MONDAY: PHYSICAL SCIENCE TERM OF THE WEEK
Start your week off by familiarizing your students with physical science terms in a fun and engaging way. The PowerPoint presentation teaches students terms with an easy-to-understand definition as well as many related short video clips! After they learn the term, have students record the meaning of the term (in their own words) using the science term of the week booklet (editable) or on the weekly student response sheet, then put up the ready-to-print classroom poster on your "Physical Science Term Of The Week" board!
This is an excellent way to introduce and familiarize students to terms that they may see during the course of the year in a fun and engaging way without being too intimidating.
TUESDAY: PHYSICAL SCIENCE DISCUSSION OF THE WEEK
Bring discussion into your science classroom on Tuesdays with these task cards and presentation slides that are sure to get even your most reluctant students discussing interesting physical science topics.
WEDNESDAY: PHYSICAL SCIENCE VIDEO JOURNAL OF THE WEEK
Get your students' attention on Wednesdays with these engaging science video response prompts! The slides include links to short high-interest video clips that relate to physical science.
Students respond to a short prompt related to the video that allows them to summarize information, make connections, make predictions, and much more! YouTube is required for the video clips in this presentation.
Video journal response cards are also included.

Each slide includes a quote, a picture of the scientist/person who said the quote, a brief explanation of who they are/what they are known for, and the prompting questions. The prompting questions that allow students to respond to the meaning of the quote, consider how it relates to their world, and if it still holds significance today.
