Life Science: Session 4
Curriculum Resources: BSCS Science T.R.A.C.S.
BSCS’s Science T.R.A.C.S. (Teaching Relevant Activities for Concepts and Skills) engages young learners in science and technology through active, inquiry-oriented experiences guided by the National Science Education Standards and the Benchmarks for Science Literacy.
Through investigations into the weather, the Sun, the Moon, the stars, plants and animals, electrical systems, ecosystems, and much more, students not only develop an awareness of the world around them, but also an understanding of how that world works. Students also learn to work together as reliable members of a scientific team—a great way to make sure everybody in the group is involved and successful.
With BSCS Science T.R.A.C.S., students are partners with their teachers in the assessment process. Within each lesson, students check their own understanding individually or with their team. For more information, contact:
