Gizmos Correlations Show How Online Simulations Support Science A-Z Units

Gizmos are captivating online simulations of key science concepts produced by ExploreLearning. Each Gizmo enhances student comprehension of challenging concepts through inquiry and exploration. Students manipulate variables, observe the virtual results, and draw conclusions.

Correlation tables below show how Gizmos for grades 3 and above can be used in conjunction with Science A-Z units. Cross-reference the science domains of Life, Earth and Space, Physical, and Process Science and grade levels to identify Gizmos that complement the science content, literacy materials, and hands-on activities offered on Science A-Z.
