I started off the year with a SMART board discussion on the questions, What is Science? and What do Scientists Do?
This week I will extend the discussion with an anchor chart. I use a color anchor chart as a SMART Board to review with the children what they learned previously about scientists; specifically, what scientists do/are/need. As we discuss each section I fill in the chart as a whole group lesson.
I pass out student copies of the anchor chart for students to engage in the lesson as well. I have them complete their chart as I complete the colored anchor chart on the SMART Board.
After their anchor chart is complete I have my students add it to a new page of their science notebook. This way each student will have their own copy of the anchor which they were involved in completing to refer to during writing.
Welcome Bunting Freebie
To welcome my students to the Science Room this year, I made a colorful WELCOME Bunting which I hung atop my SMART Board. I copied the pages onto construction paper and then cut out each flag of the bunting. You could also copy them onto card stock to make them more firm.
Visit my TpT Store to get your Scientist Notebook Anchor Chart and a FREEBIE of my (Editable) WELCOME Bunting and leave me your feedback about these or other products in my store.
Have a fantastic week!
