This book of warm-ups can be used in a variety of ways! It’s great to use throughout the year or can serve as a review. Like we all know, things change day to day so this book is set up to be flexible. You can use a warm-up each day, double up some days, or skip days or weeks using a warm-up altogether!
For me, the warm-ups work best when we go over them at some point, either at the end of the week or each day. The students seem to get more meaning from the warm-ups that way and it can provide the basis for a great science discussion!
The answer key is not the end all, be all authority to the best answers to the warm-up questions, but can be used to help guide you and students. As we know, students often provide reasonable answers other than what we may be looking for and have proof to back up their answers. We should always encourage that! Some of the key is suggested answers or just simply stating that answers may vary.
