In the meantime, I have a much smaller scale unit that I just did with my class for Sink and Float. I'm just testing the waters (pun intended) with this one.
This unit will take you anywhere from 6-8 days depending on the time you have for science. I currently have it listed for 40% off. Head on over and grab it now! We had so much fun with this little Will it Sink or Float? Elementary STEM Unit... I hope you like it!
Also this past month we got to do one of my favorite math activities of the year.... Geo Panes from my Common Core Geometry Unit.
|First we build and record. I use gum drops I find at my local grocery store. They hold up great in the soapy water.|
|Students choose which shape they want to dip into the water.|
|As you can see, it creates these great panes of flat bubbles for the faces of the shape.|
I've recently updated this unit, I added a template for creating my dear friend Miss Poly Gon for you and a smaller version for your class. You can also just get the template for her if you don't want the whole unit--How to Make Miss Poly Gon
|Here's my Too cool For school partner.|
|This year for Red Ribbon week we had a decorate your door contest. My sister created these adorable graphics and i just love them. I decided to use my Candy Corn in Disguise. "I mustache you to be healthy"|
|Here is something easy and FREE. After reading several Pete the Cat books, I decided to do a directed drawing with my students. Using the document camera I walked the class through the drawing step by step. They then wrote to describe him.|
As we head on into November, we will begin learning about the Pilgrims and Native Americans. I think it's important for my firsties to understand how life long ago, children long ago, etc... are different than things are today. I created this unit to help my students compare and contrast differences and similarities between themselves and Native American and Pilgrim Children. There are a variety of Venn Diagrams and Double-Bubble Maps to choose from, depending on your preference.
