This reader (710L, 650+ words) supports the science concept that plants respond to stimuli such as light, heat and gravity, A great piece of text to include in the ELA block as a close read to preview or review this important topic. Comes complete with 5 ELA-style questions.
SC.3.L.14.2 Investigate and describe how plants respond to stimuli (heat, light, gravity), such as the way plant stems grow toward light and their roots grow downward in response to gravity.
TEKS 6.3 Scientific investigation and reasoning. The student uses critical thinking, scientific reasoning, and problem solving to make informed decisions and knows the contributions of relevant scientists. The student is expected to:
(D) relate the impact of research on scientific thought and society, including the history of science and contributions of scientists as related to the content.
TEKS 6.11 Earth and space. The student understands the organization of our solar system and the relationships among the various bodies that comprise it. The student is expected to:
(C) describe the history and future of space exploration, including the types of equipment and transportation needed for space travel.
All of our text is checked with multiple metrics to assure it is at an appropriate complexity for the student. By using multiple metrics, our experienced and knowledge staff are better able to determine an appropriate grade level rating. In most cases (we are still working on updating all text), you will see our text marked as Approaching, On-Grade, or Advanced per a specific grade.
We are also careful to create text with an appropriate length using a well-established norm (Grade Level x 100 + 100/300 words). We do this so our text to be used not just in the science classroom to support content, but also to be used in a reading classroom to support the development of strong readers. All of our text comes with at least 5 ELA-style questions for this purpose.
Candlelight Science is a group of educator/writers. All have been (most still are) traditional classroom teachers with an average of 20 years of experience. We started our work because of a local need, but quickly realized the need for high quality, inexpensive resources was great. In response, we continue to produce science readers with multiple reading levels (compatible with CCSS text-complexity requirements), lesson plans, and even assessments to make the lives of teachers easier and more productive.
