Each of these sub plans are 4-6 pages long, and meet multiple standards, including literacy, diagrams, and simple graphing.

*Student and class packets are included as an option to save paper.

Check out the reviews. Many past buyers of my sub plans have told me they love these lessons so much that they end up using them at the end of the year anyways, despite not being sick. Volume III gives you yet another set to love!

Many districts (including mine) are requiring a sub folder with activities to do "on-the-fly" in case of an emergency absence. I always had trouble with this. Though it's a great idea, it's often hard to predict when you'll be out and what the class is studying at the time of your absences. That's why I created these sub plans that relate to science, pique student interests, and can be used at nearly any time.

Buy Bundled and save! This package of 5 sub plans saves you 20%!This package contains 5 "Emergency Sub Plans" to get you through the year. These activities are common core aligned for literacy in science. They can be used for health or social studies, as well.

Plan L: Big Foot and the Scientific Method

Two versions are included with this sub plan: an original version that introduces students to bar graph breaks when working with a wide range of data, and a graph-free version that omits the graph and includes a couple extra analysis questions.
