Kendall Hunt Publishing

OpenSciEd Middle Grades Science Program

OpenSciEd was launched to improve the supply of and address the demand for high-quality, open-source, full course science instructional materials.  The goals of OpenSciEd are to ensure any science teacher, anywhere, can access and download freely available, high quality, locally adaptable materials.  Though the goal of providing full course materials is still a couple of years away, OpenSciEd is releasing six-week units of instruction as they are completed and externally evaluated as quality by Achieve’s Science Peer Review Panel.

OpenSciEd classroom materials are an open education resource and therefore free to download, copy, use, and/or modify.  You can download the instructional materials free of charge at Access Materials page on the OpenSciEd website.

In an effort to lower barriers for all educators to use OpenSciEd, Kendall Hunt and OpenSciEd have partnered to sell high quality printed books at an extremely attractive price.

For content-related questions, please contact OpenSciEd at info@openscied.org.

In light of the unprecedented school closures and shelter-in-place orders brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to adjust our unit development and public release schedule
