Science Foldables and Journaling

I have accumulated a group of great resources from "Pinterest" that would be great to use as part of the upper level Science class.  In my experience, it is very important to include a visual of every standard that is covered and I am so excited that I was able to find them.  I also linked each picture with the original poster so that you can go see all of the other great pins that each author has to offer.


 
 



Weather Unit - SE5C74 - Distinguish among the various forms of precipitation (rain, snow, sleet, and hail), making connections to the weather in a particular place and time.





Body Systems from Teaching in Room 6





I know, I know, this is not a foldable but this covers soil erosion so well.  I figured we could actually do this experiment and then have them draw it in their journal.  Be sure to scroll down to the language TRANSLATOR below the right column.  :-)

Solar System
SC5E5 - Humans continue to explore Earth's place in space. Gravity and energy influence the formation of galaxies, including our own Milky Way Galaxy, stars, the Solar System, and Earth. Humankind's need to explore continues to lead to the development of knowledge and understanding of our Solar System.




Photosynthesis

Describe and investigate the process of photosynthesis, such as the roles of light, carbon dioxide, water and chlorophyll; production of food; release of oxygen.

  6. I'm really loving these and I know my kids (students) will too! Any way I can get a link to the erosion experiment? That is one area I really need to work on to get my kids interested! I love science but I always find out early in the year from first week activities that there is usually a majority of students that list Science as a subject they like least. :(

  7. This summer I taught 7th/8th grade summer school and really got hooked on foldables so my plan is to integrate them into my ELA classroom this year. I think they will fit right in with my Interactive Notebook idea.... Thanks for the Lovely Blog Award!

  9. Thank you so much for compiling this! I clicked on the soil erosion link and was sad it wasn't in English--and sad I didn't pay better attention in HS Spanish. I think I can figure it out from the picture though!

  11. Thank you for the pop bottle erosion set up! I've been trying to come up with a container to use for this type of lab for weeks. I have 130 kids, so it had to be cheap and accessible. I couldn't think of a
    nything! You are an angel!

  12. Hello Donna, once again thanks for the link ... if it can be useful, I have translated into English the post on soil erosion. There will be some errors, however, it is here http://www.lapappadolce.net/science-experiment-on-soil-erosion/

  13. I am interested on how you did your soil erosion. I can't not get the link to come up it says page not found. Tried to go onto lappappadolce.net also and again it says page not found. If you could send me a link that works that would be great. My email is rhosier@lcsdnv.com thanks Rachel
