Looking for an introduction lesson and follow up project for science? Included is a PowerPoint lesson where student engagement is key. Students can contribute to the questions asked on the PowerPoint slides, giving some introduction to where science is found in our world. These questions are meant to make kids realize that science is all around us and we need science to survive.
You can play the PowerPoint using a SmartBoard or projector and depending on your technology, answer the questions on the SmartBoard screen, dry erase board, or chart paper.
Students are encouraged to take notes as ideas are provided, so they have some ideas they can use for their first science projects.
The students will then learn about the Scientific Summer project, which requires them to think about what they did this summer that was scientific, write about that activity while describing why it relates to science. The students will then be required to draw a picture of their activity.
This project is meant to provide the teacher with information on how much the student knows about science, the writing abilities of each student, as well as provide the first grade for the year!
You will receive the following with the Scientific Summer project: classroom lesson (PowerPoint), directions on the Scientific Summer project, a rubric to grade the project, and an example of what the Scientific Summer project should look like.
