How It Works

Research indicates that the more frequently manipulatives are incorporated into instruction, the more students are actively involved, and the better the results. Creating an active classroom where students are at the center of learning is essential to student success. Whether you're looking for a desktop reference for hands-on, conceptual lessons that you can use to avoid just saying things slower and louder, or if you're looking for hands-on, replacement curriculum, Hands-On Standards can fit your needs.

  1. Select lesson based on objectives, standards, or student needs.
  2. Set the stage using discussion prompts to explore previously learned concepts while building vocabulary.
  3. Engage students with problem solving through hands-on, concept based lessons.
  4. Reinforce concepts with follow-up skill-practice.
