This purchase is for a DAILY SCIENCE informational article which is ideal for science or language arts classrooms. These articles provide a perfect, and short, article that showcases a wide selection of science themes.
Each article and assignment should take 5-10 minutes (depending on grade and student reading ability) which makes them ideal for classroom warm-ups / bell ringers, extra credit, or time filler work for early finishers. I often use the articles for inclusion during exams or tests where a short informational reading passage helps prepare students for state testing reading selections. I have also included an author purpose chart which can help strengthen student ability to identify in each paragraph and find evidence to support whether the author is writing to: inform, describe, explain, or persuade.
This daily science article focuses on a science experiment where data revealed that dogs had a 97% success rate at sniffing lung cancer in human samples. A perfect addition for any language arts, health, or science classroom.
Included with this purchase:
1 – DAILY SCIENCE ARTICLE
2 – QUESTION SHEET
3 – ENLARGED ARTICLE (perfect for warm-up display on Smartboard or whiteboard)
4 – ANSWER KEY

DOC & PDF Versions! The worksheet is given as a MS-Word document (DOC) which will allow easy modifying to fit your class. A PDF version is also provided for ease of use/printing.
