NEW K-5 Science Resources

Good Morning,

Today the Michigan Mathematics and Science Leadership Network (MMSLN) and Michigan Science Teachers Association (MSTA) announce our

K-5 Remote Science Anchoring Phenomenon Routine Learning Experiences!

Leveraging the Anchoring Phenomenon Routine (borrowed from nextgenstorylines) and integrating KLEWS charts, the MMSLN and MSTA materials include synchronous and asynchronous science learning and lead students’ to AT-HOME investigations.

We selected one grade-level PE bundle for the focus of each K-5 resource and built the Anchoring Phenomenon Routine to engage students in science phenomenon that then support students’ own, at-home, investigations.

These OER materialscan be

  • used as written
  • enhanced and developed into full-units
  • used several times throughout the school year
  • easily adjusted for in-school learning

If you are starting the school year virtually or if you think you might need to transition to virtual learning during the school year – these materials are for you. High-quality science learning, designed with simple remote learning options, standards-based – – all the key factors in implementing science in the 2020-2021 elementary classroom!
