PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Bubbles! is an inquiry based science unit for first grade covering the "Practice of Science" focused around hands on experiments, informational/non-fiction reading and writing (aligned to Common Core standard).

My students adored these lessons! They constantly asked if we were doing "bubble stuff". The experiments, reading and writing are wonderfully engaging through inquiry, questioning, observations and discussions.

The Practice of Science teaches students to question the natural world, make observations, record and analyze data. The students will create and answer questions while reading non-fiction books, conducting experiments, making observations, recording data and analyzing observations and data. The unit includes:

* 7 lessons plans including informational reading, 4 experiments with informational, expository and opinion writing tasks and printable recording sheets

* Craft for bulletin board display

*Pre- and Post-Assessments

*Student Performance Task Rubric (Informational writing)

*Suggested Text Set

*Resources

*Materials list

*Word Wall Vocabulary Cards

Download a preview for a list of all the standards covered in the unit. Common Core Standards in Reading Informational Text, Writing and Speaking & Listening and Florida NGSSS in science are covered in the lessons. I identified the first grade standards, but most overlap to Kindergarten and second grade.

For more pictures and information go to my blog posts.

This was a great back to school unit and a great way to introduce the scientific method to my first graders. They were so excited when we made the homemade bubbles and they worked just as well as the store bought.
On  September 13, 2013Miss 27 answered:
I am so glad you and your students enjoyed the Bubbles unit! I just did it with my new class and they loved it, too. I think it is a great way to get students excited about science. Have a great year!
