This module introduces students to the different types of tools used in science and how they help us study the world around us.

Everything around us is made up of something, often a collection of different things. This module guides students as they begin to identify the different materials everyday objects are made of–specifically wood, plastic, metal and cloth–and how mixtures can be made by combining different objects and materials.

Light energy is energy that can be seen and used to see the matter around us. It can be man-made or natural, like the light from the sun. In this module students are introduced to the characteristics and properties of light energy, its uses, and various sources of man-made and natural light.

Sound energy is energy that can be heard, but only when matter is present to carry the vibration. This module introduces students to the properties and characteristics of sound energy, how it is generated, and why sounds are different.

Magnets of all shapes, sizes and strength are used every day – holding up art projects on the fridge, sorting debris in landfills, and keeping high fashion jewelry fastened. In this module students explore the characteristics of magnets and the different materials they attract.

Life Science

Giant redwood trees, soft green blades of grass, bright tulips blooming in spring — plants are living things. This module introduces students to the world of plants as they discover that the needs of plants are much like their own needs.

Earth/Space

Whether rainy, sunny, cloudy, or windy, the weather describes what it’s like outside every day. Knowing the patterns of weather can help you to be prepared. In this module students explore the different types of weather and the tools needed to observe, measure and record it.

Lesson Activity Finder Tool

The lesson activity finder is one of the numerous useful tools that Let’s Read English provides for members. The activity finder is an alternative route for parents to preview lessons or find additional practices for their children easily.

Each lesson in the curriculum has a rare activity number referred to in the lesson plans as an “LA Number.” These numbers can be detected either on the scope and sequence pages or the lesson plans in the Parent Dashboard.

Please check our hints and help section for more information which provides more details about the activity finder.
