Students will love the great visual pictures of types of water. Students will also compare types of soil and rocks with interactive notebooks for science journals!

These ready to “print and teach” activities will allow you to:

· Introduce new vocabulary with vocabulary cards

· Practice fine motor skills with cut and paste worksheets and interactive notebooks

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Stephanie H.. says, “My students enjoyed these worksheets. They were open ended so that the more advanced students could write in the boxes while others showed their writing through pictures.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Lisa M.. says, “The vocabulary was exactly what I needed to support all learners, and the sheets were helpful for some of my students who needed a little extra guidance during our learning.”
