Science is messy. We do not always know the answer when we start.
We play. We explore. We poke around and stir things up. We try something not because we already know what will happen but because we want to know what will happen. Play off of students' natural curiosity in the classroom all while developing science, math, and literacy skills.Try it for Free
What does STEM look like in kindergarten?
Our kindergarten science curriculum aligns STEM activities to Next Generation Science Standards. Science lessons build on prior knowledge and experiences, which enables students to connect to new concepts and skills. Age-appropriate interactive activities, songs, and characters within engaging lesson plans bring kindergarten science to life. With math and literacy skills incorporated in every lesson, Science4Us is more than science education.
This is the year to build a framework for future science learning. Science4Us takes it further by providing opportunities for the youngest students to explore science concepts and practice literacy skills simultaneously using bite-sized lessons, perfect for center time, whole class lessons, or small groups.See How We Align
What do kindergarteners learn in STEM?
Kindergarteners are new to the study of science. Inquiry introduces students to the tools they will use throughout the year to help them make observations and measure. These tools may be as familiar as their five senses or as unfamiliar as a balance scale. Students will use scientific tools and inquiry skills as they work through all the modules they study.
The Physical Science lessons show students how to describe objects and sort them by their physical properties. For the Inquiry Science activities, students investigate and experiment with tools. In the Life Science activities, students observe and investigate plants and animals. The Earth and Space Science lessons allow kindergarten students to explore science concepts beyond their reach! Our kindergarten curriculum prepares students for 1st-grade STEM!

Everybody's Talking About Science4Us
Science skills are often difficult to acquire. Science4Us makes it fun and opens doors to students who have shut down science. Science in the past is something they thought they couldn’t learn. Now they can.- Science4Us Director, Advance Learning Academy, FL
Science4Us is a huge resource for my classroom. I love to see how the videos, songs and activities encourage students to think in new ways about the things they experience. My students look forward to science time every day!- Science4Us Teacher, Advance Learning Academy, FL
My students need to start science early to prepare for later grades. Science4Us gives them that foundation for science that they need. It’s also an avenue for critical thinking and problem-solving, skills they can apply across all domains.- Science4Us Principal, Broward County Public Schools, FL
Science4Us meets the needs of our digital natives. It allows them to do experiments, practice reading skills and produce math in relation to science. My second graders LOVED it. They really enjoyed the interactive notebook and being able to go back and see how their ideas changed as they learned more.- Science4Us Teacher, Palm Beach County Public School District, FL
When I walk down the halls, kids grab me by the legs and say, ‘we’re going to science!’ I was amazed because I hadn’t heard that enthusiasm from students before. Science4Us shows students how fun learning science can be and that they can do science. It involves them more [in learning] and says, ‘now you do it!’- Science4Us Teacher, Broward County Public Schools, FL
