As most of y’all know, I LOVE me some science. This is how I introduce science in my classroom. We do this during the first two weeks of school. Of course, I am a little behind, ehem, in posting this. Forgiveness please. J This is pretty much what I did last year but I found this chart on pinterest (if it’s yours, let me know so I can give you credit please) but I tweaked it because I wanted it to be an “I CAN” chart. We read the book What is Science?, which I love. Update: The chart from pinterst was made by Cara Carroll. I love her blog. You can find it here: http://thefirstgradeparade.blogspot.com/2011/09/our-week-in-review.html
Then, I gave each student a small blank piece of paper and had them draw what they think science is. It always makes me laugh because every year there is a more dominant theme. Last year it was tornadoes. This year it’s volcanoes, lol.
Here is a freebie for you to. I created this sheet so students could draw more than one thing if you wanted them to. Most of my students can’t read so writing is a challenge. For students that can’t write the words, they could just draw the pictures. J
We have taught so much already this year in science. I am kinda overwhelmed. I plan on completely and posting more science units in the future because I had trouble coming up with resources to use. We have learned about our senses, energy, force and motion, magnets, and germs, and safety. Next week we will move to relative location. Who know kindergarten was so deep? LOL! Have a great week. Come back tomorrow to grab a fun pumpkin class activity.
Looking for more science fun?
Love and virtual hugs!
