Science Readers: A Closer Look: Be Healthy! Be Fit! Kit includes:
Paired leveled readers support one concept within a unit of study, providing students with scientific informational text at their individual reading levels. Each book will draw students' attention to essential vocabulary and offer numerous pictures, graphics, and illustrations to support the text. A lab activity awaits students at the end of each book.
Provide teachers with a way to integrate their teaching of language arts and science while making accommodations for differences in student reading abilities and levels of understanding. Each lesson employs the 5E model of instruction, which encourages an inquiry-based learning environment.
Data-Analysis Activities present concepts and data related to the topic of the unit and support the content of the readers.
Teachers are provided eight short videos from The Futures Channel® in each kit. These videos are ideally suited to introducing concepts, activating prior knowledge, and inspiring interest in sometimes complex and abstract concepts.
