PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you want to make your Science lessons come to life? Then this is the packet for you. This unit includes hands-on experiments that you can use in your classroom for each area of science: Earth Science, Life Science, and Physical Science.

In this bundle you get my Making Predictions pack, my Earth Science pack, Life Science pack, and Force and Motion pack. Once I finish the rest of my Physical Science pack, I will include that!

Making Predictions:
You can view the preview by clicking here

First graders are expected to make "good" predictions. In the beginning of the year, this is a skill that is difficult for them. However, through practice and hands-on activities such as these, students can make predictions, write out predictions, and also write about the outcomes of experiments. These are all skills that our first graders are expected to be able to do by the end of the year.

This packet is different from most that you buy on TpT. Instead of giving you centers and activities to print, cut out, and laminate, this packet is full of hands-on activities that you can use with your students. I completed all of these in my first grade class and my students LOVED them. Not to mention, the parents were so excited that we did “so much Science!”

The packet is broken down by picture steps (to help you see what the experiment should look like,) and then I give you a “cheat sheet.” This black and white copy is for you to print out and have on hand when you are completing the experiment in your class.

I also include “grocery lists” for all of the activities. {How much do I hate when I get home and realize I forgot ONE item!!}

It also includes graphing activities, recording sheets, anchor chart ideas, and more!

Experiments Include:

Mini Explosions
Discovery Bottles
Walking Water
Fireworks In a Cup
Gak
Coke and Mentos
The Milk Experiment

This unit is aligned to the Science TEKS. It is not aligned to the Common Core because at this point there are not any Science standards for first grade.

Earth Science:

This unit includes over 28 hands-on activities that you could use while studying Earth Science in your classroom. (This includes but is not limited to: Landforms, The Moon, Space, Planets, Rocks, Weather, Dinosaurs etc.)

Force and Motion (Physical Science)
This preview is included in this listing but you can also click here to see it.

This mini unit includes everything you need to teach your students about force and motion.

The packet includes six 5-E lesson plans for each of these essential questions:

How do things move?
What is speed?
What is gravity?
What is a ramp?
What is a magnet?
What is magnetic?

Each lesson includes multiple real life picture cards that you can project in your classroom using technology or that you can print out to generate a discussion at the beginning of your lesson. The pictures include topics and questions for your students to discuss.This will help build schema and get your students thinking about the essential questions. Each lesson also includes activities (experiments), extension ideas, and a list of the materials that you will need to gather before each lesson.

The science activities and experiments will let your students explore each concept in a hands-on format.

Each activity comes with multiple recording sheets, science notebook components and ways to evaluate your students.

I truly hope that you enjoy this pack and that you have FUN with these experiments, crafts, and activities!
