Late Elementary and Middle School Science Learning

The Accelerate level of Science Unlocked is designed for most students in third grade through seventh grade (ages 8-12). The learning experiences include more reading and writing than they do at the Wonder level, but care has been taken not to overwhelm students with content as they develop important science skills. Accelerate level activities and text emphasize personal connections to natural phenomena and ways they apply to everyday life.
