* Lessons are laid out as stepping stones that build knowledge and understanding logically and systematically.


* Child-centered, hands-on activities at the core of all lessons bring children to observe, think, and reason.


* Interest is maintained and learning is solidified by constantly connecting lessons with children's real-world experience


* Skills of inquiry become habits of mind as they are used throughout.


* Lessons integrate reading, writing, geography, and other subjects.


* Standards, including developing a broader, supportive community of science learners come about as natural by-products of learning science in an organized way.
