Syllabus
SCIENCE - Broad Rock Middle School utilizes three inquiry based GEMS-NET units as well as teacher-created units of study.  The mission of GEMS-NET is to prepare all students to be scientifically literate, enabling them to meet the challenges of an expanding body of knowledge within an increasingly technologically complex and changing global society.

Ecosystems is a unit to help students understand the web of relationships that links organisms to one another and to their natural environment.  By constructing, observing, discussing, and reading about both land and water ecosystems in this unit, students can develop a growing sensitivity to living things and what they need to survive.  
 
Weather and Water is a new unit that we will be using this year during the second semester. Stay tuned for more upcoming information.
