New Curriculum Review: Savvas’ Elevate Science for NGSS

Does your district need instructional materials to support K-8 implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards? Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of Savvas’ (formerly Pearson) Elevate Science.

Elevate Science is a comprehensive science program for grades K-8. Materials are available in print and online. The program focuses on providing student-centered, three-dimensional learning. Elevate supports the development of critical and analytical thinking while developing literacy skills and an interest in STEM related activities.

The material focuses instruction on Quests and essential questions related to real-world situations. Quests provide real-world, phenomena-based scenarios that students explore throughout the course’s units of instruction. Each lesson includes another step in the Quest, and students share their findings at the end of each unit. Critical and analytical thinking is supported through investigations, labs, and scaffolded 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 and Science and Engineering Practices with the Disciplinary Core Ideas to provide cohesive storylines.

The digital platform provides an abundance of resources and support for teachers in the implementation of the NGSS and making instructional connections across content areas. Likewise, substantial digital resources for students support instruction in blended learning environments.
