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 two hands-on investigations for classroom use. For each investigation, there is an observation recording sheet to use as a stand-alone activity or for use with your science notebook!
Answer keys are provided for both the test addition and the study guide.
Check it out to see how it will supplement your science program!
