General Science Quick Starts (Science Quick Starts)
The General Science Quick Starts workbook provides warm-up activities that will exercise scientific investigation skills in six broad subject area categories: matter and energy, living things, ecosystems and habitats, astronomy and space sciences, earth science materials, and ancient life. Skills covered in the quick start activities include observing, asking about, understanding, figuring out, doing stuff, and finding out. Each page features two to four quick starts that can be cut apart and used separately. The entire page may also be used as a whole-class or individual assignment.
Success in the high school sciences often hinges on our children's understanding of basic concepts and vocabulary taught in prior years. While textbooks often repeat this information ad nauseum, many kids glaze over when presented with the repetition. Not so with this great refresher series! Providing quick review through short answer activities, fill in the blank, diagrams, matching and more, children will be able to show what they know! Most activities will take less than 10 minutes to complete and presume prior instruction. A great little series (books measure 7x9") to provide a quick review to keep content fresh in the student's memory. Each page includes 2-4 review activities, with the exception of diagramming pages. Answers included. Reproducible for home/classroom use. Secular publisher. 62 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
