Experiments galore! And flipables, foldables, gardening and group work, webquests, neighbourhood nature walks, and the science goes on and on. This makes you the coolest teacher ever! Kids love inquiry based learning and there are over 90 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 adapt in a variety of ways for life in their environment.
Lines of Inquiry:
>How and why living things are classified (function)
>Impact of adaptations on survival (causation)
>How human’s actions play a role (responsibility)
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 and cool learning videos
And much more besides.
Designed for my 4th graders, this unit can be used with 3rd -6th grade.
