This document contains questions that follow along with the movie, The Lorax. Questions are mostly science related, and aligned with the 5th grade TEKS. Questions cover the following topics: Carbon dioxide/Oxygen Cycle, State of Matter, Force,
This assignment is aligned to match the Texas SE 5.6C. The students first do a matching of vocabulary then look at 10 different images of light rays to determine if it is reflection, refraction, or absorption. This a perfect homework assignment, or
This assignment includes a page with 24 different circuit pictures, some are simple circuits, some parallel and series circuits, some with insulators, and conductors. Students will use this picture page along with an answer document (also included)
These questions are designed to be answered while students are watching Finding Nemo. They are mostly science related with a couple of english language arts questions thrown in. The questions are aligned with 5th grade TEKS and include the following
This was created as a review lesson, but could be used as an introductory discovery lesson. This is a power point lesson over Texas TEK 4.8A Weather Predictions. Students will use their inference skills and previous knowledge to observe weather data
This product includes 13 insect life cycle cards. Each insect includes picture cards and text cards for each stage in that insects life cycle. There are 7 incomplete metamorphosis life cycles and 6 complete metamorphosis. Teacher instructions are
This is a homework assignment I created to review climate and weather vocabulary. It also includes several opportunities for students to predict the weather (Texas SE 4.8A) and also includes opportunities to differentiate between weather and climate
This product covers Texas TEK 3.9C (Interactions of living and nonliving organisms).
In this activity students will sort 24 organism cards into a T-chart of living and nonliving. Then they will pick organisms that are both living and explain
I created a Cootie Catcher or Fortune Teller (depending on what your students call it) to help my students review the Texas TEK 4.8C (Observing patterns in tides, seasons, shadows, and moon phases). I thought I'd share it with all of you as well!! I
This is a movie guide to the movie Wreck it Ralph. The questions are mostly science centered, and align with 5th grade TEKS. It include the following topics: Forms of energy, conductors/inslators, freezing point, density, reflection/refraction,
This a worksheet created to go along with the movie WALL-E. It reviews the carbon dioxide/oxygen cycle, natural resources, recycling, forms of energy, and living and nonliving organisms. I used this as a lead into my recycling unit, and ended with
This was a homework assignment created to review my students on natural resources including fossil fuels and their formation as well as the different forms of alternative energy. This is Texas SE 4.7C, 5.7A, and 5.7C. It consists of vocabulary
This is a lab with 6 stations: Mass, Volume, Relative Density, Magnetism, Weight, and Solubility. Students will practice finding volume, mass, and weight. They will get to test different substances for magnetism, solubility, and relative density.
Students will show their understanding of what the molecules look like for each state of matter. They will show if thermal energy needs to be added or taken away for the following phase changes: evaporation, freezing, melting, and condensation. This
