Changes are constantly occurring in life. The increase of technology and the needs of mankind continuously force change. The Changes curriculum asks students three main questions: Can people control changes? Can using past information help you predict change? and Are changes positive or negative? The books in Prufrock's new Differentiated Curriculum Kits employ a differentiated, integrated curriculum based on broad themes. This all-in-one curriculum helps teachers save planning time, ensure compliance with national standards, and most importantly, pique their students' natural excitement and interest in discovery. By participating in the wide variety of activities in the Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grade 2, students will discover the changes around them and gain a lifelong desire to learn.
