Blake's Learning Centres - Science Comprehension and Writing Upper Primary fully supports the new Australian primary Science Curriculum!
This book provides 25 colourful Science Text Cards for each major strand of the Science Curriculum. The texts cover a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction text types. Each Text Card has an Activity Card on the back with comprehension and writing tasks designed to help students engage fully with the texts. The 25 text and activity cards are divided into five sections:
- Biological Sciences
- Chemical Sciences
- Earth & Space sciences
- Physical Sciences
- Science as a Human Endeavour
Students can use these cards to work independently, or in pairs, to develop their comprehension and writing skills. Each Activity Card is also supported by three differentiated photocopiable work sheets which vary in difficulty, a total of 75 photocopiable work sheets. Answers for the Activity Card questions and work sheets are provided for the teacher as well as student activity checklists.
All of the colour pages in this book are designed to be removed and laminated to provide you with a durable classroom resource that can be used for many years.
The CD-ROM can be used to print additional cards or to display the Text & Activity Cards or work sheets to the class on an interactive whiteboard. CD-Rom includes Science and English curriculum correlations for each card.
