The creators of Mystery Science believe in capturing a child's curiosity and forming it into the ability to think scientifically. Mystery Science has activities for second through fifth grade. It is set up so the average elementary teacher, with no specialization in science, can deliver intriguing, inquiry-based science lessons. Each grade level has a collection of themes with four to eight lessons. The lessons are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and support the Common Core ELA standards. They include activities, videos and discussions, and extras. The extras include additional activities, informational reading, and more. Keep your eye on Mystery Science!
Some of the activities are linked to Harcourt products and require a log in. However, there are some that are open to anyone. For example, under Language Arts, follow the link to preview some of their web resources. Grammar Practice Park has lots of games for grades 3-5.
