FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “NGSS Physical Science Review Puzzles and Skill Boosters”

by Ratelis Science

6th – 8th Grade

A free sample of three different puzzle worksheets from my sets of Next Genertion Science Standards review puzzles for middle school physical science that have students practice critical thinking skills and apply concepts from DOK level 1 and 2 needed to grapple with the performance expectations for NGSS MS-PS-2-2, NGSS MS-PS-3-1 and NGSS MS-PS-1-1

Great for stations, homework, early finishers or emergency sub plans.

FREE Sample Includes these three Puzzles

1) What would you get if you crossed Christmas with St. Patrick’s Day? NGSS PS-1-1

  • This puzzle requires students to use data about the mass and volume of 8 different coins and a data table to determine the letter code for solving the riddle.
  • Students can be expected to know the formula for density and fill it in the provided space or you can give students the formula in advance.
  • 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!:

FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Science Lab Inventory Form”

by Amy Brown Science

3rd – 12th Grade

Science Lab Inventory Form

An organized teacher is a happy teacher! If you are required to turn in a lab inventory each year, this simple form will help you get organized and stay organized.

At my school, we are required to turn in a lab inventory at the end of each and every year. The first year I had to do this, I was a bit overwhelmed by the task. My lab is fairly well equipped, and it took a long time for me to list each item.

Now, several years later, this is a simple and easy task. I keep my lab inventory list in a convenient location in my lab. As the year progresses, I remove consumable items that have been used up, or items that have been broken. When I purchase new supplies, I simply add them to the list as the new items arrive.

This form is just one page of over 100 pages that are included in my “Ultimate Science Teacher Binder of Forms, Organizers and Calendars” which can be viewed by clicking this link.

The lab inventory form is completely editable. You can print out copies and write on them, or you can type directly into the form on your computer.
