Experiments galore! This makes you the coolest teacher ever! Kids love inquiry based learning and there are over 50 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.
You will find:
Interactive notebook activities, 18 in all.
Science experiments for photosynthesis, seed dispersal and more
Task cards for math, literacy and science
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.
