For Those About To Rock…

I have been diligently working on this pack for what feels like FORVER…and I finally got to try it out with my class last week and I have to say, it ROCKED! (excuse the pun…but this pack is full of them!) Ok, so the title sort of dates me…a little shout out to all those AC/DC fans out there. You can find the pack {here}

Introducing Earth Science Interactive Notebooks - Plate Tectonics from Nitty Gritty Science!

Plate Tectonics Interactive Notebook - Distance Learning

PLATE TECTONICSIntroducing the first chapter in the Earth Science Interactive Notebook Series: Plate Tectonics. Each chapter in the series will showcase many activities for the students (both middle and high school) to process the information given by teachers. The engaging activities vary to enabl...

Science Vocabulary Strategy: Acrostic

Science Vocabulary Strategy: Acrostic

One of the things my students have enjoyed in the past is creating an acrostic with one of the science vocabulary words. It challenges them to think of new ways to describe a word by having a speci…

Really cool lesson about the Rock Cycle using Sugar cubes! This website has so many different experiments that teachers can use to demonstrate different concepts in science! This activity aligns with the NYS Science Standards 1 & 4. However, the website aligns with the all of the NYS Science Standards. Teaching Standard 2 Element II.1, II.2, II.3, II.5, II.6, Standard 3 Element III.1, III.2, III.3, III.4, III.5, Standard IV.2

Science Matters

This post is the fifth in a series of posts about a CSI program I ran at our library. You can read the background information here and here and here and here. For Day 4 we performed the dirt analysis. It was fairly straight-forward and completed without much fanfare. The students once again enjoyed taking the information they collected and comparing it to the map that was provided and then matching up that information with what they found in the suspect bios. Day 5 was DNA analysis day. We…

I distribute different types of rocks to students and instruct them to complete this graphic organizer. They draw their rock and describe its properties (color, luster, streak, hardness, break, and texture).

Properties of Rocks and Minerals Graphic Organizer

Students who are visual and/or kinesthetic, hands-on learners will love learning about rocks and minerals with this graphic organizer! I distribute different types of rocks to my students. I then instruct my students to draw their rocks and describe the properties (color, luster, streak, hardness, ...

The Rock Cycle Cootie Catcher

The Rock Cycle Cootie Catcher

It is my hope that this is not only addictive for your students, but addictive for you as well! Cootie catchers (or fortune tellers) are a great way to "trick" your students into learning without them even knowing it. Concepts in science are based around students first understanding the vocabulary a...

Rock Cycle Bracelets. Also has a link for an interactive rock cycle for the whiteboard.

Rock Cycle

Today we learned about the rock cycle. At first glance the rock cycle looks a bit overwhelming. Breaking down the rock cycle has helped us understand that rocks change over time. Today we made rock cycle bracelets to help us remember the 3 types of rocks (Sedimentary, Metamorphic & Igneous) and to help us understand how heat, pressure & erosion play into the transformation of rocks. See if we can tell you what each bead represents. (Shiny brown Sedimentary, Orange- Magma/heat transforming…

Rock Cycle Reader's Theater

The Rock Cycle Reader's Theater

A fun way to act out the rock cycle! This reader's theater contains 20 speaking parts that explain the process that a rock goes through in the rock cycle. Students will not only be able to define sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks but they will also learn science vocabulary such as weatheri...

This is the infographic I give to my students to help them associate the characteristics of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks with actual photographs and diagrams of each rock type. I find it most useful to print in color. This is a great study tool for the rocks and minerals station for the lab practical on the New York State Earth Science Regents Exam.Note to Customer:Click on the above to follow my store.
