This bundle of three lessons is compatible with all of the Kindergarten Next Generation Science Standards* for Physical Science.
The bundle is specially priced at 10% off!!!
In these lessons, students will learn about physical science concepts, such as gravity, forces, such as pushes and pulls, mass vs. weight, and temperature.
Here is what’s included in EACH of the THREE lessons:
-A clickable Table of Contents
-Teacher notes and materials list
-Next Generation Science Standards* “I can…” and “I understand…” classroom poster
-Vocabulary cards covering the topics of the lesson
-Worksheet(s) covering the lesson objectives
-Supplemental blog posts explaining the hands-on activity in detail on my website Curious Little Classroom
-An assessment covering the lesson objectives
-Answer keys for worksheets, activity, and assessment
-A comprehensive lesson plan including:
Title, Grade, Objectives, NGSS*, Materials Needed, Connections to Real Life, Connections Across the Curriculum, Anticipated Difficulties with the Content, Pre-Requisite Knowledge, Key Vocabulary, Lesson Delivery Method, Examples for Better Understanding, Assessment, Wrap Up and Review, Extensions, and Modifications.

***Balloon Pull Experiment***
This lesson is compatible with the Kindergarten Next Generation Physical Science standard* K-PS2-1. Students will be able to “[p]lan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.”
This lesson is not only compatible with the Physical Science standard listed above, it also introduces students to the periodic table, elements, and atoms. The hands-on lesson uses simple, easy to use items, such as a kitchen scale, helium balloon, and small toys.
***Ramps, Gravity, and Force***
This lesson is compatible with the Kindergarten Next Generation Science Physical Science standards* K-PS2-1 and K-PS2-2.
Students will “[p]lan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.”
Students will “[a]nalyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.”
This 35-page lesson is all about big ramps, small ramps, gravity, and force. Build a model roller coaster ramp using a pool noodle, a marble, and a few other recycled materials. Explore a smaller ramp by building your very own pinball machine out of a shoe box! This lesson is extremely hands-on and it gently introduces students to intriguing, yet difficult to understand physical science concepts of force and gravity.
***Microclimates and Energy From the Sun***
This lesson is compatible with the Kindergarten Next Generation Physical Science standard* K-PS3-1, 2, where students will “[m]ake observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface [and] use tools and materials to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area, ie umbrellas, canopies, tent.”
This lesson really makes little scientists out of students! It begins by introducing the topic of microclimates and introduces students to a data table. It then teaches students how to take the data they collect and turn it into a bar graph. It introduces students to a thermometer and the temperature units, Fahrenheit and Celsius. It then teaches students how to use their new skills to build a structure to protect them from the heat of the sun.
These lessons can be used in a general education or special education classroom, in a home school setting, or as an enrichment experience.
