Ready to homeschool First Grade science? My goal is to guide you step-by-step through the process of learning to use the free, high-quality science curriculum from Core Knowledge to homeschool your student.
What Will Your Student Learn in First Grade? Your student will learn about the wonders of living things and their environments, the human body, properties of matter, how electricity works, basic astronomy, and the the geographic features and composition of the earth. They will also be introduced to scientists such as Rachel Carson, Thomas Edison, Edward Jenner, and Louis Pasteur.
