Product Description

This middle school text is a fun read that helps students break the common misconceptions associated with the difference between mass and weight. At a two levels (approaching & on grade and at 750+words) it is perfect for a close read to integrate science and ELA. Comes complete with ELA-style questions.

Supports the standards:

SC.8.P.8.2 Differentiate between weight and mass recognizing that weight is the amount of gravitational pull on an object and is distinct from, though proportional to, mass.

TEKS 6.11(A): describe the physical properties, locations, and movements of the Sun, planets, moons, meteors, asteroids, and comets; 

6.11(B): understand that gravity is the force that governs the motion of our solar system; 

Readability: 

All of our text is checked with multiple metrics to assure it is at an appropriate complexity for the student. By using multiple metrics, our experienced and knowledge staff are better able to determine an appropriate grade level rating. In most cases (we are still working on updating all text), you will see our text marked as Approaching, On-Grade, or Advanced per a specific grade.  

We are also careful to create text with an appropriate length using a well-established norm (Grade Level x 100 + 100/300 words).  We do this so our text to be used not just in the science classroom to support content, but also to be used in a reading classroom to support the development of strong readers. All of our text comes with at least 5 ELA-style questions for this purpose. 

About Us:

Candlelight Science is a group of educator/writers. All have been (most still are) traditional classroom teachers with an average of 20 years of experience. We started our work because of a local need, but quickly realized the need for high quality, inexpensive resources was great. In response, we continue to produce science readers with multiple reading levels (compatible with CCSS text-complexity requirements), lesson plans, and even assessments to make the lives of teachers easier and more productive.
