Life Cycle of a Star Activities Packet

(0)
Here is a combined packet of my popular "Life Cycle of a Star" sequencing worksheet, and "Life Cycle of a Star" vocabulary cards. Buy both together and receive an immediate discount! Here are the original descriptions of each: Sequencing Worksheet When I began teaching my Space Unit for Grade 1, I could not find any activities that depicted the star life cycle. We were trying to make connections to previous life cycles we had learned (butterfly, plant). This is a great activity to do with Early Childhood students. This depicts 5 stages of the Star Life Cycle: 1. Stellar Nebula (creation/birth of a star by gases being pulled together). 2. Average Star (when a star is burning brightest and appears yellow). 3. Red Giant (the star is burning off lots of gas, emitting heat so it appears red). 4. Planetary Nebular (gases are escaping the star and it starts getting smaller). 5. White Dwarf (the last phase before a star dies and it grows very small before losing all of its gas). My second language learners loved acting out the start life cycle as well: Pushing hands together and packing them as if they are squeezing the gas together (Stellar Nebula) Putting their hands by their faces with big eyes and smile to "shine" brightly (Average Star) Arms out to their sides and stomping their feet like a giant would (Red Giant) Arms pulling apart from their bodies to simulate the gas leaking out (Planetary Nebula) Shrinking down to the floor to get really small (White Dwarf) I have also included a student sample to help illustrate the different phases. Vocabulary Cards: It has been so popular that I decided to create some vocabulary cards to support this resource. Each card includes the name of the stage in the life cycle, a hand drawn image, as well as a description of what is happening to the star during that particular stage. Print and laminate for durability. Please make sure to rate and leave feedback!

Multiple Intelligences Survey: How Do You Learn?

Multiple Intelligences Survey: How Do You Learn?

(0)
This is a visual survey based on aspects of Howard Gardener's Multiple Intelligences I made for my ESL students to be used at the beginning of the school year. Given a language barrier it was a great tool that gave me insight into how my students like to learn, what materials they like to use, and what their favorite part of school is. While I used this survey for ESL, I feel it can be used for any mainstream/ESL grade level in the primary grades Each student completes the survey by either circling or coloring (whatever is easier depending on your students' abilities), one or more answer for each question. Make sure they understand not to circle every answer, but to pick only the ones that pertain to them. Once the survey is complete, you can use the teacher answer key to understand what the data means and how to effectively use it. I used my surveys to help me differentiate my lessons, how to manage my guided reading and writing more effectively, as well as how to motivate my students to complete their work. It also gave me good ideas about how to set up my seating chart, which students might work well together, and which of my more chatty students might need to be separated. And one extra bonus, this is a GREAT tool when it comes to observations and professional development, and you get asked about why you have differentiated in a particular way!

Word Problem Flow Map
LyndsDive

Word Problem Flow Map

(0)
This is a great resource to use either whole group, small group, independent practice, or assessment. This is a versatile resource; either add a word problem into the blank box at the top, or allow students to create their own word problems. I currently use it in a blank method for my Gifted students to create their own story problems. The design for this flow map is to help students identify the key parts of a word problem. Most students tend to rush through, only looking for numbers and trying to solve an equation without really knowing the full extent of the problem. This flow map requires students to "Explain Your Brain" and work through a word problem in 6 steps. I had great feedback from my students, stating that this resource really helped them to slow down and word through a problem step by step! A great visual tool as well to assist your more visual learners. This packet includes a blank worksheet (either add your own word problem, or let students create their own) and a sample of how I used the worksheet.

Perfect for getting students to start to recognize that foods they eat on a daily basis have different amounts of calories inside them.
Dirty Teeth Experiment Booklet
LyndsDive

Dirty Teeth Experiment Booklet

(0)
This is a 4 page booklet designed around a lesson about keeping teeth clean. Students will make a statement about what will happen to teeth when we don't clean them, and will write a question about the experiment. Then students will each take an egg and coat it with a mixture of crushed cereal and milk or water. The mixture needs to be quite sticky so that it creates a coating on the egg shell. The crushed cereal mixture is to simulate "chewed food" while the egg represents a tooth. Once the egg is coated, students place the egg in a cup or bowl and leave it to dry. This may take about 3-5 days depending on the room temperature, so it is best to start this experiment at the beginning of the week. On the final day, students examine their eggs, and feel what happened to the food (it should have solidified). They then take a toothbrush and try to brush as much of the food off as possible. This should be quite challenging and may require excess force. If some students are too rough, the egg will break, which can simulate tooth decay in real life. Students then complete the rest of the experiment booklet.
