Little Bits has eight activities which cover reading, social studies, math and science standards while teaching about sound vibrations, force, physical properties and well site safety. This hands-on curriculum makes it fun for students in grades kindergarten through second to learn basic concepts about well site safety, rock formations and the types of products made from petroleum in five activities.
Each class that completes the Little Bits curriculum will receive a free field trip from the OERB to one of nine participating museums. Students will see an exciting energy exhibit sponsored by the OERB or be treated to a free energy class at the museum.
Developed by Oklahoma elementary school educators, industry professionals and OERB representatives, the Little Bits curriculum provides everything a teacher needs, including a free teacher's guide and activity kit.
To acquire the Little Bits curriculum, teachers must attend a day-long workshop. The workshops are free, and educators receive a $50 stipend for attending. Educators completing the workshop receive five (5) Professional Development Hours.
