Help your students build an understand of how things that give off light also give off heat. Comes complete with 5 ELA-style questions. This will surely make your reading coach smile.
SC.3.P.11.1 Investigate, observe, and explain that things that give off light often also give off heat.
SC.3.P.11.2 Investigate, observe, and explain that heat is produced when one object rubs against another, such as rubbing one’s hands together. (Cognitive Complexity: Level 3: Strategic Thinking & Complex Reasoning)
TEKS 3.6 Force, motion, and energy. The student knows that forces cause change and that energy exists in many forms. The student is expected to:
(A) explore different forms of energy, including mechanical, light, sound, and thermal in everyday life.
3.8 Earth and space. The student knows there are recognizable patterns in the natural world and among objects in the sky. The student is expected to:
(B) describe and illustrate the Sun as a star composed of gases that provides light and thermal energy.
All of our text is checked with multiple metrics to assure it is at an appropriate complexity for the student. By using multiple metrics, our experienced and knowledge staff are better able to determine an appropriate grade level rating. In most cases (we are still working on updating all text), you will see our text marked as Approaching, On-Grade, or Advanced per a specific grade.
We are also careful to create text with an appropriate length using a well-established norm (Grade Level x 100 + 100/300 words). We do this so our text to be used not just in the science classroom to support content, but also to be used in a reading classroom to support the development of strong readers. All of our text comes with at least 5 ELA-style questions for this purpose.
Candlelight Science is a group of educator/writers. All have been (most still are) traditional classroom teachers with an average of 20 years of experience. We started our work because of a local need, but quickly realized the need for high quality, inexpensive resources was great. In response, we continue to produce science readers with multiple reading levels (compatible with CCSS text-complexity requirements), lesson plans, and even assessments to make the lives of teachers easier and more productive.
