The concepts of weathering and erosion are important ones to teach for understanding the earth's changing surface. Your students will be able to complete a hands-on investigation with this tabbed booklet, in addition to practicing skills in other content areas, such as reading and writing. Help your students learn more about weather, eroding, and more in fun and meaningful ways!

Unfortunately, with the large demands on reading and math from Common Core, science is often pushed to the side. If your district is like mine, then you often have very little time to dedicate to science, yet you are still expected to fully cover the entire curriculum. This packet was created to help save you time and to cover the important science concepts while still meeting the non-fiction criteria of Common Core.

This Product Includes:

✓ Mini-book for students to assemble and explore weather, erosion, and other related concepts. It can be used to teach, reinforce, and/or challenge students, all while meeting their needs and learning styles.
✓ Differentiated reading page -- higher level (designated with two stars for student privacy) and lower level (designated with one star)
✓ Tabs to be used as science stations or as literacy stations. The first tab contains an important vocabulary activity related to weathering and erosion and corresponds with the reading piece provided. The second tab asks comprehension questions related to the reading piece and requires students to support their answers with textual evidence. The third tab focuses on an investigation to deepen the understanding of the concepts. The fourth tab asks students to draw, and the fifth tab prompts students to respond to a thought-provoking journal question.
✓ The investigation includes students exploring three molds of soil - one with grass mixed in, one with regular soil, and one that is a mold of sand. Students will pour water on each mold and determine which one weathered the fastest and watch the water erode the dirt or sand.

Final Notes:

While I recommend printing in color and laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale.
