This is an excerpt from Amazon's popular line of Bossy Brocci Math and Big Science workbooks! [it's pronounced like "Brawsee"]
Printing should be done in Landscape and DOUBLE-SIDED, with the flip being along the 'SHORT' side.

Most ELA, Math and Science teachers don't have more than 100
State Tests on their shoulders - and they enjoy anywhere from 60 to
90 minutes to teach their class. But I've been whipping the
State while teaching an average of 110 students per year - and
with only about 38 minutes for science class!
It's a matter of public record:
I've crushed the State by 17 to 32 points, and by an average
of 23 points over a 5-year stretch.
And I'm North Carolina's 2016 Top-Scoring Science Teacher.
I've done it with:
No Teaching Assistants,
No Remediation Class,
and No Test-Prep books or programs.
So what are my kids learning, doing and using?
Bossy Brocci worksheets.
1) Calculate, Draw and Analyze a Vertical Bar Graph comparing Change in Temperature (delta T) versus Specific Heat Capacity of Water and 18 other substances:
[Note: Specific Heats are provided with each substance along the x-axis; students calculate the Change in Temperature (delta T) along the y-axis using the formula provided at the top of the chart]
2) Record in a Data Pattern the Specific Heat Capacities for:
Wet Soil (given)
Live Wood (given)
Live Grass (given)
3) Complete a pre-scaled & pre-labeled paired (Dry & Wet) Vertical Bar graph for the Specific Heat Capacities of:
4) Answer 39 Fill-in-the-Blank and Multiple-choice questions based on their Calculations and Observations in the preceding Graphs/Charts and Data Table
5) Use a Data Table on the Specific Heat Capacity of common building materials to Answer 2 Fill-in-the-Blank questions
6) Use the Equation Delta T = Q/(m x c) to answer 4 Multiple-choice questions
7) Use a Data Table on the Specific Heat Capacity of 6 metals and the Equation Delta T = Q/(m x c) to answer 2 Fill-in-the-blank questions
8) Calculate and record Specific Heat Capacity x Density (c x D) in a Data Pattern Table for Gold, Platinum, Silver, Copper, Iron and Aluminum
9) Use that Data Pattern Table and the Equation: Delta T = Q/(cD x V) [where V is volume] to Answer 3 Fill-in-the-Blank and Multiple-choice questions
10) Draw a total of 22 vertical Bar graphs
11) Fill-in a total of 9 cells in two different Data Pattern Tables
12) Answer a total of 50 Fill-in-the-blank and Multiple-choice questions
13) Discover that Water has a remarkably High Specific Heat Capacity - and that this has important and essential consequences for life
14) Discover the relationship between Heat (Q), Mass (m) Specific Heat (c) and Change in Temperature (Delta T)
15) Be compelled to present their work in a neat & orderly format
16) Be trained to define & manipulate Specific Heat methodically & systematically
