This science unit was declared the students' favorite science rotation this year! I hope you and your students enjoy it as well!
The matter and gravity science journal includes outlines for multiple activities and experiments.
It includes a writing component as students learn how to write like a scientist and supports some measurement concepts in the second grade math core.
Each section takes about thirty minutes. The entire unit takes about five days to complete. In addition to the journals, we also read several student friendly picture books on matter and gravity.
*16 pages (printing cover on card stock recommended)
*12 hands-on activities and/or experiments - easily adapted for use in a whole group or small group setting.
*Fill in the blank questions and forms to focus discussions and to learn how to write and think like a scientist.
