Science Kit Cooperative Updates
2020-2021 School Year
The NEWESD 101 Science Kit Cooperative wanted to pass on some updates on some exciting changes we have in the works to assist with your science education for fall.
- Grade 2 science kits are being upgraded to the BBS 3D version. This will give teachers access to additional digital resources, assignment planning, more phenomena-based lessons, etc.
- Canvas courses for teachers grades K-8 will support virtual learning and blended models with lessons and materials.
- In August/September, we are planning to have blended learning workshops for the science kits as well as another session of training on how to use the digital resources with the 3D version kits in grades 2-5. Additional Zoom sessions are planned to onboard and support teachers new to the kits or to their grade level.
- When it is possible, we have packaged lessons in a way that will help to minimize sharing of materials and are working on flexible alternatives to meet the varied needs of districts.
We are excited to work with you in whichever model(s) work(s) best for your district. More information and specifics will be shared at a later date. Please let me know what questions you may have!
