Want to incorporate more science in your classroom? Don't have a lot of materials or resources? Then build a low-budget science center to get your students thinking, talking and learning like a scientist!
This product includes 6 different science activities. Students can:
-Design their own scientific experiment
-Solve a problem using the engineering process
-Research a topic
-Find science in the news (to connect science in the classroom to science in the REAL world)
-Build vocabulary skills
-Improve science skills
The product includes posters, directions and guiding worksheets to research, experiment, engineer and find science in the news. Print the worksheets, put them in the pockets on the display and you're all set!
This product ALSO includes:
6 vocabulary worksheets on common root words, prefixes and suffixes; engineering and inquiry terms; and tools and measurement terms. There is also a sheet for students to create their own vocabulary list! Additional vocabulary worksheets (aligned to NGSS) are available to download.
10 starter worksheets to improve your students' science skills. Worksheets cover measurement (length, mass and volume - ruler is needed for the length worksheet), graphing (pictograph, bar graph and circle graph), setting up a controlled experiment and making predictions based on observations.
New NGSS requires students to do more than just memorize facts - they have to think deeper, problem-solve and use more sophisticated language. This product will help your students build these skills and will make science a part of class everyday!
