1 A Correlation of to the Medford School District 549C Science Standards Grades K-5 P/S-3

2 Introduction This document demonstrates how Scott Foresman Science meets the Medford School District 549C Science Standards. Page references are to the Teacher s Edition. Lessons in the Teacher s Edition contain facsimile Student Edition and ancillary pages. Pearson Scott Foresman is proud to introduce our all new Scott Foresman Science, Kindergarten through Grade Six. Extensive research and analysis is the foundation for Scott Foresman Science and guides the instructional design. Scaffolded Inquiry Scott Foresman Science is built on three levels of inquiry: Directed Inquiry, Guided Inquiry, and Full Inquiry. All three levels engage students in activities that build a strong science foundation and help them develop a full understanding of the inquiry process. How to Read Science Powerful connections between reading skills and science process skills in every chapter advance science literacy for all students. Differentiated Instruction Leveled Readers for every Student Edition chapter teach the same science concepts, vocabulary, and reading skills at each student s reading level. Time-Saving Strategies Time-saving strategies are built right into the Teacher s Edition that will save the teacher hours of time in lesson preparation. Quick Teaching Plans cover the standards even when class time is short. Everything needed for each activity comes in its own chapter bag. With the Activity Placemat and Tray, activity setup takes only 30 seconds. Premade Bilingual Bulletin Board Kits save time by creating attractive bulletin boards quickly and easily. Technology Scott Foresman Science brings teaching and learning together in one convenient spot the computer. From sfsuccessnet.com to educational CDs and DVDs, this program provides a variety of interactive tools to help support, extend, and enrich classroom instruction. The Online Teacher s Edition provides access to the same printed content, so the teacher can plan lessons with the customizable Lesson Planner from home or school computers. The Online Student Edition allows students, teachers, and parents to access the content of the textbook from computers at school or at home.

22 NOTE: At all grade levels, each Scott Foresman chapter begins and ends with a laboratory activity. These are identified as a Directed Inquiry and a Guided Inquiry. Each unit ends with a third laboratory activity identified as a Full Inquiry. This research-based process of developing students understanding of Inquiry is called Scaffolded Inquiry and was developed by one of the Scott Foresman authors, Dr. Karen Ostlud. (Please see pp. EMxxix-EMxxxi in the back of the Teacher's Edition.) See samples of these activities in chapter 10. pp.284, , at grade 4. These laboratory activities require that the students apply the appropriate processes of authentic science inquiry as presented at the beginning of each student edition. Information is provided for the student on How to Read Science, How Scientists Use Scientific Methods, Collecting and Analyzing Data, Using Scientific Methods, Using Science Process Skills, Science Tools and Science Safety. See the Student Edition, pp. xx-xxxii. These same process skills are in compliance with the National and Oregon Science Standards, and they align with the inquiry section of the science standards, at each grade level, in the Medford School District 549C. ** Graphic Organizers, and other Visual Strategies, are used extensively throughout each student text to assist in the application of the process skills. ** Reference: Teaching Reading in Science - A supplement to Teaching Reading in the Content Areas. (Teacher's Manual 2nd edition) by Mary Lee Barton and Deborah L. Jordan Additional activities are provided in the Activity Flip Chart, see grade 4, p. 177E for an example. The online Student Edition offers additional activities and are referenced in the student edition. See grade 4, page 180 for an example.
