Creative Science Curriculum – Life Science – Grade Kindergarten Teacher Edition

$14.25

The STEAM topical program provides by discipline STEAM projects based upon our belief that people learn best by doing.
Reading is doing; watching teachers present is doing; working in groups and being directed by teachers is doing. However, TPS believe the best way to start learning is where the student has to think outside the box and work in small collaborative groups;
the students use critical thinking to master new concepts. TPS has therefore provided a STEAM, project-based learning program, written from scratch, to exactly align to NGSS requirements, and each grade has Life, Physical and Earth Science books.
All learning starts in each area of science with a STEM project. TPS partner with CeMaST, Illinois State University, a leading STEM university. CeMaST professors have been developing this type of instructional material for over 25 years. Traditional teachers may have initial concerns about the transition from prior Science standards and delivery of a STEAM program. TPS provide personalized support and pacing together with personalized materials kits. TPS asks that you be open to new pedagogy.
This program is built as a topical program. It is STEAM program and thereby does encompass all strands of science, technology, engineering, arts and math within it. All content is aligned to NGSS, Common Core Math, ELA, Arts and Safety standards. Components include teacher and student by discipline textbooks containing STEM, Traditional, Arts and assessments by DCI/SEP/CCC. Online and printed assessments include science makers, arts projects, open ended and multiple by DCI/SEP/CCC written and verbal assessments, with rubrics. Please read about each component by visiting the description and additional information below.
