Description

Hands-On Science for British Columbia completely aligns with BC’s New Curriculum for Science. Grounded in the Know-Do-Understand model, First Peoples knowledge and perspectives, and student-driven scientific inquiry, this custom-written resource:

  • emphasizes Core Competencies, so students engage in deeper and lifelong learning
  • develops Curricular Competencies through hands-on activities
  • fosters a deep understanding of the Big Ideas in science

Each module contains resources for both teachers and students, including Curricular Competencies correlation charts; background information on science topics; complete, easy-to-follow lesson plans; downloadable image banks and reproducible student materials; and materials lists. Innovative elements for the new curriculum include:

  • a multi-age approach
  • an emphasis on technology, sustainability, and personalized learning
  • a fully developed assessment plan for summative, formative, and student self-assessment
  • a focus on real-life Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies
  • learning centres that focus on multiple intelligences and universal design for learning (UDL)
  • place-based learning activities and Makerspaces

Properties of Energy for Grades 3–5 will address Core Competencies and Learning Standards while students explore the following Big Ideas:

  • Thermal energy can be produced and transferred.
  • Energy can be transformed.
  • Machines are devices that transfer force and energy.
