    The Science Kids curriculum is intended to help teachers implement developmentally appropriate, hands-on science activities for children in Preschool, Kindergarten and the early grades. The activities in these packets are based on the scientific method and encourage inquiry-based learning. All activities can be differentiated to meet the needs of your students.

    This year long bundle includes 16 Science Units:

    • “What do Scientists Do?”

    • “Floating and Sinking”

    • “Color Mixing”

    • “Magnets”

    • “Kitchen Chemistry”

    • “Ramps”

    • “Mirrors”

    • “Gingerbread Science”

    • “Freezing and Melting”

    • “My Human Body”

    • “Music and Vibration”

    • “Shadows and Light”

    • “Weather and Temperature”

    • “Taking Care of the Earth”

    • “Taking Care of Pets”

    • “Taking Care of Plants”

    This packet includes enough lessons for 32 weeks of hands-on learning. While 32 weeks is a bit shorter than a typical school year, this curriculum is designed to be flexible in order to give children the time they need to learn, so extra days are allowed for each unit. Additional, optional activities are also included for many of the units, and these can be used to help fill your days if needed.

    This curriculum supports the Next Generation Science Standards for kindergarten.

    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.
    Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth's surface. Examples of Earth's surface could include sand, soil, rocks, and water. Assessment of temperature is limited to relative measures such as warmer/cooler.
    Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
    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.
    Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live. Examples of relationships could include that deer eat buds and leaves, therefore, they usually live in forested areas; and, grasses need sunlight so they often grow in meadows. Plants, animals, and their surroundings make up a system.
