Great science and reading test-prep!
4th and 5th grade science fiction/nonfiction stories and passages that teach several different science concepts. Each story is followed up with reading test-prep style questions and writing activities! From light and sound, mass, matter, ecology, adaptations, lab safety, inherited traits and much more, this is a super way to integrate science, reading and writing. Great science and reading test prep activities!
Fiction science "themed" reading passages with follow-up reading test prep questions and writing prompt activities. Every passage is full of science facts, science vocabulary and science concepts.
Topics of the fiction stories include: Ecosystems, Food Chains, Lab Equipment, Mass & Matter, Weather, Erosion, Light, Sound, Mixtures & Solutions, Adaptations, Inherited Traits, Lab Safety, Nutrition, and Ecology.
Inside this book you will find 61 pages of interesting fiction passages with science themes that are correlated to general science concepts matching the 4th and 5th grade science standards.
The reading questions provide the rigor needed for your students to become critical and investigative readers.
I have also included a follow-up journal writing activity for each non-fiction passage that connects to the science standards that are being explored in each passage.
Integrating science into reading is a natural teaching strategy that makes instruction meaningful and learning relevant to our learners. As more and more content is being packed into the school day, this book allows the teacher to be able to teach “smarter” and utilize the hours in the day more effectively.
These activities would work well as an introduction to the science concept; or for additional intervention of science and reading skills for struggling learners.
I have also included a template titled, “Science Passage Report Rundown.” This is an excellent resource for students who need additional practice understanding the basics of identifying information text. The “Science Passage Report Rundown” can be used with all of the passages in this book.
