Science4us.com Review

It's no secret we are huge fans of science in this house. Well recently I was contacted to review Science4us.com. When I told my 5 year old she was super excited, she really understands computers/games.



I don't want to ruin all of the fun but I will tell you about a great lesson we did involving Matter. I set Heaven up on the computer after I set her lesson up the day before. After her lesson, we did an activity that both kids loved! Super easy-super fun!


  • Made Pink Lemonade
  • Poured it in an ice cube tray
  • Waited overnight for it to change
  • Placed each cube in a glass of water to watch it change AGAIN




About The Company

Science4Us is a comprehensive web-based digital science curriculum for elementary students that includes all of the components necessary for teachers and parents to provide an exemplary science experience for all learners. It is standards based using the inquiry-based 5E Instructional Model.

How does it work?

Science4Us recognizes that not all classrooms are created equally. As such, the curriculum is designed to be flexible in nature and able to meet the needs of individual classrooms without adding additional software. Teachers can implement the curriculum using one computer for a whole group lesson or several computers for small group instruction. Also, because Science4us is web-based, students can access Science4Us individually in a media center or even at home on the family computer.
 

5E Instructional Model

Each module follows the same 5E structure. The first three E’s; Engage, Explore and Explain, are each represented by an online activity as well as an offline activity, followed by multiple Elaborate activities designed to provide cross-curricular opportunities for students to extend and broaden their knowledge and understanding through new experiences. Finally each module includes an interactive Evaluate to assess student learning gains

I recently had the opportunity to check out Science4Us. I was so excited! I love that it keeps records and looks like a great deal of fun for elementary students. I love the type of hands on lessons like the change of matter lesson. This type of lesson is really fun for students and they will remember it better for having had hands-on learning. Thanks for your review. I hope it helps others decide to give Science4Us a try!

Crisc. Great review and I'm so pleased that your kids like it. I'm so pleased because (disclaimer) I was involved in helping to create it.

Not only is Science4Us fun, it also has been reviewed by some educationologists (ie researchers) who've reviewed it for educational effectiveness and found it...effective!
