FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “FREE Identifying Independent and Dependent Variables BOOM Cards”

by The Science Vault
6th – 8th Grade

Students will get great practice on the scientific method and experimental design skills with these 8 Boom Cards. Great for online, hybrid, or blended learning and integrates easily with Google Classroom, Schoology Powerschool, and Canvas. Interactive, easy to use, and no prep – PLUS students get immediate feedback on their answers!

Eight unique research questions ask students to identify either the independent or the dependent variable. Appropriate for any middle school class or even as a quick review for 9th graders. These Boom Cards are a great way to reinforce concepts quickly – students enjoy the interactivity and teachers can use them as a meaningful activity for some students while working in a small group with others. Great way to have a break-out room with a smaller group of students while knowing that the rest of your students are guided through meaningful work with these cards. The immediate feedback is so helpful for students who are still a bit unsure of the concepts!

FULL SET AVAILABLE HERE: I have a full set of 24 cards if you like these and want more. You can find them here: Identifying Independent and Dependent Variables

ABOUT BOOM CARDS: To use Boom Cards, you must be connected to the Internet. Boom Cards play on modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge). Apps are available for Android, iPads, iPhones, and Kindle Fires. For security and privacy, adults must have a Boom Learning account to use and assign Boom Cards. You will be able to assign the Boom Cards you are buying with “Fast Pins,” (play provides instant feedback for self-grading Boom Cards). Fast Play is always free and a great way for students to engage with Boom Cards decks. For additional assignment options, you’ll need a premium account. If you are new to Boom Learning, you will be offered a free trial of our premium account. Read here for details: http://bit.ly/BoomTrial.

USING BOOM CARDS IN YOUR LMS: You can use Boom Cards in Google Classroom™, Schoology, Canvas, Powerschool and more! CLICK HERE to find out how!

Spelling Flip Book

Description

The Spelling Flip Book is designed to help young learners become familiar with spelling rules and to incorporate them into their work.

Students can color and personalize their flip books to enhance the spelling learning experience.

I always like encouraging my students to use their flip books as reference sheets when they are working to promote good spelling habits. The goal is that eventually, by using the flipbook when working, the student will begin to remember common errors made in the past and correct them. I have had much success with this strategy in my classes.

I’ve also included a color copy and an answer key – a total of 18 pages.

Free Group and Skit Evaluation Rubric

Description

Group work is always tricky to evaluate because there is so much going on. In addition, as educators, we are required to give detailed feedback on students’ performances.

I created this FREE document to make the teacher’s job easier, and to allow students to be responsible for their success as well.

Self-evaluation grids are a great way to guide students in their evaluations. Students will know exactly what is expected of them and will be made responsible for their success. This package can also easily be changed to be used as peer evaluations.

This self-evaluation grid will help students as well as teachers to assess students’ group work. When students use this grid to assess their work, there are no surprises when they receive their final mark. This grid, in particular, allows the students to become organized and responsible for their individual parts.

These self-evaluation grids are also very helpful to teachers:

❒ Helps the teacher justify the final mark;

❒ Helps to identify students’ weaknesses and strengths;

❒ Helps parents and students better understand the task required;

❒ Helps teachers create rubrics for the final evaluation.

Because of formatting issues, this package was created in a PDF document, but I can easily email you a Word file to be easily modified and changed according to the individual teacher’s needs.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Solving Proportions Paper Chain Activity”

by Blue Mountain Math
6th – 10th Grade

Looking for a fun activity that is self=checking, collaborative and practices solving proportions? This is a set of 15 problems that need to be cut apart, reassembled in the correct order and fastened together like a chain until the end is reached.

Each of the links has an equation and an answer to another problem. Students will need to solve for x and then find the answer on another strip. Students can either line up the strips in order before fastening together or attach as they go.

Students begin with the link marked start and continue until they are out of links. If students are struggling, teacher can let students know which is the last link. This is a great warm up to review before a quiz. Works well with partners or a group of 3.

Each of the links also have a letter, teacher can quickly identify student progress by using the check word/phrase . Or teacher can look at the links in order.

To finish the lesson, use the included exit cards, which can be randomly assigned to students to check their understanding. If students have never completed a paper chain before, then having a sample they can see (not look at to see the order) helps them understand what the finished product will look like,

Included:

✂Answer Key

✂3 pages of student “chains”

✂18 exit cards

✂Teacher Directions

✂Worksheet for student calculations because showing work in Math Class is always good ☺

Free: Group and Skit Evaluation Rubric

Description

Group work is always tricky to evaluate because there is so much going on. In addition, as educators, we are required to give detailed feedback on students’ performances.

I created this FREE document to make the teacher’s job easier, and to allow students to be responsible for their success as well.

Self-evaluation grids are a great way to guide students in their evaluations. Students will know exactly what is expected of them and will be made responsible for their success. This package can also easily be changed to be used as peer evaluations.

This self-evaluation grid will help students as well as teachers to assess students’ group work. When students use this grid to assess their work, there are no surprises when they receive their final mark. This grid, in particular, allows the students to become organized and responsible for their individual parts.

These self-evaluation grids are also very helpful to teachers:

❒ Helps the teacher justify the final mark;

❒ Helps to identify students’ weaknesses and strengths;

❒ Helps parents and students better understand the task required;

❒ Helps teachers create rubrics for the final evaluation.

Because of formatting issues, this package was created in a PDF document, but I can easily email you a Word file to be easily modified and changed according to the individual teacher’s needs.
