K-5 Science Curriculum Materials Field Testing

The Lansing School District conducted field tests and analyses from October 2001 through March 2002 of K-5 science curriculum materials for possible adoption.  This curriculum materials evaluation work was carried out by six grade-level field test study groups.  Each group was composed of approximately a dozen teachers, recruited from schools in each of the district's three areas (i.e., Eastern, Everett, and Sexton).
