My principal wants me to implement centers this week...and this has taken SO MUCH stress off of my shoulders - this will be amazing in my 4th grade classroom (and I can use the templates not just for science, but for all subjects!).

Thanks so much for this wonderful product!

Was looking for something to use as a daily centers activity and found this :) Love it!! It fits in perfectly with our Science Notebooking. Everything I've gotten from "The Science Penguin" so far has been colorful, accurate, and easy to set up in my classroom. The Ultimate Science Weekly 5 is on my wish list for payday!!

Hi, I downloaded the package but can not open it as an owner password is required to give permission to save the document. Is this your owner password?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 25, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
This issue usually has to do with an Adobe Reader update.

I'm excited about using the weekly five in my classroom this year, but I'd like to rotate in some different stations for my 6th graders. Could you email me a blank template with the same background?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 30, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
Hi kj. I hope you love it. However, due to copyright on graphics, etc i cannot give out blank templates. The frames I have on the pages are from a TpT seller named Graphics From the Pond if you're interested in making them.
On  June 27, 2013TLaBoy (TpT Seller) asked:
Are you implementing the individual units into your weekly 5 during the same week that you are teaching/introducing a concept, or is it after the concept has been taught for review/practice? I like the idea of using these as a daily warm up activity to reinforce concepts, but I worry about how my struggling and ESL students will hold up with unfamiliar concepts and vocabulary; especially on the first day of a new unit!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 27, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
It depends on what you and your students are comfortable with. I prefer using them to reinforce concepts after the material has been introduced. :)

I teach second grade. Our next unit in Science is Earth's Resources. Do you have a unit for that?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 17, 2012The Science Penguin answered:
The unit I have on natural resources may be above second grade for your state standards. It addresses the types of resources, alternative energy, and fossil fuels. That is the only product I have on this topic. Good luck!
n/a
On  August 16, 2012,  Buyer asked:
These are wonderful resources! I have purchased all of your Earth science units and cannot wait to implement them this year! Do you have plans for any other Earth science units? I teach 6th grade in Georgia, and it is strictly Earth science.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 16, 2012The Science Penguin answered:
I don't have immediate plans for any other Earth Science units at the moment other than water cycle. I am working on some life science and physical science units right now. What topics do you teach for 6th in Georgia? You can email me at thesciencepenguin@yahoo.com. Thanks!

On  July 31, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Do you think your science weekly five would work well for 2nd graders? I noticed the lowest grade level is 3rd. From the previews I have seen, it doesn't look too difficult for 2nd graders. What is your opinion? Thanks :)
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 31, 2012The Science Penguin answered:
Some of the units may be a little above the curriculum requirements for 2nd, but as we know, it really depends on your students. If what appears in the preview looks appropriate for your kiddos, then definitely try it out! :)
n/a
On  July 23, 2012,  HEATHER H. asked:
I was wondering if you offered anything where the students practice using/manipulating measurement tools such as a metric ruler, balance scale, beaker, as well as having to follow written directions. I'm looking for something to prepare my students for the manipulative part of our state science test in May. I was hoping to have them practice measurement skills throughout the year
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 23, 2012The Science Penguin answered:
Check out the Introduction to Science Stations. The 8 stations focus on mass, temperature, volume, time, hand lens, length, classifying, and safety. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Introduction-to-Science-Stations
n/a
On  July 19, 2012,  Sarah P. asked:
I see life science vocabulary and earth science vocabulary. How do you use the vocabulary along with the Weekly 5? Also, does the life science vocabulary go along with all the topics covered under life science (food webs, adaptations, etc.)? Earth science, too?? Love your products!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 19, 2012The Science Penguin answered:
They are separate things. I have used them for review in the past but you can also use them throughout to reinforce vocab.
The life and earth science vocab packets focus on what I feel are the most important words in each area.
On  July 4, 2012Tammy Williams (TpT Seller) asked:
OMG I LOVE the Weekly 5 center structure! I'm a bit overwhelmed with the thought of trying to implement this! Students get 15 min. per station per day or 15 min. for 1 station that day and 15 min. for another on the next? Do you have any lessons for Physical Science?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 6, 2012The Science Penguin answered:
The way I set it up is they do one station per day for 15 minutes. So, during the week they complete all 5 stations. If you want to do more stations per day, that works well too. It just generally takes 15 minutes for each one.
I am going to release some physical science units before school for matter and force and motion. I have one available in my store for light and sound energy. Let me know if you have more questions and I hope this helps.
