Curriculum Lab

The curriculum lab is designed to meet instructional program needs by providing hundreds of quality supplemental materials for grades K-8. New materials and ideas are constantly added to the extensive retrieval files.  In addition, as a parent or teacher, you will find extensive retrieval files containing materials that include units in all areas of study, classroom management ideas, manipulatives, arts and crafts ideas, seasonal ideas, suggestions for the classroom environment, and much more. Samples for many of the teaching aids are on display to assist with your selection. The curriculum lab is available to the administrators, teachers, staff, and volunteers of the Huntington Beach City School District.
