Students discover the composition of soil by investigating its four components and reading information as a center or whole class activity.
Science Tasks with Otis & Flask were designed as centers to reinforce science concepts in grades 3-6. These centers include Teacher Background information, Task Cards for each center that provide information for the student, photocopy-ready student packet pages which many include student observation sheets, data sheets, student readings, vocabulary, and assessment items. An answer key is also included.
The Teacher Guide for all the centers is available as a FREE download. This gives detailed information about the set-up of each center, and content addressed in each center as well.
