Meet Notebook + Kesler Science
Teaching science just got easier.
Teachers need high-quality lessons that make prep time faster and easier - without sacrificing the creative, personal touch they bring to their classes. That's why Kesler Science offers thousands of engaging, customizable lessons and activities for 4th-8th grade science classrooms. Your classroom is unique and so are your students, so we have designed a wide range of differentiated materials using the 5E model with tons of options for digital and printable use all available within the easy-to-use, cloud-based science platform, PocketLab Notebook Pro.
Kesler Science and the 5E Model
The 5E Model is a research-based pedagogy that puts the responsibility for learning in the hands of students. Throughout the five stages - Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate - student questions drive inquiry-based learning and help them to build a scientific skill set. The 5E Model provides excitement and flexibility for teachers and students alike.
