Rest Stop: Suppliers & Distributors


Unless otherwise noted, these companies do not publish any of their own materials or actually produce curriculum and educational products. Instead, they merely sell resources from a wide variety of other outlets, serving as suppliers/distributors. As such, they have not been queried in regard to the Common Core Standards/Next Generation Science Standards/College, Career and Civic Life Framework (CCS/NGSS/C3). And to our knowledge, they all sell a wide variety of materials – whether independent, correlated, with ancillary connections, or explicitly aligned – without regard to any resource's CCS/NGSS/C3 status.

We provide this list as a helpful resource for those seeking suppliers beyond the publishers themselves and by way of noting why these entities have not been included on any of the other lists. For the few companies that do produce their own materials in addition to serving as distributors, we've also included their product lines on the appropriate CCS/NGSS/C3 alignment lists.

This list is generally mobile-friendly, but the third column may appear to be cut off on some devices. If this happens, simply turn the device sideways (i.e., to landscape position) to see everything in all three columns.

Nelson serves as a distributor for products from several other companies, many of which are aligned with the CCS.

But in regards to its own materials, Nelson was contacted multiple times over the course of several months and did not respond to any query. I cannot speculate as to why it has chosen not to reply, and I have no discernible way of knowing its position on the CCS/NGSS/C3.

Toysmith produces its own toys and also serves as a distributor for others. In regards to its own products, it is wholly independent of the CCS/NGSS/C3. Regarding those for which it distributes, a Toysmith reprepsentative notes that “[we] don’t think any of these companies is manufacturing towards an educational market or creating product for a particular curriculum. If they were, you would have already noticed. No one creates product...specific [to CCS/NGSS/C3] without telling anyone about it.”
