For us, learning is about bridging the gap between the world and the classroom. Our unique approach combines engaging storylines with real-world challenges and is designed to inspire lifelong curiosity.
Created for CA NGSS, Twig Science meets all 3-dimensional standards, while also integrating all relevant CA ELA, ELD, and Math standards, maximizing instructional opportunities, and ensuring there is always time for science.
Twig Science has been developed in collaboration with leading academics and California teachers to ensure that, through developmentally appropriate progressions, Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts are addressed throughout each module and across the grades.
Make each lesson a voyage of discovery.
Kick off each lesson with a range of attention-grabbing resources, from award-winning short videos to prior-knowledge read-alouds!
Communicating what’s been learned is a pivotal part of the lesson. Whether in the Twig Book or in front of the class, students explain phenomena by citing evidence, and begin to articulate their application of crosscutting concepts.
Students demonstrate their deeper understanding of the module phenomena and review earlier assumptions captured during the pre-exploration exercise.
We all have a responsibility to level the playing field and enable students to achieve their full potential. The rich diversity of the CA K-6 classroom provides unique challenges and opportunities. Twig Science provides comprehensive support that enables teachers to bring the wonder of science into every classroom. Available support includes: cultural connections, leveled readers, language routines, family outreach, English learner language supports, and more.
