Thanks so much for viewing my KinderScience Curriculum units bundled. KinderScience Curriculum is an engaging science curriculum with young learners in mind! KinderScience 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 KinderScience
KinderScience is based upon five units; Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, Space and Simple Machines, and Five Senses. Each is broken down to 10 lessons and each lesson can take from 1-2 days to complete. Each unit covers at least two weeks of instruction. The lesson plan has the standards covered, materials list, lesson vocabulary, detailed activity lesson plans, and all necessary student follow-up practice sheets.
KinderScience 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, 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. You can also choose to have students track their daily science activities in their journal with or without the included response sheets.
Unit One: Life Science INCLUDED
Unit Two: Earth Science INCLUDED
Unit Three: Physical Science INCLUDED
Unit Four: Space and Simple Machines INCLUDED
Unit Five: Five Senses INCLUDED
Can I teach the units out of order?
Yes! Just like with my STEM units you can teach them out of order to fit your needs and pacing!
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!
K-LS1 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes, K-ESS3-1. Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live
K-ESS3-3. Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment.
K-PS3-1. Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface.
K-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
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 KinderStem...do I need this?
Well, of course that is totally up to you! In my KinderCurriculum map I have mapped out a combination use of KinderScience, KinderStem, and KinderHealth *COMING SOON* for the school year! You can check out the KinderCurriculum map HERE!
