BACK TO SCHOOL SCIENCE BUNDLE!!!
BEGINNING OF YEAR
This is a 166 PPT for starting off your science class. This is a great introduction to middle school science. I use this PPT unit in the beginning of the school year to get students excited about Science class. The purpose is for the students to gain a brief understanding to what science is, the purpose of science, types of scientists, the scientific method, scientific models, difference between theories and laws and just to get excited about Science. I want my students to understand that science is in everything we do and to know they have all of the potential in the world to become a scientist themselves one day.
I use this in my sixth grade class, but this would work just as well in 5th and 7th grade. This could be used in 4th grade too with possible modifications.
Included in this PPT are:
-Print off of Unit Plans written in EATS format.
-Pre-test and Pre-test answer key.
-2 Vocab quizzes and answer key
-Guided Notes that go along with PPT
-2 Mini Labs to be used in classroom with limited supplies
-Scientist Project : handout for planning and rubric for project
-PowerPoint teaching introducing what science is, the purpose of science, who a scientist is, the scientific method, scientific models and the difference between a hypothesis, theory and law! The PPT includes journal prompts for each lesson. Things that I require my students to write in their notes are in red.
