Great review for a vital skill.
And it's free.
Critical thinking, problem solving, and data analysis. These are terms we hear all the time as teachers of science. Let's get right to the point: We cannot stress these skills enough in our classes. We must teach our science students to be great thinkers and problem solvers! Activities that provide practice in the skills of science should be used often in our classes, and not just at the beginning of the school year. Set aside some time in your class throughout the year to review, reinforce and practice important science skills.
To that end, I would like to provide you with an excellent activity that you can use at any time in your science class.
This blog post is part of the Secondary Smorgasbord Monthly Blog Hop Event. As you can see, the theme for this month is "All Treats and No Tricks for Teachers." All of the participants are providing you with awesome free teaching materials for you and your students. Be sure to check out the link up at the end of this post.
Thanks to Darlene Anne Curran (The ELA Buffet) and Pamela Kranz (Desktop Learning Adventures) for hosting our monthly blog hop event!
Add this free activity on graphing and data analysis to your teaching arsenal. The activity covers many important skills: Informational text reading, data tables, graphing data, the scientific method, and data analysis. The students will graph the data that is given in the reading, and complete a page of thought provoking questions about the data.
This activity is timeless. I love that I can use this activity at the beginning of the school year to teach scientific graphing, but I can also use it at the end of the year for preparation for end of course testing. Be sure to download this free "treat", as well as the others seen in the linky below.
