he General Science Quick Starts workbook provides warm-up activities that will exercise scientific investigation skills in six broad subject area categories: matter and energy, living things, ecosystems and habitats, astronomy and space sciences, earth science materials, and ancient life. Skills covered in the quick start activities include observing, asking about, understanding, figuring out, doing stuff, and finding out. Each page features two to four quick starts that can be cut apart and used separately. The entire page may also be used as a whole-class or individual assignment.
The Quick Starts Series provides students in grades 4 through 8+ with quick review activities in science, math, language arts, and social studies. The activities provide students with a quick start for the day’s lesson and help students build and maintain a powerful domain-specific vocabulary. Each book is correlated to current state, national, and provincial standards.
