science tools

Early in September I introduced my students to what is a scientist and the tools a scientist uses. Here are some of the activities we did. All of the activities can be found in my science tools unit. One of our very first entries into our science journal was to illustrate what a scientist does.
Our science word wall
Some great books to read
We completed this bubble map after reading the book What is a scientist?
This science reader is in my unit. We used it to practice reading left to right and tracking words.
For this science journal entry the kids drew the science tool underneath the flap.

Leaf Man

For a science lesson we read Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert. Earlier in the year we learned about what scientists do? We talked about how scientists observe. We used hand lenses to observe leaves and then recorded our findings. The recording sheet is from Kathryn Warner. Get it here.

needs and wants

We just wrapped up our unit on needs and wants. We discussed the types of homes that people live in all over the world. Then we discussed how people get what they want or need.
We read Houses and Homes by Ann Morris and completed the reader's response sheet.
Then we read A House Is a House for Me by Mary Ann Hoberman and completed the reader's response craftivity.
 All of the activities can be found here.
