Teachers in Grades K-5 will use *New* Next Generation Science Standards as a guide for their Science Instruction. Science instruction is often hands-on, including experiments, projects, and research.
In addition to Scott Foresman Science Textbooks, teachers also integrate Themes from the Journeys Reading Series. Scholastic Let's Find Out and Science Spin are also included in Science instruction.
