How it works:
In Science Lessons and Investigations, first graders get to study and observe a variety of topics over the course of 14 comprehensive science units. As they build upon prior knowledge and experience, students will gain a better understanding of important science concepts. This resource helps teachers guide young learners through each unit and provides inspired ideas for hands-on activities and experiments.
Core subject areas and topics include:
- How Do Animals Use Their Body Parts?
- What Parts Do Plants Have and What Do They Do?
- How Do Body Parts Help Animals Grow and Survive?
