NK Science Material Resources

 
   
 
 
Note: 2018-19  elementary science marks year three of a four-year shift in science curriculum materials from  NKSD provided materials to all Foss Science Kits provided through OESD 114.


All science kits are available in classrooms on a rotating basis, roughly following trimesters.  Teachers may choose ONE science kit per trimester.  Multi-age classrooms will need to pick and choose which grade level kit they will teach.  Optional science kits (listed below) are available upon request.
