Experiments ! Math fun! Food chains! And flipables, foldables, gardening, web quests, and the science goes on and on. This makes you the coolest teacher ever! Kids love inquiry based learning and there are over 70 pages full of hands on inquiry that engages and promotes learning in this complete, interactive science unit of inquiry. I created this for our IB PYP theme of Sharing the Planet, with our central idea of:
Living things are interdependent with predictable cycles and patterns.
Lines of inquiry:
How are ocean animals connected to one another?
How does the ocean biome sustain the cycle of life?
What happens if the pattern is broken or interrupted?
What role do humans play in the cycle of ocean life?
You will find:
Interactive notebook activities,
Science experiments that involve hands and eyes and hypothesising.
Task cards for math, literacy and science
Non fiction literacy articles for reading and writing.
Collaborative group work tasks
Formative assessments and homework
Interactive web sites
Links to cool videos.
And much more besides.
Designed for my 4th graders, this unit can be used with 3rd -6th grade.
