Science NetLinks provides standards-based lesson plans, intended for all grade levels (K-12) and relevant to a wide variety of science topics, that incorporate reviewed internet resources. These lessons, organized by grade level and benchmark, are tied to at least one learning goal and use research-based instructional strategies that support student learning. They are also aligned with Benchmarks for Science Literacy, a set of science literacy goals developed by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Project 2061. Student-ready materials such as student sheets (student reproducibles) or E-Sheets (online worksheets that enable students to engage directly in internet activities) are provided. Other materials include a set of tools (interactive features for engaging students); a directory of the reviewed internet resources organized by grade level and benchmarks; and an index of benchmarks. Science NetLinks is part of Thinkfinity, a partnership between the Verizon Foundation and educational organizations including the AAAS, the National Geographic Society, and The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
