Product Description
Isn't it wonderful when you can cross-curricular! These 20 Science passages are great for using in your small reading groups or for independent practice for your strong readers. They are also great to pull out for a sub.

They were written with Virginia 2nd and 3rd grade SOLS in mind, but would likely work well for most curriculum. I generally read them with my students the first time, and pull out the boldfaced vocabulary words for support. Then I have students read independently. Each passage has students searching for answers within the text, making connections, and drawing their own conclusions. They also contain a quick parts of speech search.

Topics Include:

Moon Phases
Revolution Causes Seasons
Rotation Causes Day and Night
How does gravity make the ocean tides?
Why is soil important?
How is soil made?
Soil Layers
Pollution and Conservation
Renewable Energy
Nonrenewable Energy
We need energy
How do we use energy from the sun?
How do we use energy from water?
How do we use energy from wind?
The Inclined Plane
The Lever
The Pulley
The Wheel and Axle
The Screw
The Wedge

I've also included a version with just the passages, and a few graphic organizers.

SOL 3.3, 3.7, 3,8, and 3,9
