These 22 analogies with diagrams cover NGSS and TEKS science standards and are very effective for test review and end of year. They cover life science, earth science, physical science, and general science. Students think about the given relationships in analogies to find the missing answer. Science concepts are taken from grades four and five. Examples:
earth's tilts: seasons:: earth's roation: day and night
sugar stirred into water: solution:: pepper stirred into water: suspension (mixture)
evaporation: warmsing:: condensing: cooling
Diagrams are shown for each anology. Teacher can show the diagrams or initially hide them. There are several diagrams with explanations that can be used as teaching tools, too.
Answer key and student sheet is available. You can use these in science centers, as a SCOOT activity, or as a whole group teacher instruction.
