Beginning Shadow Unit

(0)
These pages are meant to help introduce the changing lengths of shadows to children. I have included 2 versions of a Shadow investigation- measuring the length of someone’s shadow several times during the day and over several days to see patterns in the length. One version follows the Scientific Method using the words: Question, Materials, Procedure, Data/Observations, Conclusion and Further Questions. The other is a simple one page investigation with room for observations and questions to answer. There are 12 pictures with shadows to sort into 2 Headings: Shadows Near Noon and Shadows in the Morning or Afternoon (based on the length of the shadow). There is a student worksheet with pictures to cut out and put in the correct column. These are the same pictures as in the Shadow Sort. There is a Shadow Web in which the children can write what they have learned about shadows. (10 pages in all) Thanks! SDH Creations

Magic Tree House Book 17: Tonight on the Titanic Reading Comprehension Packet

(0)
This is a Reading Comprehension packet to go along with the Magic Tree House Book #17: Tonight on the Titanic. I have used it with First and Second grade students. There is a cover page to make each student a packet, along with a comprehension page for each chapter. There is a page to preview the book and a page at the end for the students' thoughts on the book. I have used the packet with both a small group of students and with a whole class at one time. You can differentiate when you use the packet. The more independent students can work on the book and packet on their own or with a partner, while you work with the students who need more direction and help. In the packet, I have included different types of reading comprehension questions and activities, such as Text-to-Self (text, world) connections, Predicting, Visualizing, Character Traits, and different styles of questions. I have the packet for Book #1 listed for FREE so you can see what a packet is like. Each packet I have made is specific to the book, so they are a little different, but you would get the general idea. Thanks so much for looking!
