FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Using a Graph to Find Area: A Science Skill Lab for Grades 6-12”

by Amy Brown Science

7th – 12th Grade

 

 

Science Skill Lab: Using a Graph to Find Area

Purpose: In this activity, you will be using a sample of ordinary poster board with uniform thickness to study area. Since the thickness is constant, you can measure the mass and area of rectangular poster board samples and graph the data to find a relationship between mass and area (mass/area). Using the graph, you will then be able to find the unknown area of an irregularly shaped sample of poster board. This is an activity that can be used to teach basic graphing skills as well as the use of basic pieces of lab equipment – the ruler and the balance.

Materials needed: Balance, 4 samples of poster board of regular shape, 1 irregular sample, graph paper, ruler, pencil.

Your download will include Title, Purpose, Introduction, Materials, Safety Precautions, Procedure, Analysis Questions, Student Data Pages, Answers to all Questions, and Teacher Preparation Notes.

Sentences – Grammar Circles for easy and effective grammar

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Sentences-Grammar-Circles-for-easy-and-effective-grammar-2110090

 

Sentences – Grammar Circles for easy and effective grammar

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach grammar in a creative and meaningful way. No more boring grammar. grammar

Simplify your life and make grammar fun and effective.

One of the biggest challenges I had in my English classes was how to fit in grammar with everything else I had to teach. I would give students grammar pages and then we would correct them together. It was tedious and it took forever! What’s more is that students were not learning the way I wanted them to. They wouldn’t apply what they had learned from the grammar pages and activities.

I found a solution!

Grammar Circles. Grammar Circles are very similar to literature circles in the sense that students are teaching one another grammar. It is a fun and functional way to teach and learn grammar. Although, this may be done individually, it can also be completed as a group where students, through a specific process outlined in the package, teach one another grammar. They also correct the work together, so the teacher has very little to do.

The package includes:

1) A Student Packet – which contains the Literature Circle directions, the notes, directions, and activities, and a “Mark Calculation” page to keep track of their marks. (16 pages)
Activities included focus on:
-the logistics of the sentence (the basic parts)
-the prepositional phrase
-the adjective phrase
-the adverb phrase
-the verbal phrase
-the appositive phrase
-the independent and subordinate clauses
-subjects and predicates
-fragments
-run-on sentences
-types of sentences

2) A teacher Guide with easy to follow instructions on how to organize the Grammar Circles.

3) The Answer Key – devised to allow students to correct their own work and learn from one another.

For those who are from Ontario, Canada – this unit adheres to the Grade 9 English Curriculum (academic). The unit can be taught in any grade to about sentences.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Evaluate the teacher”

by Alicia Lykins

3rd – 10th Grade

 

 

Wouldn’t your kids have fun giving YOU a grade?

This is a quick form for kids to fill out letting you know how they feel about how the class is going. It gives them a chance to feel like their voice is being heard and gives us a chance to hear from those kids that may not always speak up. Plus it is a great way to find out about the climate of your classroom and allows us to step back and re evaluate our procedures and practices.
