Science Tools and Support

Science requires investigations to collect data to analyze to further the understanding of the phenomena. Central Rivers Media has tools to support this work. The science team is creating “How to Use” videos to support the use of these tools in the classroom. This is an on-going project so check back often as the collection grows.

Science Learning Pathways

Learning pathways can take on a variety of forms. The goal is to foster student agency in their learning process while using technology as a tool to further the learning.


Grade Level  Learning Pathway 
Kindergarten  What materials would we want to use to build the perfect playground so it is not too hot in summer and not too cold in winter?
1st Grade How do plants and animals meet their needs to survive?
5th Grade (Coming Soon) What is causing gravesite markers and structures to deteriorate over time, in Iowa?
Secondary  How does thermal energy transfer when combining varying temperatures of mediums?
