"Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction.
The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically."
― Martin Luther King Jr.
Welcome to Mrs. Stecher's Homepage! 
At St. Brendan's we have built a cohesive Science program that has its foundations in the primary grades for success in the middle school program. Through each year, their depth of scientific knowledge increases and is used for analysis of scientific phenomena.  This analysis is put into practice by constructing arguments using evidence.  To increase the ability to communicate scientific ideas, we practice reading, writing, and math concepts to increase comprehension of these scientific concepts.
We do cover A LOT of material and complete different types of projects to practice the concepts. Please look over the course descriptions in my pages for any of the classes grades 3-5 and if there are any questions, please do no hesitate to contact me!


Summer '24:Rising 5th Graders-Science Summaries

Attached are the instructions for taking notes and writing a summary.  They have done this in class before so this should be a familiar process for them. The 2 summaries are due the first Science class period August 22nd.  Enjoy your summer! 
They can come from any SuperStem magazine.  I will have a pdf of a couple of Science articles here on my website if you are not with your magazines or lose them and want to get started. Happy Reading and Writing!
