This packet goes with the 2011 National Geographic Science program for 3rd grade. It supplements information presented in the text, but takes the student engagement a step further by providing a study guide with important information for each lesson, vocabulary words and definitions, and a test addition that is based on the vocabulary and study guide.
We complete the study guide the day after we read and discuss the lesson as a review before moving on in the chapter. Parents and students love having this resource as an aid when studying for the chapter test. Administrators love seeing student locate information in the text - a very valuable skill that truly becomes very important beginning in 3rd grade.
Also included are an edible science activity for vertebrates and invertebrates, a note-taking chart for students to use as you read, and a vertebrate classifying activity for classroom use or homework.
Answer keys are provided for the test addition, the classification activity, and the study guide!
