This is a bundled unit of all of the grade 5 science units.
Currently included in this bundle is my fully revised and over 75 page long human body unit and my newly created and inquiry style structures unit.
All text is written at a grade 4 text level with plenty of interesting pictures for students to enjoy. In addition, questions are similar to EQAO style questions so students can complete them and also be prepping for standardized testing! Following each informational page there are questions and activities for student's to complete. In addition there are also several writing tasks for students such as an explanation and a recount. There are also included simple experiments and inquiry style projects, review games and lessons that can easily be left with a substitute.
Also included are illustrated word wall cards so students can review unfamiliar vocabulary terms, games to play with the vocabulary cards and a wax museum project or game as a culminating task (complete with rubric and research sheet). With over 75 pages there are more than enough to complete with students.
This is a comprehensive unit and it is 75 pages of information, black line masters, reading activities, and a very fun culminating project! It will integrate reading, writing, science, health and research skills. Students love this unit and teachers will love it for it's ease of use and ability to let students be independent with learning. I have updated the unit and added several more pages.
There is nothing you need to know about science or the human body before teaching this unit. All pages are ones that could be left for a supply teacher including instruction pages. At the end of the unit is an interactive activity that could be used for many other subjects with its own checklist to mark easily and quickly.
The Structure Unit:
The unit covers:
- Scientific Forces
- Natural Phenomenon
- How Structures react to both Natural Phenomenon and other forces
- Types of bridges
- Review Quiz/Worksheet
Language Concepts Covered through questions:
- Adventure Story Writing (checklists to mark included)
- Text Features (Including anchor charts and activities to teach this concept for the first time).
- Main Idea with an explanation of why
- Close Reading
- Explanation and Understanding of Science Vocabulary
- Multiple Choice Style answers
Furthermore, I have thrown in a section of Vocabulary cards that you can print, laminate and put up on a bulletin board to keep from year to year. They come with a brief explanation of the word. I have noted that this could take two months, however, you could easily complete these lessons within a couple of weeks if you used them for language and science.
This unit will come with worksheets and activities.
