What would happen if we had automobiles, but no roads? Light bulbs, but no electricity? Our world functions smoothly when systems are in place. Transportation, health care, and education all are organized into systems that we depend upon daily. The Systems Differentiated Curriculum Kit provides exciting activities to help students discover the systems that exist all around them.
The books in Prufrock's new Differentiated Curriculum Kits employ a differentiated, integrated curriculum based on broad themes. This all-in-one curriculum helps teachers save planning time, ensure compliance with national standards, and most importantly, pique their students' natural excitement and interest in discovery. By participating in the wide variety of activities in the Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grade 4, students will discover the systems around them and gain a lifelong desire to learn.
In Systems Book 1: Exploration, Culture, and Ecology, students will discover the solar system, the water cycle, and their family history (among many other things). In Systems Book 2: Settlement, Currency, and Measurement, students will discover their hometown history, probability math, and climatology (among many other things). In Systems Book 3: Economics, Climate, and Comparisons, students will explore the system of free enterprise, weather systems, and the systems on other planets (among many other things).
Each book contains detailed lesson plans, reproducible activity sheets, and assessment tools.
Students will discover the importance of systems and the consequences when one part of a system is removed or does not function properly.
