    Graphic Organizers, Interactive Journals, and Lapbook
    Over 20 pages of resources to use in this section! See preview for example of lapbook, or use the pages in your interactive science journals.

    Over a dozen experiments are highlighted in this resource! Some have an experiment-specific lab sheet, others you may use one of the two generic lab sheets included or your science journals to record notes and observations.

    Three assessments are included. All assessments have two levels. Use the one that works best for your students, or use one as a follow-up comprehension page to the reading material and the other as a formal assessment.

    I have marked this as appropriate for Grades 2-5; the reading passages will probably be challenging for most second graders and some third graders, but they can be read aloud or with partners. The content itself is appropriate and comprehensible for grades 2-3, but I wanted to make sure it is clear that the passages are not meant for independent reading.

    Supports NGSS
    2-PS1-1, 2-PS1-4, 5-PS1-1

    Science fun!

    I'm using this product as the backbone for a summer science unit! We are exploring States of Matter through hands on experiments and this is just the right amount of information to handle and still keep the unit light and fun! Very handy.

As a former engineer and current homeschooling parent, I love creating fun and practical-life math units as well as hands-on math and science experiments! You can read about some of the experiments and activities we've done on my momgineer blog, or like my Facebook page for updates. I have two very curious home learners that keep me on my toes constantly creating new activities and games, as this is how they best learn. I primarily create these materials for them for our homeschool classroom, but I have also created units for other homeschooling families.
