This is the seventh of a series of nonfiction science articles I am currently writing. This resource was designed for use in an upper elementary classroom, mainly grades 4-6. The new science standards, as well as language arts common core, require a large amount of science nonfiction reading. Meet the standards with an article your students can understand. Questions and answer key provided. This is a print and go lesson. Great to use with a sub! Great for enrichment!
This is Article 7: Theory vs. Law. This article defines hypothesis, inference, and looks at the difference between a scientific theory and a scientific law. Interactive question included. Answer key included.
