With the help of CK12.org and their fabulous staff, I was able to create a Florida Edition Elementary Science textbooks for grades 3 - 5.
Using CK12's existing middle grades textbooks as a framework, I modified by providing additional support for concepts, aligned the content with our current Florida Standards (NGSSS) and reduced the readability for our students.
Here are some free OER items that you may find useful.
Over the past few years, the writers at Candlelight Sciece have worked on a host of projects all aimed at helping teachers. Below are just of few of those projects along with some important work by others.
