This product comes with six, printable pages: an anticipation guide (pre/post- assessment or warm-up), the answer key, unit cover, and a slide presentation. The pre-assessment may also be used as a warm-up activity. Students will engage in a whole class discussion to uncover what they know, think they know, and will learn by using the "think-pair-share" method and then share with the whole class. The slide presentation guides the discussion. Watch your students challenge each other's ideas!

This product is part of my unit bundle and focuses on topics covered in my Scientific Investigation Unit Bundle- Science Interactive Notebook. Buy the bundle and save time and money!

Product details:

-Unit Cover:
Unit cover comes with the standards, benchmarks and a word bank with a list of typical vocabulary words covered throughout the unit.

-Anticipation Guide:
This pre/post-assessment has ten statements students will identify as either true or false and then explain. Students will then be asked to create a title page by writing the unit title and include three pictures with four colors. This provides the teacher an opportunity to discover what students know, don't know, and will learn.

-Slide Presentation:
The presentation includes the ten statements and prompts to help guide a whole class discussion using the “think-pair-share” strategy.

Suggestion: make "True/False" cards for students to hold up and watch how all students are engaged with this fun and collaborative discussion lesson/assessment!
