Please Note: This is designed for Florida Interactive Science , 3rd Grade Textbooks published by Pearson. I do feel however that this can go for both 2nd and 3rd grade strands for most science textbooks. The only thing that might not work would be the vocabulary pages.
You are getting:
Vocabulary Cards – The cards can be used on bulletin boards, or even just as a quick set of cards that you introduce before reading the chapter. For group activities, I like to give a vocabulary card to a group and have them create mini posters to go with each word. This can be done before or after the story has been read.
Vocabulary Pocket- Recommend Cardstock. I wanted to give this page a nerdy science feel, with a pocket protector with a scientist’s pens and pencils inside. Students will cut out each pencil for each vocabulary word. Then on the back students will write a shortened definition. This page can be referred back to in pull the vocab words for each lesson., to do a sort or to study before the chapter test
Lesson 1 Interactive- Students will create a flip four square for this lesson. It looks a little upside down but once it is folded correctly, you will see it is facing the correct way. This interactive will have students write short responses. Feel free to also write notes around the flaps on the notebook lines as well.
Lesson 2 Interactive- This is more of a barn door interactive. You should have a left and right side of flaps. Students will fill in blanks, or circle something on the front, and then have a short response underneath. This is great for note-taking strategies.
Science Safety Glue-In- Use this just as a beginning of the year rule review. This can easily used as a flap, to where teachers can add their own classroom rules underneath the goggle image.
Lesson 3- Scientific Method – Cut tabs on the left and right side, Flip paper over to glue down the grey side. The tabs will then fold in towards each other. This is an actual science experiment that will work great during the heat of August. Pre-read to figure out what tabs you should do before the experiment and which tabs you will do after.
Lesson 4 and 5- Pentagon Folds- Once you fold each pentagon strip, you will see that the far two right ones are the first parts of the lesson, and you work down to the left side tab. Use the backsides for extra jot-notes if needed. Glue the Lesson titles to the blank part of the pentagon that will be facing up once you fold.
