4th ELA & Science

I am so excited for science this year! We are lucky enough to be using the Discovery Education Science Techbook! It is billed as an online textbook, but it is actually way more! The program is so interactive and way more relevant for 21st century students! It includes reading passages like any other textbook, but unlike a textbook, it aligns perfectly to the Michigan standards for science. It is also updated and improved constantly, which is very unlike a textbook! It also includes virtual labs, streaming videos aligned to the lesson, online assessments, and so much more! Each student will get a username and password and can access their techbook from anywhere with internet access. If your child doesn't have home access, no problem! Anything they would need from the techbook will also be included in his or her science notebooks (for homework help and such).
