FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Plant Cell and Animal Menu Board”

by Texas Science Gal

7th – 10th Grade

In this download you will find a menu similar to what you would find in a restaurant including items such as an appetizer, an entree, side dishes, and deserts. The way this is used, instead of food there are a variety of assignments that students can complete to show their mastery of their understanding of Plant Cells and Animal Cells. Some of the assignments include describing living things, describing the differences between cells, drawing and labeling cells, and creating flash cards.

So to use this, you will need to print out the pages included and students will need to have index cards to use for one of the assignments. The first assignment represents the appetizer (something that people share) because everyone completes it, it. Next the students can pick their entree (similar to ordering one meal), and they can pick just one of those listed assignments. Then with the entree comes two sides which students can then also pick which two of the three. For early finishers there is a desert that is entirely optional (great for extra credit!).

The reason why I made this was because I want students to feel like they have a choice in their assignments. I teach 7th grade and often times they just want the option of getting to choose their assignment. It is a great assignment for homework, amazing for centers (by having some students work on the entree or side dishes), and can also be used as class work.

I am in the process of updating my other menu boards as well to reflect this new and updated look and style, so be sure if you are in my store and want to see others, to click on menu/choice boards on the left hand side to see more.

Also, If you are not receiving updates from my store be sure to click on the green star when you are at my store. This will allow you to follow me and receive emails when I have a sale or post new products.

A Peek Into Learning

By Kathie Yonemura of Tried and True Teaching Tools

For all the grumbling about distance learning (and there is a lot of grumbling!), there are also some perks! I have a love-hate relationship with classroom bulletin boards. They are such a pain to put up, then you have to change them frequently and other than during Open House, no one actually looks at them! Anyone else?

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

For my teacher friends who are torn about going back to school physically, or teaching using a hybrid model, these times are challenging.  If you are someone who HAS to go into your classroom, you are literally risking your life and possibly those around you. You probably stay up many nights tossing and turning over what you should do.  While those of you who teach through distance learning have to acquire new skills, and let’s face it, not all of us are tech savvy. It’s hard enough doing what you all love to do but Covid19 is making it difficult if not impossible for you. So how do you function when feeling emotionally drained and stressed out. In some of my other posts, I’ve mentioned Qigong as a way to relieve stress, there are also homeopathic remedies that may help.

Using Glyphs to Gather Information, Interpret Data and Follow Directions By Vicky Rauch of Scipi

A glyph is a non-standard way of graphing information to tell a story. It is a flexible data representation tool that uses symbols to represent different data. Glyphs are an innovative instrument that shows several pieces of data at once and necessitates a legend or a key to understand the glyph. They require problem solving, communication, and data organization.

Adding sound effects to group or individual Halloween readings incorporates pleasure into reading aloud, often a difficult task for beginning and struggling readers.

  • Coin 4 requires students to use deduction skills to determine the correct volume of the coin.
  • Density is a physical property of matter and is a commonly used as evidence to identify specific types of matter as described in NGSS PS-1-1

2) What movie do teenage ghosts love to watch? NGSS PS3-1-1

  • Halloween Themed (Ghost) puzzle.
  • Questions require students to calculate work, and potential energy using the provided formulas.
  • Also to work with kinetic energy quantitatively (have to determine the new amount of Kinetic Energy if the Mass is halved or doubled while the speed stays the same or if the speed doubles, while the mass stays the same)

3) What do you get when you cross a lizard and a bee? NGSS 2-2

  • Students solve net force diagrams to determine the missing force to put the object into equilibrium (net force = 0N)

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Catch A Bug FREEBIE Game”

by The Dabbling Speechie

Pre-Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

Are you looking for a fun “Spring” reinforcer activity to use with your students? Do your little ones love bugs? Then this fun FREEBIE is just the activity to use to keep your students engaged and learning!! There are two variations to use this activity.

Catch a Bug Game
Directions for version #1: Print the bug jar (page 3) and the blank sheet of bugs (page 4) on card stock and laminate. Adhere velcro on the jar and bugs. Use as a token board or let the students take off a bug after they complete their speech or language target.

Directions for version #2: Print the bug jar (page 3) and the sheet of bugs with numbers (page 5) on card stock and laminate. Use an empty container and place all the bugs in the jar. I put paper clips on the bugs and then we used my magnetic fishing pole to catch bugs and earn points. The student with the most points wins the game!

FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Nature Themed Cootie Catcher! FREEBIE”

by Green Grubs

2nd – 5th Grade

A great introductory activity to a nature based or environmental topic…get silly with this Nature themed Fortune-Teller-Cootie-Catcher!

There are 8 challenges inside the Cootie Catcher (e.g. take nine steps backwards, drop to the ground and freeze until you see an insect! Can you name the insect? Name one thing you could do to help the environment – you can’t say pick up rubbish! Find 5 different types of leaves. Which tree or plant are they from?) This is also a good basic activity for teachers to use at the start of a topic to gauge children’s prior knowledge about general environmental matters— rove around and eavesdrop on their conversations before and during the challenge!

A blank template is also provided so your class can then go on to share their learning by creating their own nature themed cootie catcher…

This activity is also included as part of the following resource – check it out for more in depth learning around this subject!:

Nature Exploration {Outdoor activities celebrating the environment}.

FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Ocean Animals Short Reads (Free Sampler)”

by Growing Smart Readers

3rd – 4th Grade

Read about the Angler Fish, the Clownfish, and the Mimic Octopus! This resource includes informational paragraphs and follow-up questions for vocabulary and sentence writing.

This 3 page sampler contains short factual paragraphs; quick reads… so kids can glean the main facts and key ideas about each animal.

I created these for some of my students who get too stressed when they see long passages. Having less complex text makes it easier for them to read and feel successful.

Use them for independent work, center work, or as a supplement to a unit study on the ocean or ocean animals. These are especially great for summer school or after school mini lessons.

ELA Common Core Standards are listed for second and third grade level expectations.

Consider the priced version if your students were successful with this sampler.

The new complete set of Ocean Animals Short Reads is now at: Ocean Animals Short Reads (Informational Passages)
