With state science testing usually beginning in the fourth or fifth grade, many schools choose to underemphasize science learning in the earliest grades. Oftentimes, schools go with a “one-size-fits-all” approach to science instruction by choosing a K-5 or K-12 science program.
The problem is, these programs aren’t effective for our youngest learners.
The research-backed program takes a multisensory approach to learning, and keeps lessons short and interactive. This means students stay engaged and teachers can easily jump between activities.
Active: Opportunities for collaboration and interaction with the material
Imaginative: Stories, poems, and puzzles to challenge and entertain
Multisensory: Read, listen, dance, and sing along to cement the core concepts
Simply expressed: Seemingly complex concepts are easy to teach
Inquiry-based: Appeals to students’ natural curiosity
Thanks to our interdisciplinary approach, Science4Us fits perfectly into any K-2 classroom. Math and literacy, a focus of these early grades, are integrated into every Science4Us module.
Science4Us modules are divided into sessions, meaning it’s simple to plan out science, math, and literacy lessons any time a teacher desires. With most lessons lasting from 10 to 30 minutes, they’re effective, easily digestible, and offer a wide variety of activities to keep young students interested.
Teachers also love the flexibility Science4Us provides in creating whole-group, small-group, and 1:1 lessons. With embedded professional development that covers topics from common misconceptions to best practices. teachers get the tools they need to mazimize their lessons.
