades of Science curriculum can be challenging at best. If you are interested in reaching out to him, then just send him an email through his email address at the bottom of the document and he can get in contact with you about questions and comments.
Here is some stuff you should know about this resource:
- You will see what the old B.C. curriculum states, and what the New B.C. Curriculum states.
- There is some overlap in the Grade 7 level.
- Grade 5’s in a Grade 5/6 split will overlap with a Grade 7 topic two years later. This happens in Year A with Earth and Solar System. To get around this, we emphasize Earth in Grade 5/6 and Solar Systems in Grade 7. This also happens in Year B with Electricity and Magnetism, but we emphasize in Static and Current Electricity in Grade 5/6, and Electromagnetism and Generating Electricity in Grade 7.
- Also, Force Effects, Newton’s Laws and Gravity were combined with Simple Machines because of it’s close relationship of these topics.
