How it Works:
Students go through the highly engaging lessons online, enjoying the interactive questions, animations, images and videos.
- Narrated: All lessons and directions are both written and narrated to facilitate learning for those students working on their reading skills.
- No Expiration Date: There is no specific expiration date for the online lessons. So if your student takes more than a year to go through the course — no problem.
- Quizzes: There are fun quarterly crossword puzzles to help with scientific word retention..
Build & Experiment
- Students build a project (e.g. derby car) at the beginning of each section.
- Students then use the project in their experiments throughout that section.
- As an example, students will use the derby car to experiment with concepts like forces, frictions, motion, machines, etc.
The student finishes by completing an activity page to reinforce what they have learned.
- There are two activity pages for each lesson. One for the younger students and an additional experiment for the older students.
- These activities can be completed either the same day as the online lesson, or they can be done on a separate days.
