✅ Humans make choices that can have an impact on biodiversity.
What Assessments are Included in this Centre Packet?
This packet contains 2 rubrics along with 3 success criteria pages that can be used to have students complete a self-assessment. There are no answer keys
provided as the questions students are asked are open-ended, rather than closed ended questions.
Please note that the page count reflects the number of pages of activities. It does not include repetition in pages.
Are these Centres Original?
Each centre is accompanied by several activity pages that students can fill out to learn more about electricity and electrical devices. These centres are 100% original and were created with the intention of meeting the Smarter Science program. If you are tired of having students complete readings, or tired of using worksheets that use a plain font and are ready to be engaged, these centres are for you. The goal of this centre packet is to be affordable for you and engaging for students. Many centres are overpriced, and leave you doing extra preparation. This centre packet does not.
