Unfortunately, with the large demands on reading and math from Common Core, science is often pushed to the side. If your district is like mine, you often have very little time to dedicate to science, yet are still expected to fully cover the entire curriculum. This packet was created to help save time and to cover the important science concepts - while still meeting the nonfiction criteria of Common Core.
In this packet you will find a mini-book for students to assemble and explore the critical science concepts of volcanoes. It can be used to teach, reinforce, and/or challenge students, all while meeting their needs and learning styles. The reading page has been differentiated for your students with one being a higher level (HL) and the other being a lower level (LL).
The tabs in this booklet can be used as science stations. The first tab contains an important vocabulary activity related to the science concept of volcanoes and corresponds with the reading piece provided. The second tab asks comprehension questions related to the reading piece and requires students to support their answers with textual evidence. The third tab focuses on an investigation to deepen the understanding of volcanoes. The fourth tab asks students to draw while the fifth tab prompts students to respond to a thought-provoking journal question.

I scoured Educents today, hoping to find the perfect lesson plan to use with our new erupting volanco. I'm so glad I found this! My kids are in 2nd and 5th grade and this booklet was perfect for all of them! Very kid friendly, fun illustrations, great layout, easy to use, printed perfectly--it had everything I needed including info on volcanoes and a recipe. Highly recommend this product and others by the seller!

I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelors in Science degree and an elementary education certificate. I am certified to teach K-8 Self-Contained and Middle School Science. I have taught ever since graduation,with most of my experience in 5th grade. I'm currently completing my Masters program in Differentiation. I utilize a lot of differentiated strategies along with the workshop model in reading, writing, math, and sometimes science. I love more hands-on activities that are related to real life for students to explore. I'm not a huge fan of worksheets, but do use them occasionally.
