The Battle Creek Area Mathematics and Science Center has developed a Kindergarten through Seventh grade inquiry-based science curriculum that is aligned with the Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations. The purpose of the program is to provide good, inquiry-based science instruction in the classroom with opportunities for students to engage in all four strands of science proficiency (physical science, life science, earth science, and inquiry and technology). The curriculum provides teachers with classroom instruction that includes opportunities for interaction in the classroom, where students carry out investigations, talk and write about their observations and emerging understandings, and discuss ways to test them. Each unit undergoes an extensive development and evaluation process.
Change in 1LS, An Animal’s Life
The Battle Creek Area Mathematics and Science Center has made a change in the organism in the 1LS An Animal’s Life science unit. We have changed from the Monarch butterfly to the Painted Lady butterfly. We are hopeful that this change will bring fewer fatalities and greater success in observing the life cycle. We have posted the necessary changes on our website for teachers to download and make changes to their Teacher Guides. (Link to Login Page)
