Product Description
This activity helps children build an understanding of what tides are and what causes them to happen on Earth. Students read the information, answer the questions, and highlight where each answer (or clue, in the case of an inference) is located in the passage. Also included are notes on what causes the tides, and an answer key. I recommend filling in the blanks on the notes together as a class with a model projected or written on the board, since there is no word bank included. Being teacher-led means that you can pause at each sentence and discuss why the answers are the most logical words to fill in the blanks. The notes can easily be cut and glued into interactive notebooks and students can draw a picture diagram to show what high and low tide look like on the same stretch of sand, and also how the moon's gravity pulls on Earth's water.
