Description

Are you using the 4th grade science TEKS? This product is for you!

Who is this for?

4th grade teachers, elementary principals, and elementary curriculum coordinators in Texas

What standards does this resource address?

This bundle has all of the Science Penguin materials that address the 4th grade Streamlined TEKS (revised in 2017, in use starting in 2018-2019).

What is the cost for multiple teachers?

Purchase 1 license for EACH TEACHER using the materials. The first license is at list price. All additional licenses are at a reduced cost. You can add licenses when you add the item to your cart.

Is there a guide to help with planning?

Yes! I am releasing free planning guides for each unit to help make planning a breeze. With the planning guides and this resource, you are set!

Unit 1 Planning Guide: Introduction to Science

Unit 2 Planning Guide: Matter and Mixtures

Unit 3 Planning Guide: Force and Motion

Unit 4 Planning Guide: Energy

Unit 5 Planning Guide: Natural Resources

Unit 6 Planning Guide: Changes to Earth's Surface

Unit 7 Planning Guide: Weather and Water

Unit 8 Planning Guide: Patterns in Space

Unit 9 Planning Guide: Life Science

Please Note: While there are some Science Penguin activities that might be used in 4th grade, they may not be included in this bundle so please look carefully at what is included. I am careful to make sure the same activities are not used in both 4th and 5th grade for teachers following my Planning Guides on the same campus. I think you will like what I have planned for 4th grade!

Do you need the 4th grade bundle AND the 5th grade bundle if you teach both grade levels?

While some resources are provided in both the 4th grade bundle and 5th grade bundle (e.g. All In One Notebook, Outdoor Science, Digital Inquiry, etc.), there are enough additional resources in each bundle to still save money by purchasing both bundles.

The 4th grade bundle includes these unique resources that are not in the 5th grade bundle: 4th Grade Slides & Notes, 4th Grade Assessments, Life Science Units, Digital Vocabulary Lessons, Picture Dictionary, Play Ball: Matter, Play Ball: Force, Build a Solar Oven, Texas Ecoregions, Clouds and Weather, Seasons Interactive Diagram, 4th Grade Review, Science Measurement Observation Stations, Science Weekly Five, and future 4th grade- specific items.

The 5th Grade bundle includes these unique resources that are not in the 4th grade bundle: 5th Grade Slides & Notes, 5th Grade Assessments, STAAR Test Prep Bundle, Physical Science Observation Stations, Life Science Observation Stations, iLearn Science, some Digital Inquiries, 5th Grade Spiral Review, Vocabulary Spiral Review Games, Big Science Stations Units, Picture Dictionary, and Small Group Science.

Product Notes:

1. Please purchase multiple licenses at a discounted price if this is for more than one teacher. Thank you!

2. This file is not editable.
