Description

Do your students struggle with scientific literacy? Do you find yourself at a loss for how to promote vocabulary retention? Are waning attention spans becoming a larger and larger problem in your classroom from year to year? If you answered yes to any of those questions then this resource is for you.

I believe that teaching literacy is the job of every teacher, not just the heroes in English and Language Arts. And the only way we can help our students improve is by modeling and giving them chances to practice. Read out loud together, annotate, and spark classroom discussion today!

I created this line of guided reading resources to help teachers, parents, and students by providing a detailed yet easy to read (avg. reading level: grades 6-8) reference on a variety of topics. The questions that accompany the text are designed to be rigorous and require students to predict, reflect, connect, and think critically about the information being presented.

Let's get our students reading, writing, and integrating vocabulary with this resource that is compatible with multiple styles of teaching. Your purchase includes both PDF and digital copies that are perfect for pre-reading, homework and review, or even sending to absent students.

Tools covered in this resource include:

  • Triple Beam Balance
  • Graduated Cylinder
  • Spring Scale
  • Bunsen Burner
  • Hot Plate
  • Ruler
  • Magnifying Glass
  • Thermometer

  • Flask
  • Test Tube
  • Beaker

NEW! Audio Recording!
In an effort to further support scientific literacy, this resource has been updated with a link to a read aloud version of the text. This feature is not only great for differentiation, but also provides an abundance of benefits for students. Students who are read to have better listening comprehension, longer attention spans, larger vocabulary, and improved reading fluency.

After downloading this resource, share the included audio link with students, their families, or play it aloud in class!
