Process Skills
I've been working for a while on Science Process Skills.  It's a collection of higher order thinking questions that can be used as test prep materials.
Each question comes with a large teacher page and then a black/white page with 4 questions on each for students.  It's half off for the first day (1/27).
Reminder
A reminder for you...I've been known to put things on sale the first day a product is posted.  If I do, I post on Facebook with that info.

  7. I've been enjoying your blog for some time now. I have been describing your Science Weekly Five to my preservice teachers. I think it's a brilliant way to organize instruction.

    Thanks for all you share!

  11. As a Texas math and science teacher, I have to say my favorite science this year has been in force and energy - rolling a marble down a ramp onto various "floors" - towels, carpet, paper, etc.

  12. I think my favorite activities are any that we do involving space. The students love any that involve food :)

  19. Congratulations on 1000 followers!! An incredible accomplishment!! I love all experiments with my students, but I think the best so far was learning about the different parts of a cell with jello and candy :) The kids loved it... I would LOVE to win, so I am crossing my fingers! I need all the resources I can get!! :) :) Thanks for the opportunity!!

  21. I love building circuits with my students. I truly enjoy giving them components and seeing what they can do without any instruction from me!

  22. My favorite science activity we've done so far is the density experiment we did with water, oil, and corn syrup.

  23. I demonstrate the scientific method by asking "How many Twizzlers will it take to measure the floor?" (no variables, I know) Then I make a HUGE deal out of being specific with the procedure by taking the students literally when they give directions. I love it! And so do the students! Of course, I give them a clean Twizzler to eat later.

  24. I love the water cycle in a jar! My kids wanted to do that activity over and over!

  26. We just finished our first Weekly 5 and my students really enjoyed it. We did the Adaptations one and their favorite was drawing a picture of an animal with adaptations. Thank you!

  27. I purchased your Weekly 5 on Rocks and Fossils. My students love it. I did have to add a computer station because of the number of students in my classroom.

  33. How awesome for you! I love science. My favorite was an experiment that allowed students to see red food drops get warm and rise as green food coloring drops flow along the bottom of the tub of water.

  36. I love your blog. Science is my weak link, but thanks to you, I am finding new and exciting ways to challenge my students. Every year my team has an outdoor educational festival. We gather our three classes and spend the entire day outdoors moving from one exciting station to another. We focus on all curriculum areas. We had our last one right before the Thanksgiving break; my favorite activity was the straw launchers. They had so much fun figuring out the science and math behind launching the straws that they forgot they were learning!

  37. While I've taught 5th grade science for several years, this year I moved to 4th grade. There isn't a LOT of difference in curriculum, but just enough! One pro about it is that it has made me stretch and find other activities and ways to present my information. Thank you for all of the resources! They are so user friendly and fun!

  38. I love the Intro to Science Station. What a great way to start my 5th graders off on their Science adventures

  39. I'm a science nut myself and really enjoy sharing my love of science with my students! Some of my favorite projects have been researching habitats and plant and animal adaptations, growing crystals, and demonstrating the water cycle by growing plants in old soda bottles (also a good way to recycle!).

    I love your science weekly five ideas!!

  40. My favorite science activity I've done with my students was using celery in red water to see how the stem of plants carry water/nutrients to the leaves. SO cool! the kids LOVED it and it didn't take long before we could see how it was working.
