Science
We use a variety of resources/tools to help our students master the Colorado Academic Standards in Science. Our K-6 students engage in hands-on investigations adapted from FOSS Science Kits, as well as a wide-range of other teacher-created 5E Inquiry Cycle lesson plans. Students also have opportunities to engage in Engineering and Design during both classroom and Tech Lab STEM challenges. Furthermore, at least one EL Literacy Module at each grade level has a science content focus, including accompanying hands-on labs, investigations, and/or in-depth case studies.

Social Studies: At SHE, we use a wide variety of resources/tools to help our students master the Colorado Academic Standards in Social Studies. Our K-6 students participate in a variety of teacher-developed lessons, as well as interactive lessons, field trips, and simulations generated through community partnerships, to bring geography, history, economics, and civics to life. Furthermore, several of the EL Literacy Modules emphasize content from various domains of social studies, allowing our students to immerse themselves in compelling thematic units of study over time.
