Science K

Children studying plants

Includes: Science K Tool Kit, Teacher’s manual, Student materials, Classroom materials

Science K focuses on the children and their interaction with the world around them. We introduce all three main science areas of life, physical, and earth and space with more emphasis on life and physical science. Strong emphasis is placed on topics that pertain to the early learner and what is important to them: the parts of the body, five senses, healthy habits, pets, characteristics of objects, how objects move, plants, living and non-living things, weather and seasons.

Included in a science kit are the Tool Kit, teacher’s manual, student materials, resource books, photo cards, slideshows, Teacher Resource CD, and Fitness Fun™  CD, as well as access to our website resources. To learn more about these components, read below.
