PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Save over 20% by purchasing this bundle!

Are you ready to try something new with your students? Science Weekly Five stations are versatile, easy to use, and aid in student learning. Teachers all over the country are already using these centers and love them!

*This book contains the Science Weekly Five Start-Up Kit AND all 17 units of 85 total stations to supplement your science curriculum. The stations stay the same each week. You simply trade out the materials.

Some stations require common items (a ball, sand, etc.) found in schools or at home. However, most stations have everything you need included! A Teacher Resource Page for each unit makes set-up a breeze.

Stations in each unit:
Station 1- Read and Comprehend (one-page, low fluency, high level concept reading passage with summarization graphic organizer and sentence stems for students to complete)
Station 2- Explore! (hands-on activity to create a model and diagram)
Station 3- Organize It! (using a graphic organizer or diagram to help students organize concepts in a visual way)
Station 4- Center Activity (activity to explore concept more in depth)
Station 5- Vocabulary (cut and paste matching of concept terms and definitions and a Vocabulary Four Square for one important term)

To learn more about each individual unit, check them out in my store. They each have a preview of what is included.

The 17 units are:
Physical Properties of Matter
Mixtures and Solutions
Force and Motion
Magnets
Light and Sound Energy
Electricity
Natural Resources
Landforms
Slow Changes to Earth's Surface
Rocks and Fossils
Our Solar System
Our Moon
Weather
Plants
Animal Adaptations and Survival
Food Webs
Life Cycles

Visit The Science Penguin to learn more about Science Weekly Five.

File Format: zip file of one PDF document containing the entire resource

**The 17 units included and the SW5 Start-Up Kit are all in my TpT Store. Please do not purchase this file AND the individual units from my store.**

I love this! I have several students that leave my science class for GT. I used Properties of Matter for the remaining students and they loved it! This resource will help solve the dilemma of not being able to 'teach' while GT is out of the room but still engage the remaining students.
On  September 22, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
That sounds like a great idea, Ashley!

Product Questions & Answers

On  February 5, 2014Lynsey Granger (TpT Seller) asked:
I am looking for a resource to help me with state testing prep for 5th grade science... I understand that this won't match exactly with my state's standards...but do you think this would be a good resource to use for review and prep (test covers 3-5 Science) Thanks for helping me think this through, I love your blog and your "stuff"!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 5, 2014The Science Penguin answered:
Hi Lynsey,

I'm sure this can help with a lot of your review of topics from 3-5. I see that you're in Florida. A lot of Florida teachers have told me that my products match pretty closely with the state standards. Thanks!

Ari
On  November 5, 2013Fourth Grade Fanatic (TpT Seller) asked:
I am concidering buying the ultimate science weekly five resource but I have a few questions before purchasing. Do your resources fit common core standards? How long do you run your stations?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 9, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
We don't currently have a Common Core for science, so you'd have to check with your state's standards or with the NGSS if you use those. I run these stations at about 15 minutes each with 5 stations in each unit.

On  November 3, 2013,  DEBRA B. asked:
OK I am a little confused. If I get the "The Ultimate Science Weekly Five Resource"( 33.00) and the "All in One Science Notebook Bundle" ( 26.00) will I have all of your science stuff? I have never used your science stuff before but this year science is my new personal goal.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 3, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
Hi teddy bears. Purchasing those two resources will get you about half of my science products. You will have everything for science notebooks and science stations. I also sell task cards, power points, and activities to spice up your units. Those are all sold separately. Good luck with your goal!

On  October 24, 2013Alison Hakseth (TpT Seller) asked:
I am trying to make sure I understand- if I purchase this bundle I should also (if I want it because it is not included?) purchase the Interactive Notebooking and More Interactive Notebook correct? And they go together? Is there anything else that I should/should not look at? I love your products and would like to use them but want to make sure I cover my bases as not everything aligns for me and will take some using different pieces for various levels. Thank you so much!

You should be able to print any page you want. This issue usually has to do with an Adobe Reader update.

Hello. I am interested in all 3 of the Weekly 5 bundles (Ultimate, Earth, & Physical) But do not want to have too many items in them overlap. Could you please offer me some advice? Thank you!!

I am also interested in your Interactive Notebook bundles. Do any of the materials in the Ultimate Interactive Notebook bundle overlap with the MORE Interactive Science Notebook Templates?

One more question, do you offer a "giant" bundle for all of these items?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 22, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
Hi Kristen,
The life, physical, and earth bundles do not overlap. The Ultimate Notebook materials are included in the life, physical, and earth bundles. MORE ISN Templates does not overlap with anything else. There is no giant bundle due to file size limitations. Thanks!

On  July 9, 2013Mosey Posey  (TpT Seller) asked:
I have bought a couple of these that fit my current state standards. We are moving the the National Science Standards in one year. I have a question about the literature- Is it a collection of knowledge and text summarized? I am wondering how the new packet with the great discount will fit my new state's needs. Also I see that the grades are 3-5. I find some of the units fit my current state standards for 2nd. is there a reason you limit it to 3-5? Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions.

On  July 9, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
Hi Mosey Posey!
The 3-5 recommendation is based on the state standards that I'm familiar with. I have used this for review and introducing new ideas depending on the grade level I'm working with and the students' background knowledge. The reading portion of the stations is an accessible text for most readers and is very concise.

I want to try science centers, but am not sure whether they would work in my situation. I teach science to all the students in my school, so I have about 300 students in grades 3, 4, and 5. I see each class for only 45 minutes a week. Do you think your centers would be manageable if you had 300 students, and only saw them for 45 minutes a week? How much time do you spend grading the work they do at these centers?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 8, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
45 minutes might now be enough time, but it could also possibly be the most efficient use of time. I don't take grades on anything where the students are still learning, so I don't *usually* grade them. I look at them in notebook checks and leave feedback. Sorry I can't be of too much help. You can maybe try doing centers once and see how it goes. Good luck.

On  June 25, 2013,  Buyer asked:
It appears that the resource comes in PDF only. Do you have a Word version so that I can modify to meet the needs of my classroom? I teach 5th and 6th grade, but they generally test two grade levels above their peers. I also want to modify directions so that students keep responses in their science notebooks rather than printing bundles of worksheets.

On  June 25, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
Hi, localshrink. Due to copyright, I only offer the file as a PDF. If your students test above a 5/6 grade level, this resource may be too low for your students.

If I buy your Ultimate Science Weekly Five Resources, should I also purchase the Science Vocabulary Posters and Quizzes? I have them both in my cart but as I was looking through the ultimate package, I saw that center 5 is vocabulary. What are the differences?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 19, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
I recommend having both. Center 5 is vocab matching and a vocabulary 4 square for one word. The vocab posters/ quizzes have half sheet posters for displaying vocabulary and then a matching quiz for each set of posters. Thanks for your question!

I'm a teacher in Texas and am moving up to 3rd grade from 2nd grade. Does this work for 3rd grade?

There are many 3rd grade teachers using this with their students. Some of the TEKS are geared more toward 4/5, so I suggest looking at each unit to make sure it is right for your students. Thank you!

I am trying to wrap my mind around the daily five science. I am not sure I understand how the students in stations 2-5 have the knowledge to do those activities. I can see how station 1 can use their information card, but the others won't know enough about the subject to do the lessons. I am not understanding something? Thanks Theresa Latham

On  March 30, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
The activities do require some direct teach before. They are great as a warm-up, way to end class, or a review. It is supplemental and not meant to stand alone. Thanks!

I absolutely love your daily 5 science....I teach second grade. How do you think that would work with my little guys and gals? Do you know any 2nd grade teachers using it I could contact?

On  March 30, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
Hi! While I don't necessarily recommend it for second grade, I have heard from a few second grade teachers who have used some of the topics. Since it's on here, I don't have contact info. I recommend looking at each unit preview to see if it would work for your kiddos. Thanks!
