This lesson plan was created in a PowerPoint so that the teacher can view the notes, and the students can see the text and questions displayed on the board. The lesson contains a word splash, 3-2-1 activity, introduction to energy, 5 science centers and an end-of-unit project. You will need to visit ReadWorks.com to download the text for the centers, and you will need to search Teachers Pay Teachers for the (free) experiment directions. These hands-on centers have proven to truly engage students during science time! The directions for each center are on different slides and are meant to be printed out.
