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!

For additional help, and a video on how to use these materials, check out our help page.
