Supplemental Science Curriculum Available for the 2018-2019 School Year (K-5)
Elementary and K-8 Schools
The Sacramento City Unified School District has partnered with
the following organizations for the 2018-2019 school year to
offer you supplementary science instruction leading up to a full
curriculum adoption: Mystery Science, EcoRise and Soilborn
Mystery Science offers K-5 mystery bundles across all content areas. All mysteries come with hands on activities, embedded phenomena for students to think through and content-level assessments.
EcoRise, Soilborn Farms and the Environmental Education Initiative (EEI) offers lessons targeted primarily to sustainability – gardening, energy, waste, etc. These lessons primarily focus on the life science content areas.
Please see the informational flyer attached to this posting. Teachers will be informed by the end of the week. Please keep in mind that the supplemental curriculum we are offering should be utilized by willing and empowered educators. We realize our elementary educators have a lot to juggle at the moment – if you have questions, please reach out we would love to support.
