++This is an amazing way to use critical thinking to prepare your students for science benchmarks at the end of the year. We ended up reviewing everything we learned this year in the first two days of this project!
This download comes with a printable book and 5 lesson plans. This activity can go with Earth day or your end of the year Science review. It can be used at anytime in your writing workshop! It integrates science and informational and opinion writing. The best part is that it can easily be modified for many grade levels.
