Action-Packed, Real-World Storylines

Relevant unit storylines offer intentional sequencing of activities to help students take ownership of their learning.

Students will engage in an action-packed journey to make sense of phenomena in a way that aligns with their natural curiosities. Our captivating lessons guide students to take ownership of their learning by harnessing their questions to drive investigation and discovery.

Attention-Grabbing Adventures

Phenomena-driven, research-backed science curriculum cultivates three-dimensional learning experiences.

To engage students in three-dimensional learning, the instructional units in Discovery Education Science Techbook are designed to support student sense-making anchored in phenomena that strategically integrate the DCIs, CCCs, and SEPs.

Students as Lead Investigators

Active investigation of phenomena prompts students to ask questions, build models and develop explanations to generate evidence of sensemaking.

Science Techbook offers students a variety of ways to explore including hand-on engineering activities and labs, virtual investigations, and STEM connections.

Content That Inspires Curiosity

Exclusive, original, and highly-engaging multimedia content makes science exciting and relevant for all students.

Vetted by curriculum experts and differentiated by grade level, the phenomena and content used in Science Techbook mirrors the unique interests of students and helps them make relevant, lasting connections between science, the classroom, and their everyday lives.

Navigating 3D Instruction
