There are 3 main activities: Read.Connect.Create.


Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use them as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.


Have students read the passages about light and sound and complete the graphic organizers for each concept. Each passage has comprehension questions and scenes for students to connect to the information. Have students complete the comprehension and connection questions, label the parts of the human eye and ear, mystery flaps, and cloze passages. Students could work with a partner, in small groups, to rotate to each center or station to complete the activities.


Have students complete the Flip Booklet. Students can build the flip book page by page. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the flip-up. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip-up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.
