Welcome to the Elementary Science Website. My name is Noel Rosa-Skaggs and this is my fourteenth year as the Elementary Science Teacher at Southampton Elementary School.
Our lessons in science are tremendously fun and hands-on. This is important because at Southampton Elementary School we believe students learn best by figuring things out for themselves with their own hands. An old adage states: "Tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand." The last part of this statement is the essence of inquiry-based learning and the foundation for our elementary science program.
Aside from what we do in class your child will tell you the best part of our Science Lab is the Science Animals! Our resident creatures include: Oreo, the California King Snake; Sandy, our Crested Gecko; Spiro and Peaches, our Leopard Geckos; and Moustache our Striped Damselfish.
Please come visit our lab in room 321.
