This sequence of instruction was developed in the Growing Elementary Science Project to help elementary teachers who were working remotely. We developed a short storyline that ties together a few sessions to help explore a specific concept. We tried to include some activities that honored and included the student’s family and experience, and some that included the potential for ELA learning goals. Students view a couple of videos and record what they notice and wonder about how plants change as seasons change. Students take a walk with family members to search for evidence of changes due to weather in their neighborhoods. It is part of ClimeTime - a collaboration among all nine Educational Service Districts (ESDs) in Washington and many Community Partners to provide programs for science teacher training around Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and climate science, thanks to grant money made available to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) by Governor Inslee.
This project helps children think about the correlation colors have with moods. There are multiple activities involved to engage the students in this lesson and prompt them to create their own ideas about the effects colors may have on moods.

Welcome to the UnboundEd Mathematics Guide series!Â These guides are designed to explain what new, high standards for mathematicsÂ say about what students should learn in each grade, and what they mean for curriculum and instruction.Â This guide, the first for Kindergarten, includes three parts. The first part gives a Â“tourÂ” of the standards forÂ Counting & CardinalityÂ using freely available online resources that you can use or adapt for your class. The second part shows how Counting & Cardinality relate to classification of objects in Kindergarten (K.MD.B). And the third part explains where Counting & Cardinality is situated in the progression of learning in Grades K-2.Â Throughout all of our guides, we include a large number of sample math problems. We strongly suggest tackling these problems yourself to help best understand the methods and strategies weÂ’re covering, and the potential challenges your students might face.Â
