The Creative Curriculum® for Kindergarten

When children investigate, discover, and play — they learn.

With The Creative Curriculum® for Kindergarten, teachers now have a research-based, whole-child-focused approach to project-based learning in the kindergarten classroom.

Through in-depth investigations of science and social studies topics that integrate literacy and mathematics concepts, kindergarten teachers can encourage children to think critically, solve problems, and connect ideas.

The Creative Curriculum® for Kindergarten includes Teaching Guides and other daily practice resources to help kindergarten teachers use studies, which are project-based investigations of science and social studies topics, as the core of their day. It provides teachers with opportunities to integrate their existing math and literacy curriculum requirements throughout the various parts of their day.

This curriculum solution enables kindergarten teachers to engage students in deep levels of critical thinking by asking in-depth questions, introducing more technical vocabulary, and challenging students to investigate on their own and with others.
