Knowledge Builders

Amplify Education

What is the Knowledge Builders Program?

We are making 2-4 minute long animated videos that introduce Amplify’s CKLA lesson program. The videos are designed to get students excited about starting a new unit, and help students understand difficult content. This artwork is specifically designed for grades K-2. Each Knowledge Builder video we create includes an instructional guide for using the video and student activity pages.
