PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Seamlessly pair Science concepts with Reading and Writing standards for your grade level with Read About Science Mentor Texts!

I am a trade book over textbook kind of gal. So I rely heavily on picture books to help me teach Science standards. As a result, I have written a new series of elementary school resources called Read About Science!

In this resource, you will find ten activities to accompany the book Floating in Space by Franklyn M. Branley. This resource will help you introduce, reinforce, and extend the Physical Science concepts of: forces, motion, gravity, weight, & more - while your students also learn what it’s like to be an astronaut living on a space shuttle & working in outer space.

The included activities support CCSS in Reading & Writing of Informational Text & clear directions make them suitable for upper elementary students to complete in Science Centers, Science Stations, Literature Circles, or even Guided Reading Groups.

I have also included a Resource Usage Guide & a full Teacher Answer Key!

This picture book and these activities are favorites of my students and me! I hope that you and your students love reading about Science, too!
:-) Bethany
