Today, science and social studies materials are designed almost exclusively for students who can read, write and speak. Many students have deficits in one or more of these areas, making it challenging and for some, impossible to access the general education content that their same age peers do. Interesting subjects like astronomy and human anatomy are not available if you can’t read, write and communicate at or close to grade level. That’s why we created Curriculum Companions. Curriculum Companions are designed to provide richly illustrated content that is supported by multimedia to ensure active participation and understanding of academic concepts without the perquisite that you have to be a reader, writer or verbal communicator to engage.
Our new Boardmaker® Activities: Curriculum Companions feature a more vibrant design, and now, they stand alone so that you no longer need a Boardmaker® Software Family authoring software (like Boardmaker® Plus!, Boardmaker® with Speaking Dynamically Pro and Boardmaker® Player) to use them!
Curriculum Companion Series 1 - Exploring includes the following titles:
Exploring Our Solar System - With Exploring Our Solar System, a Boardmaker® Activity: Curriculum Companion, kids get big questions about space answered! Take a tour through the reading, writing and learning opportunities inherent in this important supplement to your space curriculum.
