Data Analysis

Genetics

  • Free Genetics Vocabulary Boom Deck: Students use these digital task cards on the Boom Learning site to practice the definitions of genotype, phenotype, dominant, recessive, homozygous, and heterozygous. All cards are multiple choice or click the correct response. Use this versatile deck as a preassessment, homework assignment, review, or assessment. 
  • Free Halloween Genotype and Phenotype Punnett Square Worksheet: Celebrate Halloween in your science classroom with this fun Halloween monsters worksheet! Your students will create Punnett squares to determine the likelihood of certain genotypes and phenotypes in monsters.
  • Free St. Patrick's Day Monohybrid Crosses Punnett Square Worksheet: Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in science with this genetics worksheet featuring leprechauns. Your students will use monohybrid Punnett squares to find the percent chance of different genotypes and phenotypes. Students will need a working knowledge of words like heterozygous, homozygous, hybrid, and purebred. The questions on the worksheet are arranged from easiest to most challenging.
  • Free Winter Holiday Genetics Punnett Square Worksheet: Students find the genotypes and phenotypes of the offspring of winter holiday characters like Santa and Mrs. Claus, Rudolf, and elves. This one page worksheet can be used as practice in class or as a homework assignment. A key is included.

The Human Body

  • Free Body Systems Bell Ringers: This set has six warm-up cards, one from each of the following organ systems: nervous, circulatory, respiratory, skeletal, muscular, and digestive systems. Use these warm-up cards as bell ringers, task cards, or stations. They're perfectly sized to fit in science interactive notebooks!
  • Free Body Systems Informational Posters: Use these colorful posters to decorate your science classroom during your unit on the human body. The organ systems included are the digestive, muscular, skeletal, nervous, respiratory, and circulatory systems.
  • Free Homeostasis Worksheet: This one-page worksheet will introduce your middle school or upper elementary science students to homeostasis with a short reading passage and a question set about homeostasis. Get lesson plan ideas for teaching homeostasis. 
  • Free Levels of Organization & Tissues Vocabulary Game Cards: Use this set of eight differentiated science vocabulary game cards in your human body unit to review and reinforce terms related to the levels of organization in the human body and the four basic types of tissue. The cards can be used in many ways throughout your lessons; nine ideas for use are included. The eight included vocabulary cards are cell, tissue, organ, organ system, epithelial tissue, nervous tissue, muscle tissue, and connective tissue. Learn more about vocabulary review activities.

Measurement

  • Free Density Science Interactive Notebook Page: Students practice the relationship between mass, volume, and density in this INB page perfectly sized to fit in composition notebooks. An answer key is provided. 
  • Free Liquid Volume Graduated Cylinders Worksheet: Give your students practice measuring liquid volume in 30 mL graduated cylinders. Students record the volume of liquid in graduated cylinders and shade the graduated cylinders to show specific volumes. The graduated cylinders in this worksheet show liquid with a meniscus instead of a straight line.

  1. Children often struggle with science due to its complex concepts. Scientific terms and theories may be difficult to grasp without real-world examples, hindering comprehension. Hands-on experiments and practical applications are essential for understanding, but not always accessible. Limited exposure to engaging, interactive learning experiences may contribute to a lack of interest and hinder a child's ability to connect theoretical knowledge with practical understanding. An experience Science tuition with effective teaching methods can bridge the gap between theory and application for young learners.
