PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“This is a great resource encompassing a good mix of reading, hands-on, research, & writing.”

I am a trade book over textbook kind of gal. So I rely heavily on picture books to help me teach Science standards. As a result, I have written a new series of elementary school resources called Read About Science! Each Read About Science resource features a mentor text to help you seamlessly pair Science concepts with Reading and Writing standards for your grade level.

In this resource, you will find ten activities to accompany the book Let's Go Rock Collecting by Roma Gans. This resource will help you introduce, reinforce, and extend the Earth Science concepts of Earth's Crust, Igneous Rocks, Sedimentary Rocks, Metamorphic Rocks, and more!

The included activities support CCSS in Reading & Writing of Informational Text & clear directions make them suitable for upper elementary students to complete in Science Centers, Science Stations, Literature Circles, or even Guided Reading Groups.

I have also included a Resource Usage Guide & a full Teacher Answer Key!

This picture book and these activities are favorites of my students and me! I hope that you and your students love reading about Science, too!
:-) Bethany
