Hands-on inquiry based science in grades K-6 in the Fullerton School District impacts approximately 398 teachers and 10,654 students. Fullerton School District continues to strive to present a quality science program, reflecting a balanced, comprehensive approach based on standards that include the teaching of investigation and experimentation skills, along with direct instruction and reading.  The benefits of inquiry-based science instruction include: student engagement, the application to the real world, the promotion of teamwork and collaboration, the accommodation to different learning styles, and the ability to extend science to other curricular areas. Teachers in K-6 utilize district science kits to deliver hands-on inquiry-based science instruction.  This program effectively addresses the science content and the methods by which science is best taught. The numerous hands-on inquiry investigations are designed to engage the students while providing them with concrete examples of the grade level science content. Fullerton School District goals include sustaining materials refurbishment, expanding teacher training, incorporating a district-wide active science assessment program, and maintaining our exemplary community partnerships.
