KinderScience Unit One: Life Science
Thanks so much for viewing my KinderScience Unit One: Life Science. 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.
