Publisher Description:

Any curriculum based on the NGSS must integrate the Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas (the Three Dimensions of Learning) throughout all lessons. HMH Science Dimensions intertwines the Three Dimensions into a cohesive, braided approach that ensures students will increase science proficiency.

Lesson Structure: the 5E Model

HMH Science Dimensions consists of units containing closely related lessons. Each lesson is built around the familiar 5E instructional model, endorsed by NGSS thought leaders.

Engage: Every lesson starts with an Engage opportunity that asks: Can You Explain It? Or Can You Solve It? The Engage section involves a phenomenon to explain, a problem to solve, or a discrepant event to spark students curiosity. As students state claims, they begin to analyze their assumptions and ideas, preparing for the learning experiences that follow.

Explore & Explain: In the next phases of the 5E model, a series of related Explore & Explain activities are organized as Explorations. During these activities, learners embark on a discovery process of gathering evidence to either support or challenge their claims through:

  • Activities

  • Data analysis

  • Interactive illustrations

  • Videos

  • Instructional animations

Throughout the lesson, students are prompted to record their evidence using Evidence Notebooks where appropriate. Student-directed formative assessments embedded in the lesson help students assess the evidence they gather. They also share their evidence with peers and collaborate on the activities.

Elaborate: To promote interest in science and prepare students for college and careers in engineering and science, weve added a Take It Further feature to EVERY lesson. These features related science to students own lives and futures, inspiring their interest in STEM.

Evaluate: Lesson Self-Check and Formative Assessment


Items listed in this section tend to be complete science programs with a teacher and student component, requiring few supplements besides science supplies.

I think this will keep your child on par with other students nationally. Some of the projects need to be adapted, but it includes assessment and hands-on learning opportunities. A lot of questions require writing by the student. It does require more one-on-one time with your child. I wish it included a hand-held teacher manual. It only includes the Assessment Book with answer key. I purchased a hand-held teacher manual second hand from Amazon. I like this curriculum, but wish it were easier to use at home.
