  • “I started using this in my 4th grade classroom and the students absolutely love the DIY projects and the videos. I love the fact that they have the new NGSS science standards integrated into all the lessons. Generation Genius has all the lesson plans, instructions, and wonderful, thought provoking questions that really make the kids think. There is a set of vocabulary words so that you can front load your teaching before they even get started. I would recommend Generation Genius to any and all teachers! Thank you for providing such an enriching curriculum that my students love.”
