Developed in conjunction with Spanish experts and classroom teachers, Amplify Science provides multiple Spanish language components across our curriculum.
Spanish print kits
Districts that wish to have hard-copy materials in Spanish may choose to purchase the Spanish add-on kit for their units. The Spanish add-on kit contains translated versions of all student-facing materials for the unit, including student books, copymasters, print materials, assessments, and Investigation Notebooks.
Spanish Interactive Classroom
If your district uses Interactive Classroom, Spanish licenses that enable teachers and students to toggle back and forth between languages are available.
Spanish licenses are also available for teachers who are not using Interactive Classroom. The Spanish teacher license gives you access to a button that enables you to toggle back and forth between seeing Spanish and English in your Amplify Science account. When in Spanish mode, you can:
Download PDFs of all classroom wall materials, copymasters, assessments, and more
Use Spanish projections and download Spanish Classroom Slides
See all model teacher talk in Spanish (K–5), as well as translated step-by-step activity instructions and Science Background information (K–3 only; does not apply to activities that are unique to California)
Access digital versions of the student books in Spanish

If your school or district is interested in purchasing Spanish licenses or simply learning more about them, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spanish Classroom Slides
Classroom Slides, which are included in every lesson of the program, are also available in Spanish.
When teachers who have purchased the digital Spanish license toggle to Spanish in their digital Teacher’s Guide, they can download the Spanish Slides from the Lesson Brief.
One thing to note: when Sims and apps are depicted in the Slides, their labels will be in English. We plan to update these to be Spanish in the future.
All Modeling Tools, Science Practice Tools, and Simulations are accessible in Spanish. The Spanish apps are automatically available for all users who have the digital Spanish license. Like in the curriculum itself, Spanish content can be viewed using the toggle button that will appear in the app if the user has access to digital Spanish.
Note that the toggle may be in a different location for each app, depending on where the toolbar sits.
Spanish Read-Aloud: Student Books
Audio Read-Aloud is a helpful feature that allows users to play and control an audio recording of each student book in the Amplify Science K–5 program. The audio is available in both English and Spanish versions of the books, giving young students the opportunity for added support as they learn to read in either or both languages. Keep in mind, however, that you will need a Spanish license in order for you and your students to access the Spanish books.
