    Description

    Nature & Environment: Five Grade K Life Science 5E Hands-On Activities

    ABOUT THIS BUNDLE OF ACTIVITIES:

    This is one of a set of 5E, NGSS-aligned hands-on activities created by Ellen at the EdTechLens. The activities give students direct, hands-on experience with life science concepts and provide opportunities for collaborative learning. These hands-on activities are for classroom use. They are NGSS-aligned and support the life science curriculum. Lesson time for each activity is 1 1/2 to 2 hours; they may be done in parts. Easily-available materials are used. 

    This is a bundle and the individual activities are sold separately on TpT. Individual activities are also found in units in the Ellen at the EdTechLens store. Please see links below, if you already have some of our products, before purchasing.
