Overwhelmed Oliver

You want to do your best, but you sometimes feel like you're all over the place. 

You're constantly collecting resources, researching, and making materials.

You put off science because you feel overwhelmed and less confident. 

Hardworking Harold

You've recognized that other resources may help you teach more science. 

You see the benefits of being organized, but you aren't consistent.

You haven't found the right curriculum, so your lessons are a bit random. 

Up-and-Coming Ursula

The positivity motivates you to continue. It feels good to be acknowledged for your hard work. 

You're starting to get into a routine. 

You're goal is to teach a science lesson each week. 

Confident Charlie

You are rocking it! You feel a sense of relief with an incredible science curriculum.

You feel confident and have more energy for your family, friends and classroom.

You see the benefits of planning at least one week ahead.

Imagine if you could ...

  • know exactly what science lesson you are teaching next week without spending any time researching

  • save money and time because you already have presentation material

  • have more time to spend with family and friends or with other parts of your classroom. 

Backpack Sciences is a membership for upper elementary educators that will give you all this AND personalized support from the lesson plan creator and community.

Imagine This Is How Children Learn...


"Backpack Sciences’ lessons are a life saver. They provide clarity and a foundation to my science curriculum. This allows me to be free to authentically engage with my students rather than thinking ahead about “What am I going to do next?” They have also given me my weekends back. Thank you, Jackie, for giving me a breath of fresh air and confidence. "

3) Direct access to the creator of the lesson plans, and your question gets answered?

"Science is a subject I love, but I have zero skill in compiling lessons for my children. Jackie has a knack for making science fun, informative and interesting. I enjoyed the "Scientific Mindset" mini-course because it was easy to follow and apply. Jackie will always make sure to answer your questions. If you would like your children or students to love science, then I highly recommend Jackie."

Frequently Asked Questions

Each lesson plan will include printable presentation materials, photos to help visualize the lesson, a support video, a follow-up activity and ideas to further expand on the subject.

You will be given 3 lessons that follow the core content for a life science curriculum. The 4th lesson is science based but is considered an bonus lesson. If you fall behind a few months, I can assist you to get back on track. I'm here for you! 

If the written description, photos and videos don't answer or clarify your questions, send an email, and I'll answer the questions on Facebook Live. 

Honestly, where else can you get direct access to the creator of the lesson plan and ask for more help?! 

You'll be able to watch the recordings of the FB Lives at your convenience. If you've submitted a question, I'll email you to let you know the day I'm addressing it. You can also use the bonus search engine tool!

We use the only web-based platform that allows you to search through videos in seconds. The powerful search engine pinpoints keywords and brings you to the exact moment in the video. If I've mentioned the keywords several times in different videos, it will pull up the different videos.  

This is new technology, people! 

You know your child or students the best. The lesson plans are a guideline. You do not need to follow each step-by-step exactly. I've included higher level facts in a different color font.
