Kindergarten Science Curriculum

Curriculum Overview: 1st Grade 2nd Grade

Science is messy. We do not always know the answer when we start. We play. We explore. We poke around and stir things up. We try something not because we already know what will happen, but because we want to know what will happen.

Kindergarten Science Overview

In our kindergarten science curriculum, students will be introduced to science concepts that build upon the knowledge and experiences that children already have, which enables them to connect to new concepts and skills. These concepts are taught using age-appropriate interactive activities, songs, and characters with engaging lesson plans. In the Inquiry module, students investigate and experiment with tools. The Physical Science module shows students how to describe objects and sort them by their physical properties. In the Life Science module, students observe and investigate plants and animals.

What science teachers are saying…

I have been teaching kindergarten for six years. We use Science4Us on a weekly basis when we have science class.

The students love the activities that are presented on the website and get excited when it is their turn to log on. They seem to like the sorting games more than anything else.

If they are struggling in a particular area I can assign them the activities that go along with that area. The best part of Science4Us is that my students really love science now and look forward to class.
