HMH Into Science nurtures students with a simpler, more effective learning solution. The 3-dimensional learning combined with a phenomena-based storyline meets both the letter and spirit of Next Generation Science Standards.
Narrative stories in FUNomenal Leveled Readers model the process of scientific exploration to prepare students for hands-on learning.
The FUNomenal Leveled Readers support ELA standards for reading, writing, and listening. With three levels to choose from, students get the differentiation they need.
For Grade K, FUNomenal Stories Flip Charts let teachers share stories during reading time while displaying images and vocabulary support.
The Student Activity Guide is about half the size of a traditional student book.
For Grades K–2, the student books contain only hands-on activities.
For Grades 3–5, when students are more developmentally ready for science content, it is included.
The social and emotional learning wound through student activities helps learners develop key competencies as they progress.
SEL activities are featured in every FUNomenal Leveled Reader and embedded in the Student Activity Guides
