***1.1 Measurement & the Metric System Notes***
Covers the basics of the metric system and the basic scientific measurements of length, mass, and time. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

***1.1 Measurement Lab***
Students measure various items around your classroom.

***1.1 Measurement Practice***

***1.1 Metric System Articles***
Students read one article in favor and one article against the United States switching to the metric system, then write a response saying which side they agree with. This reading activity comes with (4) different versions, each written at a different lexile - 800, 1000, 1200, and 800 translated to Spanish.

***1.1 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint***
Learning objectives and sample starter questions for the topic.

***1.2 Conversions Notes***
Covers the process of converting metric units by using dimensional analysis. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

***1.2 Conversions Practice Stations***
This document includes 6 stations with 2 conversions questions each. The pages can be stapled to a manila folder and propped up. The answer page goes under the question page for students to check their answers. Have students use whiteboards to answer each question to add a little fun.

***1.2 Conversions Practice***
Students practice identifying conversion factors and converting metric units. This practice sheet comes with an (A) version to be used for the majority of students as well as a shorter and/or different (B) version to be used for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

***1.2 Measurement Lab Conversions***
Students take select measurements that they found during their Measurement Lab (part of the 1.1 - Measurement & the Metric System download) and convert them to other metric units. A great way to tie conversions to something tangible.

***1.2 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint***
Learning objectives and sample starter questions for the topic.

***1.2 PowerPoint Notes***
Notes in PowerPoint format to make presentation to the class a breeze.

***1.3 Scientific Method Notes***
Covers the steps of the scientific method and why we use them. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

***1.3 Scientific Method Practice***
Students practice going through the steps of the scientific method - first with an experiment performed together as a class, then with an experiment performed with a partner. This practice sheet comes with an (A) version to be used for the majority of students as well as a shorter and/or different (B) version to be used for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

***1.3 Objective PowerPoint***
Learning objectives for the topic.

***1.3 PowerPoint Notes***
Notes in PowerPoint format to make presentation to the class a breeze.

***1.4 Variables Notes***
Covers independent, dependent, and control variables and how to identify them in an experiment. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

***1.4 Variables Mini-Poster***
This sheet gives students a space to make a mini-poster showing the different types of variables. Students are asked to come up with their own experiment, identify the variables, and put a drawing to each of them. An example is included on the worksheet.

***1.4 Variables Practice***
Students practice identifying independent, dependent, and control variables in different experiments. This practice sheet comes with an (A) version to be used for the majority of students as well as a shorter and/or different (B) version to be used for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

***1.4 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint***
Learning objectives and sample starter questions for the topic.

***1.4 PowerPoint Notes***
Notes in PowerPoint format to make presentation to the class a breeze.

***1.5 Graphing Notes***
Covers the parts of a graph, lines of best fit, and relationships. Also includes a fun game to gather data and practice graphing. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

***1.5 Graphing Whiteboard Practice***
This PowerPoint includes three slides with data tables. Have students set up a graph and graph the data on a whiteboard. There are also asked to draw the line of best fit and identify the relationship.

***1.5 Graphing & Variables Activity***
This activity is much like a lab, although I don't call it that because it does not follow the scientific process. It is more like a hands-on practice sheet. Students rotate to different stations and perform tasks while gathering data. Then they graph their data and identify variables and relationships. This activity ties in very well to Lesson 1.4 - Variables.

***1.5 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint***
Learning objectives and sample starter questions for the topic.

***1.5 PowerPoint Notes***
Notes in PowerPoint format to make presentation to the class a breeze.

***Binder Divider - Unit 1***
This page can be printed and trimmed along the edge slightly to make a helpful binder divider. I find that these dividers for each unit help students stay organized.

***Study Guide - Unit 1***
This sheet can be used in many ways. I always have students work as a group to complete the study guide. After a predetermined amount of time, I pick one paper randomly from each group and use that paper to assign a completion grade to the entire group. This keeps group members accountable for keeping each other on track and informed while they work.

***Unit Test - Unit 1***
This test includes true/false, matching, free response, calculation, and multiple choice questions covering the entire unit.

***Recovery Quiz - Unit 1***
This three question recovery quiz gives students an opportunity to recover from a poor test score. The quiz includes the most commonly-missed questions from my experience. I have all students take the quiz and give them 1/2 point per question back on their test score up to 100%.
