Science4Us is a standards-based, digitally-delivered science curriculum for kindergarten, first and second grade students. It’s flexible delivery methods allow students to use Science4Us in whole group, centers or even 1:1 with an iPad. Students love the 350 online, interactive activities that help them learn foundational science concepts. Teachers love that the resources contain multiple opportunities to enhance literacy and math skills. In addition to the online activities, there are over 1,000 offline activities that allow students and teachers to use manipulatives in hands-on investigations while other offline activities provide opportunities for writing words, sentences and even sometimes writing short paragraphs.
Science4Us uses the 5-E Model to deliver science concepts to kindergarten, first grade and second grade students. Therefore, students are able to begin a science lesson with an “Engage” activity that accesses prior knowledge, a perfect way to start a new science idea. After the Explore, Explain and Elaborates, students can be Evaluated to see what science objectives have been met. Teachers have access to reports which allow them to review students’ progress throughout the program. This way, teacher and administrators will be able to see how their students succeed with Science4Us.
