Science4Us allows busy teachers to deliver an exemplary science educational experience to their kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade students. The mission of Science4Us is to provide a solid foundation of fundamental science concepts for students, on which a deep understanding and interest in science can be built.
Science4Us realizes that teachers are an integral part of our mission. Without the proper resources and support, teachers can struggle to provide a solid science foundation. The Science4Us curriculum includes embedded on-demand pedagogical and content training for teachers that does not require a large time commitment. Science4Us provides all of the support that teachers need to confidently and effectively lead exemplary science lessons, providing the science foundation that their students need. Science4Us does not require extensive preparation or training for the teachers.
The Science4Us curriculum is a complete, standards-based, core science curriculum that delivers digital and real-world science experiences using the 5E's to kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade students. The efficacy of Science4Us (completed by McRel) has been established that it provides a positive effect on students’ conceptual and procedural knowledge as well as their motivation to learn in science topics.
Consistent with best practices and as prescribed by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) and Common Core State Standards (CCSS), Science4Us has a cross-curricular approach which uses broad cross cutting ideas as well as digital explorations and virtual investigations. Science4Us provides foundational science knowledge in a way that truly engages the learner and will lead more students to reach for the STEM-related jobs and industries of the future.
