Proposed Materials for K-5 Science on Display now

Proposed Materials for K-5 Science on Display now

As per District Policy, any new curriculum material is placed on public display for 30 days prior to adoption.  This year, a committee of teachers and administrators investigated several options and chose their preferred resource: Amplify.  The criteria for evaluating materials included the following:

  • Aligned with NGSS/PA STEELS Standards (Newly adopted Science Curriculum by PDE)
  • Prepared lessons/slides
  • Hands-on experiences
  • High Quality assessments
  • Leveled readers/differentiation
  • Integration with ELA, Math, Social Studies.

When evaluating these and other factors, Amplify will best meet the needs of our students as they experience a new set of standards focused on students DOING Science more than ever before. 

The materials are on display in our District Curriculum Office at 2229 E Buck Rd. Pennsburg, PA 18073.  If you would like to view them, please reach out to Stacy Sterrett at 215-679-7961, ext 2464 to arrange a time with someone from our Curriculum Office.  

We thank the teachers who have worked so hard to seek, find, and choose the best materials for our UPSD students!
