Two years of classroom research at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte have shown Teaching to Standards: Science to be highly effective in teaching science vocabulary and engaging students in inquiry-based lessons. Students participate in a hands-on experiments during each lesson and use the Student Response Guide to engage in the inquiry process. The curriculum is designed for students with moderate-to-severe developmental disabilities, including autism.
This consumable student extension workbook provides supplemental activities that connect four key science areas to the students' life, and extend their learning and opportunities to practice.
