These standards-based kits are designed to specifically align with California’s science curriculum. The included kit supplies and instructions combine for fun, hands-on activities that demonstrate the core science principles at each grade level. Through interactive inquiry, your child experiences a higher level of learning and information retention that they will thoroughly enjoy. The kits include all the materials needed to complete the curriculum activities. Written materials to accompany the kits are available online. Elementary kits have 2–4 activities per standard set (Life Science, Physical Science, etc.). All materials are packaged in a clear, durable storage tote.

The activities in the kit teach to these Grade 1 standards:
3.b Students know when liquid water evaporates, it turns into water vapor in the air and can reappear as a liquid when cooled or as a solid if cooled below the freezing point of water.
Shaping Earth’s Surface
2.a Students know water running downhill is the dominant process in shaping the landscape, including California’s landscape.
Heat (Thermal Energy) (Physical Science)
3.a Students know energy can be carried from one place to another by heat flow or by waves, including water, light and sound waves, or by moving objects.
3.b Students know that when fuel is consumed, most of the energy released becomes heat energy.
Ecology (Life Sciences)
4.e Students know differences in pressure, heat, air movement, and humidity result in changes of weather.
5.a Students know energy entering ecosystems as sunlight is transferred by producers into chemical energy through photosynthesis and then from organism to organism through food webs.
6.a Students know the utility of energy sources is determined by factors that are involved in converting these sources to useful forms and the consequences of the conversion process.
