Product Description
FirstieScience Curriculum

FirstieScience Curriculum is an engaging science curriculum with young learners in mind! FirstieScience is standards-based and encourages young learners to think “outside the box” and prove their thinking through hands-on and engaging learning experiences.

What Units Are Included in FirstieScience

FirstieScience is based upon five units; Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, Space and Simple Machines, and Five Senses. Each is broken down to 5-7 lessons and each lesson can take from 1-2 days to complete. Each unit covers at least two weeks of instruction. Each lesson has the standards covered, materials list, lesson vocabulary, detailed activity lesson plans, and all necessary student follow-up practice sheets.

FirstieScience encourages a daily routine, but please know that as the teacher you can adjust the lessons and make them best work for your daily schedule and time allotment. Each lesson the students will partake in a quick lesson opener, skill lesson, science journal entry, and each day the students will take part in an experiment or experiment follow-up. Please note that all student follow-up practice sheets can be shrunk and placed into a student science journal. FirstieScience has a daily science journal task. This is highly recommended and if students are unable to write their entry, they may color a matching picture to show their understanding.

What About Standards?

The units are based upon commonly used state science standards as well as the Next Generation Science Standards! Below are the NGSS standards!

Unit 1: 1-LS3-1. Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents.
Unit 2: 1-ESS1-2. Make observations at different times of year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year.
Unit 3: 1-PS4-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light. 1-ESS1-1. Use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted.
Unit 4: 1-PS4-2. Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects can be seen only when illuminated.
Unit 5: K-2-ETS1-1. Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.

I already own I need this?

Well, of course that is totally up to you! In my FirstieCurriculum map I have mapped out a combination use of FirstieScience, FirstieStem, and FirstieHealth *COMING SOON* for the school year! You can check out the FirstieCurriculum map HERE!

What is the difference between KinderScience and FirstieScience?

Kinder and Firstie science units are similar in the topics and skills that are covered. The first grade version includes "firstie branded" worksheets and daily science journal entry! If you own KinderScience you can email me for this version!
