Science Trek: Educator Resources

Science Trek offers a wealth of materials specifically for teachers. Each topic site includes several tabs with a wealth of information. Click on the “Educators” tab in each individual topic site. For each science topic, you’ll find essential background for teachers, suggested lesson plans, ideas for classroom activities, resources from PBS LearningMedia, alignment with standards, and links to interactives and tools suitable for whole-class and small-group instruction.

The information under the “Facts” tab provides student-friendly content for each topic to supplement the videos. You may also want to direct individual students to the “Links” and “Games” tabs to expand learning beyond our site. Under the “Books” tab, you’ll find suggestions for your classroom library or for books to recommend to students.
