     In the Animals Two by Two Module students observe and care for one animal over time, and then they are introduced to another animal similar to the first but with differences in structure and behavior. The firsthand experiences are enriched with close-up photos of animals, some related to animals that students have observed in class and some animals that are new.  Animals Two by Two Life Science Assessment Overview
    In the Trees Module the systematic investigation of trees over the seasons will bring students to a better understanding of trees’ place at school and in the community. Students will observe changes in weather day to day, over the year, and the impact weather has on living things. Students will have some solid experiences to help them know plants and their place on Earth. Trees  Earth Science Assessment Overview
    In the Wood and Paper Module students are introduced to a wide variety of woods and papers in a systematic way. They observe the properties of these materials and discover what happens when they subject them to a number of tests and interactions with other materials. The concept of trees as natural resources is introduced, and students become aware of the need to conserve and reuse natural resources. Wood & Paper Physical Science Assessment Overview
