In June, 2011, a team of Carpinteria and Santa Barbara Teacher Leaders from Science Matters, working in conjunction with expert science curriculum consultants from the K-12 Alliance at WestEd, completed Unit I of a series of standards-based instructional units for Grades 4, 5, and 6 in Earth, Life and Physical Science. Unit II was completed in May of 2012, and Unit III will be completed in April of 2013. These units are aligned with content learned in the Science Matters Institutes, and are designed to increase the effectiveness of science instruction - using any adopted curricula and other resources available to teachers.
