Learning Objective

Students will connect everyday experiences to science concepts through illustrations and writing.


Students will love sharing their summer experiences with this fun back to school science activity. They will illustrate a fun summer experience using an Instagram template and then write a paragraph connecting their experience to science. Being able to communicate in writing is an important skill; use this activity to integrate science and writing in a fun, high-interest way.

This is the perfect resource for the first few days of school when you need time to complete administrative tasks, organize supplies, or make space for new students.

Use the finished activities for your first display of student work!
