Choose from a full spectrum of support services to ensure success—from program-specific courses to embedded coaching.

Embedded Professional Support

Saving valuable prep time, Content Refreshers for every lesson (in print and online) help keep teachers up to speed on science topics. Charts in the print planning pages break down key topics and learning goals. mySmartPlanner on the all-in-one online Teacher Dashboard supports flexible planning and customization, and the Digital Lessons and Labs offer easy access to unit- and lesson-level teaching resources.

Our grade-level solutions

Grades K–5

Single-grade elementary editions feature complete print and digital curricula: write-in textbooks and Interactive Online Student and Teacher Editions with additional digital resources.

Grades 6–8

At the middle school level, 11 topical modules (write-in texts plus full digital editions) covering Life, Earth & Space, Physical Science, and Engineering can be matched to a district’s standards progression.

OUTCOMES
1
Inspire investigative, scientific thinking

Students learn science best by doing and experiencing. With abundant hands-on opportunities, both digital and offline, supported by Lab Manuals and Equipment Kits, students get engaged in investigating, asking questions, drawing conclusions, and sharing their findings—all key ingredients for learning that lasts.

2
Build STEM and 21st-century skills

Continual coverage of STEM topics throughout ScienceFusion—in lessons and labs, People and Careers in Science profiles, and the embedded technology and coding curriculum—builds students’ excitement for further study and science-based careers.

3
Advance nonfiction and science literacy skills

Through multiple complementary components, students have plenty of opportunities to build their skills in reading nonfiction, writing about science, and understanding scientific concepts. Science & Engineering Leveled Readers offer high-interest topics in a range of reading levels. ScienceSaurus® Handbooks use illustration and clear explanations to support concepts. And write-in prompts in the print workbooks and online Student Editions promote writing and scientific thinking.

4
Use multimodal tools to elevate learning for all

ScienceFusion’s instructional options in a variety of learning modalities make it easier to teach and reinforce concepts, to promote deeper understanding, and to reach all learners in their unique learning styles. With two curriculum paths to choose from, teachers can enhance the print lessons with enriching video, simulations, and animations or choose an entirely digital path, depending on individual students’ needs.

5
Seamlessly deliver high-impact science lessons

A wealth of Teacher Edition support helps instructors find just the right fusion of program components to develop science skills, concepts, and vocabulary through inquiry and application. Charts in the print program make lesson planning simple, and the Teacher Online Management Center supports easy delivery of the print and digital lessons, assignments, and assessments with reporting to make quick adjustments that ensure success.
