PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Simple Machines Language Arts BUNDLE

My 3rd through 5th graders came to me with a natural timidity about writing that has blossomed into quality work that I only wish I could produce at their age! Writing across the curriculum has helped immensely.
This bundle has four parts (please see the preview) – essential questions with unit folder cover; nonfiction text features (with vocabulary foldable), essay prompts, and matching quiz.

Essential Questions Posters and Journal Cover
• Essential Questions in full color landscape format
• Essential Questions in full color portrait format
• Blank Essential Questions page
• Journal Cover for students to keep all notes and foldables in one place

Text features portion includes
• Table of contents
• Index
• Glossary
• Captions
• Text box
• Illustration
• Bold text
• Diagram and labels
• Table

Barn Door Foldable vocabulary
• Simple machines
• Inclined plane
• Wedge
• Wheel and axle
• Screw
• Lever
• Pulley
• Gear
Note: This foldable makes a great ‘jig-saw’ activity with teams teaching each other details about definitions and uses of simple machines.

5 Flap Foldable vocabulary
• Force
• Gravity
• Friction
• Work
• Energy
Note: a free foldable has been included to supplement the Science A to Z mini book on Simple and Complex Machines.

12 Writing Prompts
Each prompt includes a graphic organizer for prewriting.
• Friction – is/can/without, with sentence stems
• Pulley essay – with sentence stems
• Lever, wheel, inclined plane, screw, gear and wedge essays without sentence stems
• Simple machines essay (which answers the essential questions)
• Friction Fiction – broad prompt, then an exercise for expanding a seed idea
• Rube Goldberg invention “How To”
• Tree House “How To” with optional cooperative writing.

Matching quiz vocabulary
• Inclined plane
• Wedge
• Wheel and axle
• Screw
• Lever
• Pulley
• Gear
• Force
• Work
• Gravity

Edit: 5/21/16
• I cleaned lines that fall off page when saved as PDF.
• I added a simple line version, instead of a dotted line, to each machine. My students need dotted lines for cursive, but upper grades may not.
• Fantasy Fiction - Antigravity Machine
• Realistic Fiction - based on idiom - "Driving a wedge between"
As I add to the bundle the price may go up, but once you own it you may always download without additional cost.
