May the Force Be With You! and a FREEBIE!

Warning: This might be long! Smile But stick with it because there’s something special at the end!
So Shuna @ Pocket Full of Kinders used my handy dandy product request (that little tab up above Winking smile ) and requested a unit on magnets!! Lucky for me Scrappin’ Doodles has some awesome clip art! Then I got waaaayyy excited about it when I realized there was Star Wars clip art and went with a “May the Force Be With You” theme for the unit….get it?? Magnetic force??Hopefully I’m not the only weirdo who thought that was clever! It’s packed with some intro activities and suggestions (including vocab cards and a thinking map or two), 4 science activities that can be done whole or small group, 3 literacy activities (pocket chart poem, contraction, scrambled sentences), and 3 math activities (time, addition and money).  So without further ado…

If you download the preview from TpT you’ll get details of what’s in the pack before purchasing.  Also if you click the pictures above you’ll be able to see them larger!
Now for the FREEBIE!
My science packs have been SOOO popular!  I found that kinder kiddos (and probably even firsties) do well when having an action verb to connect to the scientific method.  Even though they are young I believe it’s so so important for them to understand the PROCESS at the most basic level.  And what better way for them to have a firm understanding than to connect each step to a verb.  So, here’s what I came up with:
Cover


TpT2
















Poster
It comes with a full page poster for each step with an “I” statement.  The “I” statements are:
“I wonder…”
“I think…”
“I see…”
“I discovered…”
“I know…”











Cards



These are 1/4 page cards.  You could use them on a bulletin board if you didn’t have room for the full pages.  They could also be used in a lesson about the scientific method as a sequencing activity.











Recording Sheet


This is a generic recording sheet for experiments you might do in the classroom.  There is a spot for each step labeled with the same picture and “I” statement.  This could be used for any experiment!!












Enjoy the freebie!  I always love to hear how you use my products in your classrooms or what other things you might like to see!! Smile 
I’m linking up with Freebie Friday:

Now for the special thing I promised you!  I’ll give away the “May the Force Be With You” Magnets unit to one special person.  Just comment with what other science unit you might like to see (an extra entry for blogging about it too!). Smile The giveaway will end Monday morning 8 am Central time!  Let the comments begin!

PS. Got my TpT check in the mail (so amazed that I even got a check the first quarter I was even active!!!) and I was like a kid on Christmas.  It was pretty ridiculous. Smile

  5. I have loved everything I have seen you make! It would be awesome to make a K-1 unit on the solar system! (P.S. So thought the title was perfect with the whole force/Star Wars theme) ;)

  6. I think the title "May the force be with you" is very clever! I even chuckled out loud a little bit ;) I would love to see a unit on the rain forest! My kiddo's are animal obsessed!! I think it would be great to teach them about animals that they don't see every day in Ohio :)

  13. Yay! Can't wait to use this! I would like to see units on plants, the solar system, and the human body/5 senses with practical experiments to do with the kids. They love to do experiments, but the ones in our texts are not always practical for my class of 30+ kinders. Thanks!!!
