Elementary School Science Literacy Program What is it? Think Scientifically is a three-book series for elementary school teachers that integrates math, science and reading instruction. Each storybook focuses on a key science theme and includes a hands-on science lesson, math and language arts activities, and other educational resources that can be easily utilized in the classroom. Why is it important? With increasing pressure on schools to focus on math and reading, science often gets left behind. What are the books about? The Day Joshua Jumped Too Much Joshua discovers that the Sun is Earth's primary source of energy and learns what the world would be like without it! What activities can I find in the books? The books include a hands-on lab activity, a data collection/graphing activity, a language arts activity, a book walk, a bulletin board idea, etc. Where can I find the books? All three books are available for downloads from iTunes. Free online flipbooks for your SMART board or tablet Related:  Energy

My Light: How Sunlight Becomes Electricity: Molly Bang: 9780439489614: Amazon.com: Books Fourth Grade Converting Energy 4-PS3-2 Students who demonstrate understanding can: Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. 4-PS3-4 Students who demonstrate understanding can: Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another. 4-PS4-1 Students who demonstrate understanding can: Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and to show that waves can cause objects to move. Energy can be observed in a variety of situations (motion of objects, transfer of sound, light, heat, electric currents, and motion of waves). By observing these different types of energy, we can see that energy is transferred and can be converted from one form to another. Through observations of waves we see patterns in wave amplitude and wavelength. Introduction to the OKSci Framework Return to Fourth Grade Introduction Return to Fourth Grade Bundles
