Indiana Science Standards 2016! Kindergarten Simplified Science Standards, Unit Plans, Science Investigations, and Editable Investigation Templates! This resource has it all!
This is the BEST standards-based guide for developing comprehensive science units for the 2016 Indiana Science Standards. Two separate files are included in this must-have resource!
FILE 1: pdf format
numbered and simplified
grouped in units for your convenience
Unit Planning Sheets:
numbered standards and big ideas by unit
library call number and related picture book recommendations
Monday-Friday planning template
one per unit, not per standard
IMPORTANT *Since I don’t know which book, science kit, or other resources you have, I have created one activity (investigation, research, or diagram) based on one standard in that unit. Standards are identified at the top of the sheet. Assignments are general and directions may not be clear until you READ THE STANDARD. If this particular activity does not meet your needs based on your resources, I have also included several general investigation templates in Powerpoint format that you can edit. They are in File 2.
FILE 2: Powerpoint format
EDITABLE Investigation, Research, Diagram Templates
