Science Snaps are a 6th Grade Science Texas TEKS aligned resource to improve and promote scientific thinking skills and scientific vocabulary. They have been created in compliance with 6th Grade Science standards, however they are a versatile tool that can be used to identify science concepts in a wide range of grade levels and content areas.

This resource can be used for a warm-up, exit ticket, independent activity, class discussion, or even a short station activity.

The high resolution source files for each photograph are included, as well as a blank template to create your own!

The great thing about this resource is there are no “right and wrong” answers. However it WILL provide you with valuable insight into each student’s personal understanding of the topic, no differentiation required.

Teacher Instructions are included in the "Preview".
