Through the corresponding science songs audio CD in both English and Spanish, students are able to familiarize science concepts and vocabulary with unique tunes and lyrics. The unique format allows the teacher to provide quick and easy lessons that meet the needs of different learners and provide an opportunity for students to apply concepts through hands-on science activities.
The Teacher Kit includes everything needed to support your students' learning: Video DVD, Digital Read Aloud CD-ROM, Read Aloud Books (9 per pack), Vocabulary Photo and Routine Cards (95 per level), Science Songs Audio CD, Teacher's Idea Book, Teacher Resource CD-ROM, and a convenient carrying case.
