Finding Science in An American Childhood by Annie Dillard
Students read excerpts from Annie Dillard's memoir, "An American Childhood," with the teacher. They experience opportunities to connect English, science, nature and art together from a new and unique perspective. This approach serves as a new avenue point into science.
Science Safety is Elementary
Third graders explore the tenets of science class safety. In this science procedures activity, 3rd graders determine their body parts that need to be protected in various classroom situations. Students observe safety equipment and complete a safety table worksheet regarding their safety practices discussions.
Student And Teacher Behaviors In Science Classrooms
Students work in cooperative learning groups and respond to cases involving ethical choices by students and teachers in science classrooms. They create and submit additional cases and questions for use throughout the school year.
Science Vocabulary game
Play a memory game with science vocabulary words to prepare for an upcoming test! Build both understanding and retention of new vocabulary words by setting up a matching game for your learners to play in small groups of three to five. Vocabulary words are written on some cards, and definitions are written on the others. The player flips two cards over, and if they match, they take the pair. If they don't, both cards get flipped back over and placed back in their spots. Who will win?
Using Dialogue Journals in Support of Science Instruction
Learners build a dialog journal within their science class. They develop written responses to questions asked by the teacher in a journal notebook. Teachers have the responsibility to read and respond to student responses.
Coal Science Fair Ideas
Learners select one of the ideas for a science project reflecting their knowledge about coal. They then choose a catchy title to spark interest that describes their project. They use the scientific method to explain the process.
Careers in science and careers that support scientific research
Examine some of the occupations which relate to science. Work in small groups of four. Group A is given a copy of a daily television guide to highlight all the television programs that have a science or mathematics focus. Group B is given the first six pages of a newspaper to read articles and record how many have a scientific or mathematical focus or connection. Groups C is given a copy of the Job Guide and list jobs that are science-related or analytical in nature.
Science as a Career
In this science as a career worksheet, students choose a scientist and fill out the research form. Students make a poster and present a speech using the created poster as a visual aid.
In this drawing in science worksheet, students read about what is needed to complete a drawing in order to communicate ideas and discoveries in science. Students analyze a drawing of a volcano and indicate the problems with the drawing. They also practice drawing a ladybug and label it's body parts.
Life Science: Classifying Life with Vocabulary
Practice vocabulary using words from life science. Pupils read new words associated with life science but must guess the definition. They get to discuss their initial definitions after receiving the dictionary definitions on a worksheet. This is designed to have a quiz at the end.
Life Science: Animal Systems
Students explore the importance of life science vocabulary words. In this life science vocabulary words lesson, students understand that it is necessary to understand the vocabulary. Students create a word wall and fill in the blank assessments.
Yeast Guided Inquiry Science Experiment
Young scholars investigate the six properties of yeast. In this inquiry science lesson plan, students experiment with yeast by testing its interactions with other materials and making observations.
Science Fair Frenzy
Pupils examine the steps for developing science fair projects. They visit stations where they examine posters, books, and paper that describe how to research and design a science fair project. Additionally, they take notes on how to develop a project.
Third Grade Science
In this science worksheet, 3rd graders answer multiple choice questions about measurement, plants, water, fossils, and more. Students complete 25 questions.
For this earth science worksheet students complete a series of multiple choice and short answer questions on the different moon phases, gravitational pull and the earths layers.
What is Science?
