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!

Besides using these articles for sub plans, they also help promote science literacy which is emphasized in many curricula including NGSS and TEKS standards.

I have created professionally written and designed articles that will grab your students' attention. They will save you a lot of time and give you no-prep, ready to go printables at your fingertips. Questions and answer keys have been provided for all articles. Each science reading article is 1 and 1/3rd pages of text with 2/3rd pages of questions. In total, only two pages (or one page double-sided) to print for each student.

✿ All the ten articles in this volume combined are worth $29.90 at $2.99 each, but you save 25% with this collection and only pay 22.43, so each article is reduced to costing only $2.24.

✿ These 10 articles can also be found in my Science Reading Articles MEGA Bundle
for over 35% OFF along with 40 other articles.

(3) Independent work for early finishers.
(4) No prep extra credit assignment.
