Product Description

Four activities for the beginning of the year:

I. Variable Notes and Card Exchange Activity

Students practice identifying variables and constants.

II. Board Game – Review

This board game can be used to review vocabulary or unit objectives. Students like the mini-challenges across the game board. Game cards for Safety/ Scientific Method/ Measurement included.

III. Bring the Gnome Home –Data Analysis Activity

Students use observation and inference skills to determine who stole a garden gnome. This activity is similar to the "Mitzi" activity in Beginning of the Year Activities.

IV. Playing Doctor – A Note-Taking Activity

Students practice note-taking from a non-fiction reading in order to successfully “diagnose” fictional patients. This also works well as an introduction to a unit on the human body.
