At Science4Us the study of living things begins with the Living and Nonliving module. Students explore the similarities and differences between living and nonliving things and learn four characteristics that all living things share (they have needs, they are made up of parts, they respond to change, they reproduce). Students learn to identify living and nonliving things through clues, comparing what they learn to the characteristics they know.

The Animals module begins with an area of fascination for students, animals of all sorts. An animated host begins the unit by introducing students to wild animals in their habitats. In online and offline activities, students broaden their understanding of animals by learning to identify and classify animals into six categories: mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles, and invertebrates.

Science4Us begins the study of matter with everyday objects that students are comfortable with. The Materials and Mixtures module begins the unit. Students explore everyday objects they know like recyclables and identify objects made of wood, cloth, plastic and metal.

  • Welcome to Science4Us

    Science4Us allows busy teachers to deliver an exemplary science educational experience to their early elementary school students.

    The mission of Science4Us is to provide a solid foundation of fundamental science concepts for students, on which a deep understanding and interest in science can be built.

    Science4Us realizes that teachers are an integral part of our mission. Without the proper resources and support, teachers can struggle to provide a solid science foundation. The Science4Us curriculum includes embedded on-demand pedagogical and content training for teachers that does not require a large time commitment. Science4Us provides all of the support that teachers need to confidently and effectively lead exemplary science lessons, providing the science foundation that their students need. Science4Us does not require extensive preparation or training for the teachers.

    The Science4Us curriculum is a complete, standards-based, core science curriculum that delivers digital and real-world science experiences to early elementary students. The efficacy of Science4Us has been established that it provides a positive effect on students' conceptual and procedural knowledge as well as their motivation to learn.

    Consistent with best practices and as prescribed by both Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core State Standards, Science4Us has a cross-curricular approach which uses broad cross cutting ideas as well as digital explorations and virtual investigations. Science4Us provides foundational science knowledge in a way that truly engages the learner and will lead more students to reach for the STEM-related jobs and industries of the future.
