Starry Night education titles are now optimized for SMART Boards and have been awarded SMART Technologies' highest level of accreditation: SMART Board Application Elite.
Starry Night embraces the 5E method of science instruction and lesson planning: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate. These are the cornerstones of good science and correlate to both the National Science Education Standards in the United States and Common Framework of Science Learning Outcomes in Canada.
The activities in Starry Night Elementary are structured as adventures that enable the students to construct their own knowledge of the world around them. Each adventure addresses the science content standards, incorporates several science process skills and connects to language arts, fine arts, math and/or social studies in a seamless way.
The resources section includes post-assessment resources such as Log Sheets and KWL charts that can be compiled to create a complete logbook for each student.
