Vertical Module Themes

The module themes are land, space, and ocean. The spanning nature of each theme makes it easier to meet the developmental needs of the grade level while maintaining continuity in a PK-8 system. Each theme will create a context for exploring a variety of interrelated disciplines under the lens of neuroscience. As we virtually travel through the brain, each component will function as a departure point for understanding different environments and the organisms that live in them. Having a consistent theme PK-8 will allow for significant mentorship opportunities between grade levels and will lend itself to vertical teacher collaboration especially at key transitional years like 3rd, 5th and 8th grades. Essentially, each theme will function as a driving mechanism for connecting the entire school around a central learning topic.
