New Curriculum Review: Twig Science Next Gen by Imagine Learning

Is your district looking for science materials to support the NGSS? Take a look at Learning List’s review of Imagine Learning’s Twig Science.

Imagine Learning’s Twig Science is a comprehensive science program for grades K-8.  The K-5 material is provided by grade level. The 6-8 material is provided in both integrated and discipline pathways (Earth and Space, Life, and Physical) and is not grade specific. Materials are available in print or digital format.

The goal of the program is to provide interactive learning experiences that engage students in learning about science and natural phenomena. The instruction focuses on connecting real-world phenomena with three-dimensional learning.

Units are based on anchoring phenomena and driving questions. The material supports the intent of the Next Generation Science Standards by consistently providing students with three-dimensional learning experiences, integrating the Cross-Cutting Concepts (CCCs) and Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs) with the Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) to provide cohesive storylines.

Teacher and student materials are available in English and Spanish. Instructional suggestions for supporting special populations of students are provided at point-of-use. All of the materials are well-organized and easily accessible on the digital platform.
