Supplemental materials (not listed above)-
28 I Have/Who Has vocabulary game cards
Bell question sheet
Exit question cards
Calendar cards (2.5 inch square)

Each PowerPoint slide set starts with a bell question to activate learning and ends with an exit question to quickly assess students. Sheets for both of these are included. The slides correspond directly to the worksheets, and the information that needs to be written down is underlined on the slides. Slides are designed so that all the information does not appear at once and continues by clicking through the program at the appropriate pace. The answers for the reviews are included in the PowerPoint slides, and the labs have corresponding procedure slides.

Manipulative cards sets are intended to be printed as needed, laminated, and used for reinforcement. For example, the steps of the Scientific Method card sets can be used to put in order, and the Metric card sets can be used to match the unit and tool with the type of measurement. The questions you can ask (or your students can ask their peers) are endless.

Two sets of twenty-eight task cards are included to be set up as stations or centers where the students move through in order to reinforce concepts. This is also a great opportunity to use manipulative cards as additional centers.

I Have/Who Has cards are a fun way to quickly test the students’ vocabulary. Print, cut, and laminate the cards. Twenty-eight vocabulary words or phrases and their definitions have been selected from this curriculum. Pass out ALL the cards to your students, even if it means some of your students have two cards. Select a student to start the game by reading the “Who Has” (definition) portion of his or her card. The student with the corresponding “I Have” (term) portion responds and reads the “Who Has” on the same card. This continues until all 28 cards have been read and the student who started the game ends it. Timing the classes to see which one is the fastest is an enjoyable way to foster some good-natured competition.

While this curriculum is designed to be turn-key with minimal changes, please keep in mind that all schools are different regarding standards focus, class-period time, etc. If you have questions, concerns, or catch a typo (hopefully not!), please feel free to contact us at thescienceshoppe@gmail.com. Also, please take a moment to review this curriculum after use. We hope you find this useful in your classroom! Thank you!
