Product Description
Collecting Math Data in a Science Survey Tally Chart and Writing to Communicate the Results

Strategies for Helping Students:
~ Identify Critical Information (Element 6)
~ Elaborate on New Information (Element 11)
~ Record and Represent Knowledge (Element 12)

No prep needed. Everything is done for you and ready to go.
Just print off the copies you need.

Included:
1. Personalized Math and Science Mini-Book:
My Name is ___ and I Learned About Plant Life Cycles Today

2. Evidence of student learning
a. Element 6 ~ personalized Close Activity for identifying critical information ~ *with word bank and answer key

b. Element 11 ~ personalized General Inferential Questions and RACE Writing Strategic short answer responses for elaborating on new information ~ *with answer key

c. Element 11 ~ personalized Elaborative Interrogation Questions for elaborating on new information ~ *with answer key

e. Element 12 ~ Blank Tally Chart for recording and representing knowledge

Learning Goals Aligned with Common Core standards
• MA.2.MD.4.10 Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.

• SC.2.L.16.1 Observe and describe major stages in the life cycles of plants and animals, including beans and butterflies.

• LA.2.W.3.8 Recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.

Can also be used in reading as it is aligned with Common Core standard: LAFS.2.RI.3.7 ~ Explain how specific images (e.g., a chart showing data collected) contribute to and clarify a text.

This 11 page personalized mini-book with 4 student artifacts as evidence of student learning integrates the 3 subjects of math, science, writing and even reading if you’d like to use this lesson to do so.

With this reading activity they will learn about the major stages of a plant’s life cycle while learning to identify the critical content of collecting data in a survey, elaborating on that data, and recording and representing their knowledge on their own tally chart.

Highly effective for teacher observations:
• Element 6 Close Activity (Helping Students Identify Critical Information) ~ *answer key provided

• Element 11 General and Elaborative Questions (Helping Students Elaborate on New Information) ~ *answer key provided

• Element 12 Blank Tally Chart (Helping Students Record and Represent Knowledge) ~ *answer key provided

• Element 17 Similes and Metaphors Fill-in-the-Blank activity (Helping Stu-dents Examine Similarities and Differences) ~ *answer key provided

Aligned with:
• Go Math! Lesson 10.1 ~ Collect Data
• Science Fusion Lesson ~ Unit 9 Lesson 3 ~ What are Some Plant Life Cycles?
