Click and teach. There is a 13 page (out of 280) preview. This includes a complete list of tub supplies.
18 Weeks of Lessons! 90 Daily Lessons! All the NGSS standards covered. If you alternate science and social studies, this is the entire year!
18 Weeks of Science Lessons, Handouts, and Simple Projects, Activities; Activities to make Teaching Science the Next Generation Science SO Easy!
Be finished with your NGSS science alignment! The entire Kindergarten science curriculum plus all the extras. Multitude of teaching modalities used. So easy to teach. Click and teach. Very little prep as far as kindergarten goes. Just set out supplies for the week and be ready for the students to learn through exploration. Your role is to facilitate the learning by asking questions.
It is designed to cover everything that we are told to cover and how we are told to cover it. It seems impossible. Covers use of technology, high engagement, games, activities, simple projects, focused lessons, formative, summative, alternative, and project-based assessments.

1) Print and put in binder. (binder cover included)
2) Using the science supply list, gather supplies, put into tub, and use the science supply label.
3) go to http://sciencekindergarten.weebly.com/ to follow week by week.
Your role as a teacher would be to lead inquiries and facilitate.
Students' role would be to discover and explore.
To use this, students need access to computers for online practice. The teacher needs a projector, projector board, smartboard, or interactive board to do play and discuss video clips, and model the activities and games.
Lesson Plans (includes standards, student objectives, essential questions, procedure)
Colorful/Fun/Interactive Student Handouts
List of Formative and Summative Assessments (Assessments included)
Simple Science Projects
Simple Science Activities
Supply Lists (three ways week by week, one page at a glance, and checklist)
Seamless Incorporation of Technology

Fact Cards (to minimize buying supplies)
*Created to make teaching science simple, but with impact.
*The shift in teaching is that teachers have to be well planned to promote learning through engagement. With this shift, the way teaching looks has changed. It should look like students exploring and discovering and teachers facilitating and asking how, why, when,etc. questions.
Exploratory Lessons, Science Projects, Activities, and Games inlcude....
K-2.ETS1.1 Ask questions, make observations, and gather innformation 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.
K-2.ETS1.2 Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
K-2.ETS1.3 Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
K.ESS2.1 Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time.
K.ESS2.2 Construct an argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals (including humans) can change the environment to meet their needs.
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.ESS3.2 Ask questions to obtain information about the purpose of weather forecasting to prepare for, and respond to, severe weather.
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.LS1.1 Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.
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.PS2.2 Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
K.PS3.1 Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface.
K.PS3.2 Use tools and materials to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area.
