Looking to cover your science quickly and easily but no extra time? No problem! These are the units for you. These combined units will help cover your science quickly and easily in either a science class or in language to help make things easier. I have not included previews of each unit, however I have included the links to each individual unit for sale to give you a better idea of what you are getting. There is too much to list on one preview. Many of the Conservation activities can actually be used in grade 4 as well.
Please be aware that I am revising these units to make them more similar to my other science units. This means that you will get the updated copy when it is finished at no extra charge. You will get a notification from teachers pay teachers when it is complete and all you need to do is download the updated copy free!

This unit is designed to be self-taught unit. The sheets are written in such a way that students can complete the questions independently and with little teacher interaction. However lessons are included for teacher guidance with additional activities for every page in the Conservation Unit. PDF pages can easily be put onto Smart boards to review and understand concepts.

This inquiry-based unit, which meets the Ontario Ministry of Education Social Studies curriculum for Grade 5, provides a variety of activities meant to allow students to explore the concept of conservation of energy.
This unit is over 60 pages of task for students! It includes writing tasks, anchor charts as well as a culminating tasks and rubrics. This unit comes with absolutely everything you could use to run this science unit. I will be increasing the price once it is complete.

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.

This unit is an inquiry style rocks and minerals unit. It covers all expectations in the Ontario curriculum and also addresses many of the language expectations. I try to structure my units around language so that teachers can worry less about covering all the science expectations and more on getting kids to acquire the necessary reading skills for life and for standardized testing. This test prepares students for EQAO style questions. In addition I have included vocabulary wall cards with definitions so you can use it as part of your word activities, but also part of a bulletin board display.
The unit includes:
word work activities
compare and contrast articles
inferring questions
text features questions
themed art activity
writing activity
research and inquiry activity
presentation rubrics and so much more!

By no means are all the is so much more that you receive!
