Introducing the Building Blocks series from Rebecca Keller, PhD, and Real Science-4-Kids. Cover fundamental aspects of five science subjects over the course of a year.
Building Blocks is for students from pre-K or kindergarten through middle school. (Grade 8 coming soon).
What is spiral learning?
Kids learn chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy with the spiral teaching method. First, teach the basics of each topic. Throughout the year, revisit the basics while adding related details and complexity.
The outcome? Students display better long-term mastery of facts and concepts.
Plus, spiral learning adapts well to different learning styles. Visual learners revisit and expand topics using images. Verbal learners use reading and writing to build upon lessons, and so on.
