Units and lessons follow a consistent format. Units begin with a short introduction that provides vocabulary, and materials needed; a coloring page and a unit "wrap-up" assessment are also included.
Individual lessons include a "Teaching Time" section and a "Hands-On Time" section. The "teaching time" section includes a conversational lesson to read, after which students complete a "daily reading sheet." Students will also review lessons, make flashcards, list vocabulary words in their science notebook, and read any supplemental reading chosen. The "hands-on" time features fun learning opportunities and a "Checking It Out" science experiments form to complete.
Students will maintain a science notebook where they can keep track of daily reading sheets, "Checking it Out" lab forms, and other work.
This book features 35 lessons, each designed to take approximately one week. If taught twice per week (reading during one science period, activities during the other) lessons will take approximately 60-90 minutes each day. One-year curriculum. Grades 3-6, though content may be scaled for younger students and for those looking for more work. Answer key provided; line-listed. Extensive book and resource list with appropriate grade levels also included.
