It's time to spring into science! I've teamed up with some blogger friends to bring you some great science ideas, freebies, and giveaways.
I don't know about you, but I am so excited to see the sun out!!!! The winter has been way too long this year! We celebrated the sunshine in my classroom by integrating language arts into our science sun unit.
We started off with a simple is/has/can chart. As we gained new information we added it to the chart. The students added their sun facts to the chart on sun diecuts. The students were able to complete their own is/has/can chart and use the facts to write informational reports on the sun.
Of course the best part of the unit was the experiments! We experimented to see if ice would melt faster in sun or shade, the difference in water temperature in sun and shade, and the difference in air temperature in sun and shade. Each experiment had a foldable recording sheet where the students could record their predictions on the front and results on the inside. You can grab a free copy of the ice melting experiment here.
If you want to have some fun in the sun in your classroom check out my Let the Sun Shine mini science unit. It includes 37 pages of sun fun that integrates science and language arts.
Follow my adventures and enter to win a free copy! I'll be giving away two free copies to share my sunshine!
