New Elementary School Common
Core Science Curriculum

PHILADELPHIA, PA – October 25, 2012 – Core Learning announced the release of three more science courses in software and online formats aligned to the Common Core Science Objectives Framework for Grade 3, Grade 4, and Grade 5. The courses are Core Science: Physical Science II, Core Science: Life Science II, and Core Science: Earth & Space Science II. They complement three previously released science courses for grades Kindergarten to Grade 2 and in combination represent a comprehensive digital curriculum solution for elementary science education. Core Learning’s composite offering of science courses and assessments is called Core Science: Elementary Curriculum.

“We have now published six science courses aligned to the learning objectives in the Common Core Science Framework for elementary school students in grades Kindergarten to Grade 5. In fact, since the Framework’s learning objectives are so progressed from existing curriculum, our Core Science: Elementary Curriculum is of current value to middle school students as well”, said Doug Hatch, President & CEO of Core Learning. “Not only do the course lessons and assessments develop important foundational science knowledge, but they also develop awareness of the role science plays in our environment and our lives. I believe this will significantly broaden student interest in science or technology-based careers and that can only be of great benefit to the development of a modern economy based on knowledge and skills.”
