It's time to bring science and the Common Core together! This hands-on, interactive science unit combines Common Core reading and writing standards into the ultimate, integrated learning experience! Within this 61 page unit, a quick, fun, and easy science experiment is connected to informational, expository, opinion, and narrative writing activities. In addition, two informational, close reading passages with teacher reading plans and text-based evidence comprehension activities make integrating your students' learning across the curriculum seamless, fun, and meaningful! The unit also comes with a fiction and nonfiction class book. Vocabulary posters and the option of turning the science experiment into a "Take Home Kit" for parent involvement are all provided!

Your students will be doing, reading, and writing about science - and may not even know they are hitting multiple Common Core literacy standards because they will be having so much FUN! Download the preview version to see a glimpse of what is included in this pack.
ALL writing activities are differentiated in complexity and format. Choose the format that works best for your students' needs, or tier your instruction by giving each student the format he or she individually needs! The possibilities for this pack are endless!
Your students will learn about a hypothesis, conclusion, how and why we communicate as learners and scientists, what a chemical reaction is, gasses, hot air balloons, what a scientist is, the scientific method, writing concepts, text evidence, beyond the text questions, and more!
I hope you enjoy this unit as much as I have! :)
