“ARE YOU HAVING TROUBLE TEACHING ABOUT SCIENTIFIC VARIABLES?”
Look no further. This product has everything you need and a lot more. Variables seem to stay with us as we move into different levels of academics. From Elementary school to College, distinguishing between Independent and Dependent variables always seem to be problematic. This 40 page package will set everything straight. This product includes visually engaging reference cards that dissect each type of variable through interactive activities.
With over 20 different experiments, students will have enough repetition to practice and discover the difference between independent and dependent variables in a fun and engaging way.
Teachers have used these cards in two dynamic presentation styles. Each card can be used individually. As such, individual cards can be adhered to bulletin boards for quick review. In addition, these cards can be used as activities in small groups or even in an around-the-world station lab.
Another style of presentation includes binding all the cards into a classroom reference booklet. The product contains covers so that this booklet can be put together. Teachers like having this booklet and display them in their classroom as this concept is brought up throughout the school year in any science classroom. College professors have used this book to stay focused on the fundamental approach identifying these types of variable.
In this package, you get 3 sets of cards. One set includes visually engaging content related to dissecting the different types of variables including Controlled, Independent, Dependent, and Erroneous. Students will apply what they learn through interactive assessments on each card.
The second set of cards includes Experimental Problem sets. On each card, the variables are selected for you. Students will have identify the experimental problem only using the variables. This gives good practice identifying which variable depends on another.
The third set of cards are the Experiment Set. Students will be exposed to a total of 10 different experiments in which they have to identify the correct variable.
Also included in this package is Independent and Dependent hand sign cards. Teacher will give students examples of experiments and students will work together in small teams and raise their Independent/Dependent cards to identify the correct variables.
In summary, students love this product and I know you will too for many reasons. Mostly, each card is interactive, visually engaging, and students want to take them home with them; as opposed to tossing them in the trash on the way out the door.
If you are familiar with my products, you will continue to see or see firsthand; how these cards will become a permanent educational artifact in your classroom.
