What's inside this science bundle?
The Back-To-School Science Bundle Includes:
- Lab Safety
- Scientific Method and Identifying Variables
- How to Write a CER and CER practice
- CER Task Cards
- Identifying the Criteria and Constraints
- Science and Engineering Practices
- Science Root Words
- Metric System Crossword Puzzle
- Bell Ringers Review Science Skills
This bundle kicks off with a unit on lab safety. Lab safety is the most important part of any experiment. This unit includes a slide show on lab safety, a strategic notetaking guide, a sorting activity, 8 safety rule cards, a crossword puzzle, and a lab safety contract for students to sign.
Students will learn everything they need to know about lab safety in an engaging way!
The Scientific Method and Identifying Variables
The next unit in this bundle s on the scientific method and using variables to plan a fair test experiment. Students will learn about the scientific method, independent variables, dependent variables, and control variables. They will learn how to make a hypothesis and how to write a conclusion. This resource is a great introduction to the scientific method. Students will use a planning page to plan their own investigation.
- Slide Show on Scientific Method and Variables
- Strategic Notetaking Guide
- Suggested Schedule
- Lesson Plan
- Planning Pages
- Follow-up pages
- A flipbook
- Answer Keys
The next unit included covers CER. Students will learn to write a CER, Claim-Evidence-Reasoning responses and make scientific arguments based on evidence. Students will look at text evidence and evidence from images, diagrams, and graphs. Students will write a claim in response to a question, identify evidence and provide reasoning. Specific pages are provided with less text and easier topics for differentiation and other specific pages are provided with more complex topics for challenging students who need to be challenged.
CER Task Cards
The next part of this bundle is these CER task cards. These are perfect for practicing and honing the CER skills learned in the previous unit. The task cards come in both color and blackline. Answer keys are included!
Elaine T gave these cards five stars! “Great CER task cards. My students benefitted from this practice activity and I love how nice these cards look.”
Identifying the Criteria and Constraints in Engineering
Every scientist needs experience identifying criteria and constraints. This next unit is excellent for STEM Engineering. Students will learn about criteria and constraints and will identify them in three engineering challenges and in several engineering scenarios. Students will compare two engineering solutions to see how well they meet the criteria and constraints.
Science and Engineering Practices Task Cards
This great set of printable task cards is perfect to introduce students to science and engineering practices. Students will learn about the eight science and engineering practices and students will practice with each science and engineering practice. These practices are an important part of science.
Science Root Words
Do you want your students to understand science root words in order to decode science vocabulary? This next unit includes an introduction to root words, prefixes, and suffixes as well as six practice pages on root words and their affixes. Students will learn to recognize the common root words and their meanings. This will make them better readers and help with comprehension, especially in science class.
Metric System Crossword Puzzle
Another important skill for scientists to have is an understanding of the metric system. This metric system crossword is a great way to review metric system terms!
Science Review Bellringers
Finally are these bellringers to review science concepts like lab safety, variables, ad the metric system? These bell ringers can be used as a quick review of science concepts and as conversation starters. This set includes Lab Safety, Variables, Scientific Investigation, and the International System of Measurement (Metric System). There are 50 bellringers in the slide show presentation. Answer sheets in a variety of formats are included. Answer keys for each warm-up are included. These are perfect to keep your students science skills in tip top shape for the whole year!
