Students are challenged to think creatively and critically throughout the program. Decision-making, communication and collaborative learning activities expand their knowledge. These skills turn science into action and give them the knowledge to become an informed and action-oriented member of society.
To aid with critical thinking development skills, below are additional resources teachers can utilize to assist the Mighty Acorns curriculum.
