Effectively scaffold learning experiences to respond to each child’s current strengths and needs with embedded guidance and strategies located on curricular resources.
Inspire Children With Project-Based, Investigative Learning
Build children’s confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills through hands-on, project-based investigations.
