Earth Science Reading Comprehension Passages and Questions Bundle ~These ready-to-use pages are an effective way to provide your students with regular science practice. They can be used with teacher support while your students are learning the topic and independently once they have mastered the basics. Common Core State Standards: Rl.3.1, Rl.3.3, Rl.3.4, Rl.3.7, Rl.3.10, Rl.4.1, Rl.4.3, Rl.4.4, Rl.4.7, Rl.4.10, CCRA.R.1, CCRA.R.10. This product includes a range of topics for Earth Science. Part 1 - Properties of Earth Materials Lesson 1: Earth materials are solid rocks and soils, water, and the gases of the atmosphere. Lessons 2-5: The varied materials have different physical and chemical properties, which make them useful in different ways. For example, as building materials, as sources of fuel, or for growing the plants we use as food. Lesson 5: Soils have properties of color and texture, capacity to retain water and the ability to support the growth of many kinds of plants, including those in our food supply. Part 2 - Changes in the Earth and Sky Lessons 1-2: The surface of the earth changes. Some changes are due to slow processes such as erosion or weathering, and some changes are due to rapid processes, such as landslides, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes. Lessons 3-4: Weather changes from day to day and over the seasons. Weather can be described by measurable quantities, such as temperature, wind direction and speed, and precipitation. Lesson 5: Objects in the sky have patterns of movement. The sun, for example, appears to move across the sky in the same way every day, but its path changes slowly over the seasons. The moon moves across the sky on a daily basis much like the sun. The observable shape of the moon changes from day to day in a cycle that lasts about a month. Part 3 - Objects in the Sky Lesson 1: The sun, moon, stars, clouds, birds and airplanes all have properties, locations, and movements that can be observed and described. Lesson 2: The sun provides the light and heat necessary to maintain the temperature of the earth. Includes 13 Lessons on 65 Pages with Full Answer Keys.

This product includes a range of topics for Physical, Life & Earth Sciences. Physical Science Part I - Properties of Objects & Materials Lesson 1: Objects have many observable properties including size, weight, shapes, color, temperature, and the ability to react with other substances. Lesson 2: Those properties can be measured using tools, such as rulers, balances and thermometers. Lesson 3: Objects are made of one or more materials, such as paper, wood and metal. Objects can be described by the properties of the materials from which they are made, and those properties can be used to separate or sort a group of objects or materials. Lesson 4: Materials can exist in different states - solid, liquid and gas. Lesson 5: Some common materials, such as water can be changed from one state to another by heating or cooling. Part 2 - Position & Motion of Objects. Lesson 1: The position of an object can be described by locating it relative to another object or the background. Lesson 2: The position and motion of objects can be changed by pushing or pulling. The size of the change is related to the strength of the push or pull. Lesson 3: Sound is produced by vibrating objects. Lesson 4: The pitch of the sound can be varied by changing the rate of vibration. Part 3 - Light, Heat, Electricity & Magnetism. Lesson 1: Light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object. Light can be reflected by a mirror, refracted by a lens, or absorbed by the object. Lesson 2: Heat can be produced in many ways, such as burning, rubbing or mixing one substance with another. Heat can move from one object to another by conduction. Lesson 3: Electricity in circuits can produce light, heat, sound and magnetic effects. Lesson 4: Electrical circuits require a complete loop through which an electrical current can pass. Lesson 5: Magnets attract and repel each other and certain kinds of other materials. Life Science Part 1 - Characteristics of Organisms Lesson 1: Organisms have basic needs. For examples, animals need air, water and food; plants require water, air, nutrients and light. Lesson 2: Organisms can survive only in environments in which their needs can be met. The world has many different environments and district environments support the life of different types of organisms. Lessons 3-6: Each plant or animal has different structures that serve different functions in growth, survival and reproduction. Lessons 6-7: The behavior of individual organisms is influenced by internal cues (such as hunger) and by external cues (such as a change in the environment). Lesson 8: Humans and other organisms have senses to help them detect internal and external cues. Part 2 - Life Cycles of Organisms Lessons 1 & 2: Plants and animals have life cycles that include being born, developing into adults, reproducing and eventually dying. The details of this life cycle are different for different organisms. Lesson 3: Plants and animals closely resemble their parents. Many characteristics of an organism are inherited from parents of the organism, but other characteristics result from an individual’s interactions with the environment. Part 3 - Organisms & Environments Lesson 1: All animals depend on plants. Some animals eat plants for food. Other animals eat animals that eat the plants. An organism’s patterns for behavior are related to the nature of that organism’s environment. This includes the kinds and numbers of other organism’s present, the availability of food and resources, and the physical characteristics of the environment. When the environment changes, some plants and animals survive and reproduce, and others die and move to new locations. Lesson 2: All organisms cause changes in the environment where they live.
