Videos by grade level

 

Welcome to Amplify Science! We are excited to share videos of our science lessons, filmed by actual classroom teachers from our partners in Denver Public Schools and Seattle Public Schools.

All of the videos below are self-guided, meaning your child or student can watch and do the work on their own. However, we do encourage siblings, family members, and others to watch as well and learn new things! Just click on your grade level below to see all available videos. There are no limits to what you can learn!

Unit overview: Students take on the role of scientists in order to figure out why there have been no monarch caterpillars in the community garden since vegetables were planted. They investigate how plants and animals get what they need to live and grow, and make a new plan for the community garden that provides for the needs of the monarch caterpillars in addition to producing vegetables for humans.
