It can be difficult to find supplementary resources to meet the needs of the students in your classroom who need a challenge. StarrMatica’s library is packed with content that can help encourage those students to grow in their thinking. Here are a few examples:
Engage your students in the scientific process

Plant Growth Experiment View the results of an experiment to test whether water, light, and temperature affect whether seeds grow. Then answer questions about what you have discovered.
Ask your students to make critical decisions in the shoes of a historical figure
