The Science Teacher's Activity-A-Day, Grades 5-10
New in the 5-Minute Fundamentals Series, this book provides science teachers with a huge selection of quick, fun activities that align with the national science education standards, including 180 easy, five-minute activities that capture learners' attention and introduce lessons. It’s divided into three units: Physical Science, Life Science, and Earth and Space Science, and all the book's activities can be done with materials that are inexpensive and easy to find.
For new learning to occur, students must make a connection with what they already know and the new content that they're learning. The Science Teacher's Activity-A-Day is structured to do this by providing two different types of activities: hook activities and sponge activities. Hook activities enable students to link prior knowledge to a new topic, while sponge activities are designed to engage students' interest at the beginnging of a lesson. For the teacher, the sponge activity can help reveal any misconceptions that students and hook activities help teachers find out what students already know on the topic.
