This is a comprehensive science unit that is aligned with Ohio's New Learning Standards.
It covers all Physical Science standards for Motion and Materials, including: properties of objects and materials can change, and objects can be moved in a variety of ways, such as straight, zigzag, circular and back and forth. Expectations for learning include: The position of an object can be described by locating it relative to another object or to the object’s surroundings; an object is in motion when its position is changing; the motion of an object can be affected by pushing or pulling; and a push or pull is a force that can make an object move faster, slower or go in a different direction.
It is broken down into 2 units, each unit has scripted plans that last 10 days. The day by day plan is expressly written so that it could even be printed and left with a substitute teacher!
The units incorporate collaboration, creativity, communication and critical thinking. All necessary resources are included in this packet.
***If you would like to purchase the units for all of the Science Standards, they are available in a bundle at a discounted price!***
