Small Group Learning

Small Group Learning kits from Innovating Science

These kits cross different curriculums and are designed for smaller class settings, distance learning, after school programs and home schools. Most kits are designed for 5 groups and include a teacher’s manual and student guide to complete the lab. These kits provide the same results as our larger traditional classroom kits but allow for situations where a smaller group is desired.
