Looking for a resource packet that gives you science, reading, and writing standard evidence? This packet is perfect for you! Every task in the unit begins with a reading and/or writing strategy focus and incorporates the science standard as the content or focus point for the activity. Students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of science experiments and observations related to rocks and soils through an organized graphic organizer that also shows their understanding of the reading and/or writing strategy addressed. Strategies include: compare and contrast, vocabulary acquisition, main idea, recording observed information in list form and sorting into categories fitting a main idea. The packet also includes a page of interactive website resources that can be used as a technology connection.
