life science activities
Life Science Activities
  • Nonlinguistic Representations/Advance Organizers/Identifying Similarities and Differences
  • Use animals or animal pictures that students draw, photos or pictures from books, photos of their own household pets, assortment of animal manipulatives to talk about how animals are the same/different.
  • Allow children to sort the animal manipulatives or animal pictures into categories and have them explain how they sorted them.
  • Assist children in creating class graphs showing the number of legs on their favorite animals.
  • Match pictures (or manipulatives) of adult animals with the appropriate baby animals.

Whole group

Cues, Questions & Advance Organizers

Put rain gauges outside to collect rain. Talk with the children about the different amounts of rain collected on different days. Be sure to record the rainfall on a class chart or graph. Have students share their experiences of walking, traveling in a car, trying to sleep at night when it’s raining (and possibly thundering and lightening).

Recommended Lesson Format

Use of a modified 5-E model of instruction is encouraged throughout science lessons:

o Engage (create interest, generate curiosity, motivate students)

o Explore (ask inquiry questions, observe and listen, allow time for reflection)

o Explain (build discussion, define and explain, ask for clarification)

o Elaborate (use experience to enhance understanding, help apply new concepts)

o Evaluate (observe behaviors, assess knowledge and skills, ask open-ended questions, use work stations as a management tool, implement the use of picture/word wall to reinforce vocabulary acquisition)
