These September science experiments are packed with back to school science investigations that will keep your kids engaged all month! Experiments are focused on themes of Back to School, Labor Day, Apples, and All About Me. Each week of experiments is organized into the following sections:
Teacher Preparation: Materials needed & directions for set-up.
Pre-Experiment-Activating students’ schema using a mini-activity or class discussion.
Related Skills-Mini-activities and discussions to cover prerequisite skills & used in the experiment.
Suggested Anchor Charts-Anchor charts for whole class as well as smaller versions for student use
Experiment-Steps for completing the science experiment.
Let’s Reflect-Questions to answer together as a class or individually in student science notebooks.
Literacy Extension-A writing activity to synthesize the experiment with a real world concept while using higher level thinking.
Included in the pack are photographs of the experiments included, a variety of exit slips and other student forms to use before/during/after the experiment, and the option to use the majority of the materials either with or without student science notebooks.
