I start by reading, What Is Science? It is a wonderful book that is totally worth buying. If you had the ELA Journeys adoption, you should have gotten the big book. Anywho, we read this book and discussed everything about science.
When we are done, I give each student a 1/4 sheet of white copy paper and they go back to their seats to draw “what is science” to them. They did a great job! We had volcanoes, stars, wind, a “crazy tornado”, butterflies, well you get my drift. I think our Interactive Writing chart turned out great. We put this in our Science center on the wall to reference all year. They love looking at their own work! J
Here is a closer view. Isn’t it cute?
Well, that's all folks…for now! What are some fun ways you teach science? We are starting our Science Journals this week so I will be posting the pics soon. Have a fantabulous day blogger buddies!!
