Introduce the six vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters make an attractive bulletin board display in a snap!


Introduce the unit by having students answer (predict) the questions in the anticipatory set. Come back at the end of the unit to check and correct their answers. Next, have students read the passages about the human body, cells, muscular system and our skin. Then they can complete the organizers and comprehension questions. Students will love meeting and learning about Rosalind Franklin.

Have students complete the Flipbook and build it page by page. I usually have them do one page at each center or learning station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip-up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.
