What are elementary school children in Ontario learning about science and technology?

Below we have compiled summaries of the science and technology curriculum in grades 1-6.

There are four strands covered in each grade level:

  • Understanding Life Systems
  • Understanding Structures and Mechanisms
  • Understanding Matter and Energy
  • Understanding Earth and Space Systems

In each strand we’ll take a look at the big ideas being explored, the overall expectations of your child by year end, and specific examples of what your kid will learn.
