Time4Learning’s Kindergarten Lesson Plans

Describing matter correctly and accurately is an important skill for communicating scientific information. In this module, students are introduced to qualitative observations (those made using their senses) and quantitative observations (those made using tools to measure a numerical value).
Energy is available for plants and animals from many different sources. Even people need energy to live, work, grow, and play. This module guides students as they begin to identify energy. It also introduces three familiar sources of energy used every day: electricity, food, and sunlight.
Describing the location of an object accurately is an important skill for effective communication. In this module students explore spatial relationships and the vocabulary used to describe the location of items from multiple perspectives.
All living things need food, water, air, and a place to live and grow. This module explains the needs and characteristics that all living things share and guides students as they discover the differences between living and nonliving things.
Scaly swimming fish, high-jumping frogs, soft and furry bunnies, slithering snakes, feathery birds and fluttering butterflies–animals come in many different shapes and sizes. This module allows students to explore the many different types of animals and the characteristics that they all share.
Everything is made up of different materials – even the Earth. Earth is made up of rock, water, and soil. This module provides students with the opportunity to explore Earth’s different materials and how living things utilize them.
