Science Buddies

by: Susan Ade Potenza

The Science Buddies program pairs a seventh-grade life science class with a second-or third-grade class in a yearlong partnership of science adventures. Over the course of the year these dual-grade learning groups work together on various science explorations—gardening, weather observation, and others—to explore concepts and practice science-process skills such as predicting, gathering, and analyzing data. The program has run for two years at our school and has been truly successful with both students and teachers.
