The first topic in the Upper Unit’s Science curriculum this year is Astronomy. Students spent the first week of this unit investigating the biggest scientific object around: the Universe! During the second week of our Astronomy unit, we examined the smallest objects—subatomic particles, such as quarks—by using plushies, readings, and discussions to help students imagine and grapple with such grand ideas.
