Squid Dissection Spiral Review STEM Activities

Squid Dissection Spiral Review STEM Activities

Are you looking for fun and engaging end of year science review activities? Squid Spiral Review STEM lesson will give your students opportunities to review vocabulary and concepts they learned earlier in the year. Your students will review Classification, Adaptations, Food Chain/Webs, and Basic Anatomy through the learning about fascinating Cephalopods! After your students have learned about cephalopods through short video clips, their interactive notebook and the PowerPoint, they will dissect a bait squid. The final project is to design their own squid to compete in “Squid Races”, while keeping in mind what they have learned about adaptations and jet propulsion. My 5th graders were very engaged and loved this lesson! I heard from both parents and teachers about how my students were talking about it out of class! Vocabulary Reviewed: Classification Kingdom Phylum Invertebrate Vertebrate Class Adaptations Food web Food chain Predator Prey Carnivore Herbivore Producers Consumers Internal Anatomy terms- gonads, brain, heart, ink sac, gills, pen, eye lens External Anatomy terms- mantle, eye, siphon, arms, tentacles, sucker cups, chromatophores, fin, mouth, beak Includes step by step directions as well as photos for the squid dissection and squid races. This is a great “first” dissection because there is no blood, and you can use bait squid. The bait squid are cheap and raised on a farm for bait. Since I work at an elementary school and we do not have dissecting equipment, I barrow dissecting scissors from our high school for the day of dissection. Some math is included in the lessons; data is collected and converted (cm, mm) and speed(distance/time) can be calculated from the squid races. Student also convert verified length of a giant squid into yards and meters to “see” how long the Giant Squid really is. For the engineering component students design their own squid and race them to see whose design travels the farthest or is the fastest. This is a fun and engaging thematic unit lesson that your students will talk about for years to come!

FCAT 2.0 EARTH Science Grade 5 Review and Optional Game Cards

FCAT 2.0 EARTH Science Grade 5 Review and Optional Game Cards

Its that time of year again! This PowerPoint contains 128 FCAT 2.0 Science Grade 5 Earth Science questions and answer slides. It covers all 21 Earth Science Standards that are taught throughout grades 3rd through 5th, but are tested on the 5th grade benchmark. As a 5th grade science teacher you are responsible for content previous teachers were supposed to teach in the earlier grades. Earth science makes up 29% of the FCAT science test. As I experienced, science in the earlier grades was overlooked because it was not tested until the 5th grade, or my students had “forgot” a lot of the content. This PPT reviews all the Earth Science standards. I use this as a review game. I have included the rules and directions for grudge ball, and have also included 32 Bazinga action cards and directions for that game. If you prefer not to use as a review game, this can be used for a ‘Problem of the Day’ or whole class test preparation. If I use as a Problem of the Day, I require that my students give me the correct answer, but also I require that they explain why the remaining three options cannot be correct. This is part of a review bundle. I have purposely broken it into each separate area of science. That way if you are strong in one area or didn’t get all content from another area, you can pick and choose which areas of review your students need. I have a lot of experience with benchmark state testing. When I taught 8th grade science, I was consistently ranked the 2nd or 3rd highest public school in the state. I moved down to teach 5th grade science and after my first year, moved up 18 spots, from last place in my county!

Rocks and Minerals Bundled Lesson

Rocks and Minerals Bundled Lesson

In this unit on Rocks and Mineral students learn that both Rocks and Minerals can be identified by their properties. Students will identify the physical properties of common minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color, and recognize the role of minerals in the formation of rocks. Students will explain the role of minerals and their importance in rock formation. Students will identify the three categories of rocks: igneous, (formed from molten rock); sedimentary (pieces of other rocks and fossilized organisms); and metamorphic (formed from heat and pressure). They will differentiate between the three different categories of rocks based on how each is formed and/or their physical properties. This is a bundled lesson that includes the student interactive notes and the Power Point presentation. Student discussions (Turn and Talks) and video clips embedded in presentation. A Review Crossword Puzzle and solution to review 20 vocabulary terms is also included. Everything you need to teach the lesson! This is a 4th grade standard but is annually assessed on the 5th grade state benchmark exams.

Interactions of Living Things PowerPoint and Interactive Student Notebook

This colorful and engaging 26 slide PowerPoint presentation lesson addresses multiple standards for the 4th and 5th grades. After this lesson students will be able to explain that animals, including humans, cannot make their own food and that when animals eat plants or other animals, the energy stored in the food source is passed to them. They will trace the flow of energy from the Sun as it is transferred along the food chain through the producers to the consumers. Students will be able to classify consumers as herbivores, carnivores, or omnivores, and further break the groups into predator and prey. Students will also be able to construct food chains and food webs for specific ecosystems. This lesson includes guided notes in an interactive student notebook. This bundle also includes a card sort activity in which students will first group by how they obtain energy, and then they will further break the consumers into herbivore, carnivores and omnivores, and finally they construct a food web for a saltwater marsh ecosystem. They are four embedded video clips, with specific questions pertaining to the information given during the video. As always each section is followed by a “Turn and Talk” giving your students an opportunity to discuss their newly gained knowledge.
