PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Force and Motion Racecar Derby End of Year Science and Literacy Lesson Set (STAAR)

Having active and engaging lessons for students at the end of the year is crucial to classroom behavior that last month of school.

STEM activities are great for keeping student minds busy during that time of the year when they seem to just want to play. So let’s play with science!

The reading with key terms will be interesting to the students because it gives them the background information needed to build their racecar.

Teaching Time Frame Idea:
In my experience, I have made a challenge each week for the groups to test. Three weeks of lesson plans are provided for this unit.

The informational text in this set is written to best fit the 5th and 6th grade reading levels. This lesson set is designed to be on level for 5th grade and covers standards from 5th, 7th, and 8th grade science. This is a helpful resource for ESL and low level eighth graders.

Included in this lesson set:

(3) Readings: Informational Text with Key Terms

(3) Writing Summaries with Key Terms

Graphic Organizer: Science and Racecars with a fill-in- the-blank graphic

Critical Thinking: Improving Hybrid Car Designs

Critical Thinking: Planing and Constructing Trick Paper Airplanes

(3) Lab/ Activities: Racecar Derby with Lab planning, constructing, and conclusion sheets (Three different races, one race per week)
