Fun 1st Grade Science Lessons

The Science4Us curriculum is a complete, standards-based, core science curriculum that delivers digital and real-world science experiences using the 5E's to kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade students.

Elementary Science:Online, Interactive, Standards-Based

The Tools module introduces students to the tools scientists use for both qualitative and quantitative observations. Students learn to use tools such as their 5 senses, rulers, and balance scales through hands-on activities.

In the States of Matter module, students further explore the concept that anything on earth that has mass and takes up space is matter. This module introduces students to solids, liquids and gases, the three most common states of matter on earth, and the unique properties used to characterize each phase.

Elementary Science:Online, Interactive, Standards-Based

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.

Elementary Science:Online, Interactive, Standards-Based

In the Light Energy module, students learn that light energy is the energy that allows them to see the matter around them. Through interactive lesson and activities, students explore the differences between natural and man-made light.

Elementary Science:Online, Interactive, Standards-Based

The Sound Energy module allows students to experiment with energy that can be heard when matter is present to carry the vibration. Students learn about pitch, volume, and vibration as they explore and watch different methods of making sound.

Elementary Science:Online, Interactive, Standards-Based

Though every kindergarten student may know that magnets can be used to hold school artwork on the fridge, they may not know the many other uses for magnets there are. In the Magnets module students will learn about tiny and huge magnets that are used every day. Students will also learn to predict which objects a magnet will attract and test those predictions through interactive activities. The Silly Bulls game allows students to practice with the vocabulary they are learning so that they can use scientific terms to describe their explorations with magnets.

Elementary Science:Online, Interactive, Standards-Based

The Weather module allows students to explore Earth’s ordinary and extreme weather in safety. Activities include using the weather information to decide what an online character should wear and learning about how to stay safe during extreme weather.

Elementary Science:Online, Interactive, Standards-Based

The Plants module familiarizes students with the ways in which plants meet the four characteristics of living things. Students learn the parts and functions of plants and even invent their own plant in an illustrated online activity. They learn how plants meet their needs for food, water, air, and a place to live.

  • 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.
