FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (PRWEB) March 29, 2016
Time4Learning.com, a provider of online curriculum for homeschool, after-school enrichment and skill building, announced the availability of Science4Us, a comprehensive, standards-based online science program. This allows Time4Learning to expand its science instruction for its members in kindergarten through grade 3.
The new science material consists of more than 300 interactive activities, and addresses science inquiry, physical science, life science, and earth and space science. The Science4Us curriculum is built around the 5E Instructional Model — Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate.
One of the unique attributes of the Science4Us elementary science curriculum is the integration of math, literacy and engineering practices within the science instructional modules.
“The demand for engaging, interactive early elementary science is at an all-time high,” says Time4Learning Founder and President John Edelson. “Studies show that as students enter middle school, many of them, especially girls and minorities, lose confidence in their abilities to learn Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). However, when we get elementary students excited about science, we’re building a foundation and love for STEM that can be fostered and built upon for years to come.”
Igniting a passion for STEM at an early age isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s an imperative for U.S. competitiveness. According to a ranking from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the U.S. is number 38 out of the 40 most advanced countries when it comes to graduating science majors.
“To improve our country’s rankings and recognition as a STEM leader, we can’t wait until a student arrives at their college doorstep and encourage them to pursue a degree in science, math or engineering,” says Edelson. “That’s why education curriculum providers like Time4Learning must lead the way in providing engaging and enticing instructional activities to today’s youth.”
