Building Blocks of Science® Testimonials

"The lessons from the Push, Pull, Go Unit were very engaging for all students. My students were much more creative than I imagined. After building the slide, they built the swing within a couple of minutes. It was amazing how quickly they learned the basics. The lessons helped develop vocabulary which they used in their writing. I was surprised at the engineering solutions the students found. They were very creative in changing the slide to make the ball go faster. I shared the kit with other teachers and they had equal success. I sent the Family Project home over the holidays and was surprised at how many forms came back completed. As a teacher, I loved the rigorous questions."

"I feel my students have a better understanding of force and motion than in the past. They not only learned a lot, they had fun during the lessons from the Push, Pull, Go Unit and looked forward to doing them each day. I would definitely recommend this program to other kindergarten teachers. I feel it is a kit that is very well put together and allows the students to explore force and motion in a meaningful way. The engineering connections are age appropriate and allow the students to further investigate what they learn each day. I am excited to use more kits from Carolina."
