If you want to spice up your science instruction, this is the bundle for you! This bundle contains nine different units--each with a lapbook! Topics include science process skills, the sun and the stars, properties of matter, forms of energy, light, classifying animals, classifying plants, the water cycle, and how plants and animals respond to the changing seasons.
These units were written specifically to cover all of the third-grade Florida Standards for science. However, each state has different standards in different grade levels, so these units are appropriate for third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade students in other states. Check out the previews to see if they match your state' standards.
Each unit includes an informational text with reading questions, teaching notes, pieces for the lapbook, a unit test, and a PowerPoint! Each unit includes hands-on exploration activities or science experiments.The informational text can supplement or replace your science textbook.
The lapbooks give your students a way to show and practice what they have learned. They can complete different foldable pieces to make a lapbook about what they've learned. These pieces are great for formative assessment as you work through the unit.
The unit includes suggested teaching notes with lesson plans and objectives to use as you go through the unit and the PowerPoint. Of course, you are always free to put your own spin on the unit! The PowerPoint doesn't have anything fancy to distract from the content. It just has great pictures and photographs that go along with the content in the unit.
