While training for the Push, Pull, Go Kindergarten science unit, participants will:
- Develop an understanding of the unit’s storyline, instructional model, and standards alignment.
- Manage the kit materials and digital resources to foster student mastery of the practices, cross-cutting concepts, and core ideas embedded in the unit’s storyline.
- Identify and understand the role of various assessments and rubrics in the unit’s lessons.
- Identify an example of a STEM-related career in the unit materials to share with students. Motion and force are observable every day, but students may not be aware of different types of motion and the forces that cause them.
In Push, Pull, Go students explore this important relationship through inquiry, discussion, engineering, and problem solving. Students also practice using descriptive words, building structures, measuring distance, making predictions, and identifying systems. Throughout a series of five lessons, students manipulate models to learn about motion and draw conclusions about force, energy, gravity, and friction.
