I bet you're hearing from administrators......"NO MORE WORKSHEETS OR RUN-OFFS! WE EXPECT TO SEE STUDENT GENERATED WORK!"
These "kid-friendly" illustrations were designed as a model for TEACHERS to use during whole-group instruction, mini-lessons or as "posters" in workstations. These Properties of Matter (heavy/light and hot/cold) can be identified, defined, discussed and drawn WITH you! My students create, illustrate and label these in their spiral notebooks, as I demonstrate each drawing, step by step. Writing the words AND illustrating an original picture to match, help those early readers/learners be successful!
Our Science notebooks can also be used as a "word wall" resource during our daily writing activities, as well!
