Life Science: Session 6

Curriculum Resources: Insights

Insights is an elementary hands-on inquiry science program designed to develop children's understanding of key concepts and to improve students' abilities to think creatively and critically. Insights also encourages problem solving and integrates science with the rest of the curriculum.

The Insights curriculum is made up of 17 modules, each of which contains 12 to 20 “learning experiences” (hands-on, inquiry activities) in which teachers guide students as they explore new concepts. Throughout the modules, six major science themes are represented: systems, change, structure and function, diversity, cause and effect, and energy.

Originally funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, the Insights program was developed by science education specialists at Education Development Center, Inc. For more information, contact:
