Online Science Education for Elementary Kids and Students
Science Power is an engaging and visually rich supplemental science curriculum site for the upper elementary grades education. Its content is arranged around 95 lessons that cover topics from living things and ecosystems to Earth science, weather and space, matter, and forces and energy. The online science lessons are rich enough to be used in a full classroom setting but simple enough to be used at home for science homework help and science home schooling.
Each Science Power lesson includes a variety of supplemental online science curriculum resources, such as vocabulary glossaries, extension activities, critical thinking questions, and experiments—many of them with engaging videos. Custom animations and interactive science games create an active learning environment for the science classroom or science home schooling online. Science homework help features include main-idea checks, interactive quizzes, and experiments and extension activities that reinforce classroom learning.
To assist in organizing this wealth of supplemental science curriculum resources, the online science education site is thoroughly correlated to popular science textbooks as well as state and provincial educational standards. Trackable tests help the science classroom or science home schooling teacher monitor student progress. Differentiated and read-aloud versions of the lesson text make Science Power an ideal science homework help tool for students of all reading levels.
