Product Description
10 Pack of Science Sub Plans. There are 10 science articles (with questions and answer keys) in this pack of secondary science sub plans. This is a great solution to both science literacy and science sub plans for the busy teacher. Finding reliable and interesting science articles on the internet or in periodicals is very time consuming. Formatting online articles to fit a printed page can also be challenging and can often waste time and paper. Worst of all, it's often difficult to find articles that will engage your students. This is where this volume of articles comes in!

NUMEROUS USES:

The great thing about articles is that they can be used for a variety of assignments if not used for a sub plan. There is a call for increased science literacy and the use of informational texts in classes, as well as a push to make science relevant to students. Engaging science articles are a good way to meet these needs.

(1) No prep sub plans that are easy to hand out and collect.
(2) In school suspension plans that are handy for those unexpected times.
(3) Independent work for early finishers.
(4) No prep extra credit assignment.
(5) Homework assignment.
(6) Warm up work for the beginning of class.
(7) Assign at the beginning of the week and take up at the end.
