PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

{UPDATED FOR THE 2013-2014 SCHOOL YEAR!}

Sometimes it feels that no matter how well I try to organize lessons, units, and long range plans, there never appears to be enough hours in the school day to cover all the curriculum expectations! One of the best strategies that I have learned as a teacher is to take a cross-curricular approach when planning activities, lessons, and units. A great way to cover many English Language Arts expectations is by integrating writing into the content areas; in this case, journal writing can be integrated into the science classroom.

We've created a student science journal with 52 prompts to help you integrate writing in your science classes. The journal prompts are organized by week, so the entire 2013-2014 academic year is already planned out for you! Each journal is labeled with the corresponding week of the year, provides a prompt and space for student responses. You can either photocopy the entire bundle for your students at the beginning of the year and work through it each week or photocopy individual weeks as you progress through the year!

The writing prompts alternate between historical events, creative responses, opinion pieces, persuasive arguments, national awareness themes, and science process skills. A blank journal page is included for you to add your own ideas as needed.
