PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This bundle contains the task cards, morning work (which could be used as homework and/or class work), and study guides (which could be used as a pre/post assessment) I created for my light, sound, and simple machine units. The items included can also be purchased separately in my store. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you or your students!

Descriptions:


Light Task Cards

These are task cards I created to use to check for mastery with our Light unit. These are designed with 4th grade in mind, but they could be used in other grades are remediation, pre-teaching, or extension. Each is open ended to ensure they are not just guessing the answer and not really taking the time to think about and apply what they know. I included an answer sheet students could use to record their thoughts. It is large enough to allow for the short answer. I have my students use notebook paper to save on copies, but the option is there! You can copy the answer sheets front to back.

Skills Covered
~how light travels
~transparent, translucent, opaque (identify and explain)
~reflection
~refraction
*definition, diagrams, and examples
~concave and convex lenses (what they do and how they work)
~prism (what it is and how it works)
~how we see a rainbow in nature
~how shadows are formed
~how we see colors (including black and white)

These could be used as individual practice, an assessment, a group activity, homework, or for an early finisher.

I hope your class gets great use out of these task cards!



Sound Task Cards

These are task cards I created to use to check for mastery with our sound unit. These are designed with 4th grade in mind, but they could be used in other grades are remediation, pre-teaching, or extension. Each is open ended to ensure they are not just guessing the answer and not really taking the time to think about and apply what they know. I included an answer sheet students could use to record their thoughts. It is large enough to allow for the short answer. I have my students use notebook paper to save on copies, but the option is there! You can copy the answer sheets front to back.

Skills Covered
~how sound is produced
~how sound moves through various mediums
~parts of a sound wave
~how humans hear sounds
~amplitude (What is it and scenarios using knowledge of amplitude)
~pitch (What is it and understanding how the wave changes for high and low pitch)
~how to change pitch (given an object, students must determine how to change pitch)
~knowing how frequency correlates to pitch

These could be used as individual practice, an assessment, a group activity, homework, or for an early finisher.

I hope your class gets great use out of these task cards!


Simple Machine Task Cards

These are task cards I created to use to check for mastery with our simple machines unit. These are designed with 4th grade in mind, but they could be used in other grades are remediation, pre-teaching, or extension. Each is open ended to ensure they are not just guessing the answer and not really taking the time to think about and apply what they know. I included an answer sheet students could use to record their thoughts. It is large enough to allow for the short answer. I have my students use notebook paper to save on copies, but the option is there! You can copy the answer sheets front to back.

Skills Covered
~gravity
~friction
~force
~Application of skills
~~which requires more force
~~How does the hitting a ball change speed and direction?
~~How can you reduce friction?
~~How do we reduce friction?
~simple machines (pulley, inclined plane, wedge, screw, wheel and axle, and lever)
~~How do they make work easier?
~~Describe each type
~~Describe how each type makes work easier

These could be used as individual practice, an assessment, a group activity, homework, or for an early finisher.

I hope your class gets great use out of these task cards!


Light Study Guide (Could be used as an assessment)

This is the study guide I created to go along with our science test that comes with our science text book. This could also be used as an assessment over light at the end of your unit. With mastery in mind, this was created using short answer questions. This ensures that students truly know the material and are not just guessing. I hope you and your class find this useful!

Topics Covered:
~transparent, translucent, and opaque
~how light travels
~lenses (concave and convex-shape and properties)
~how a rainbow is formed
~ROY G BIV
~reflection vs. refraction
~how we see color
~what a prism is and what it does

This was designed with 4th grade standards in mind, but this could be used as enrichment in lower grades or as remediation in upper grades.

Please let me know how else I can help you and your class!


Simple Machines Study Guide and/or Assessment

This is the study guide I created to go along with our science test that comes with our science text book. This could also be used as an assessment over simple machines at the end of your unit. With mastery in mind, this was created using short answer questions. This ensures that students truly know the material and are not just guessing. I hope you and your class find this useful!

Topics Covered:
~Force and Motion
~~gravity
~~friction
~~force
~~speed and direction
~~examples of each and justifying answers (critical thinking)
~Simple Machines
~~How do they work?
~~Why do they work?
~~6 types (describe and examples)

This was designed with 4th grade standards in mind, but this could be used as enrichment in lower grades or as remediation in upper grades.

Topics Covered:
~how sound travels
~how sound is produced
~parts of a sound wave
~ear parts and duties
~pitch vs. amplitude
~~~What they are and how they are changed
~Students are given scenarios and asked what was being changed (pitch or amplitude) and how they could change it and/or to explain what was happening. Critical thinking!

This was designed with 4th grade standards in mind, but this could be used as enrichment in lower grades or as remediation in upper grades.

Light Morning Work/Class Work/Homework option

This is the morning work I created for my class to complete throughout our light unit. In the beginning, they will utilize their resources to research the answers.

This could be used as a preteaching, homework, morning work, daily review, centers...the possibilities are endless!

Skills Covered:
~reflection
~refraction
~why we see colors
~why we see rainbows
~lenses (concave vs. convex)
~how lenses help us
~natural vs. artificial light

Skills Covered:
Students will demonstrate the relationship between the application of a force and the resulting change in position and motion on an object.

a. Identify simple machines and explain their uses (lever, pulley, wedge, inclined plane,
screw, wheel and axle).

b. Using different size objects, observe how force affects speed and motion.

c. Explain what happens to the speed or direction of an object when a greater force than
the initial one is applied.

d. Demonstrate the effect of gravitational force on the motion of an object.
