Seamlessly pair Science concepts with Reading and Writing standards for your grade level with Read About Science Mentor Texts!
I am a trade book over textbook kind of gal. So I rely heavily on picture books to help me teach Science standards. As a result, I have written a new series of engaging elementary school resources called Read About Science!
In this resource, you will find ten activities to accompany the book What is the World Made Of--All About Solids, Liquids, and Gases by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld. This resource will help you introduce, reinforce, and extend the Physical Science concepts of: solids, liquids, and gases.
The included activities support CCSS in Reading & Writing of Informational Text & clear directions make them suitable for upper elementary students to complete in Science Centers, Science Stations, Literature Circles, or even Guided Reading Groups.
I have also included a Resource Usage Guide & a full Teacher Answer Key!
This picture book and these activities are favorites of my students and me! I hope that you and your students love reading about Science, too!
