ELL students will love participating in a fun, hands-on activity while they learn about content area topics. Students will learn about density and polar and non-polar substances. They will follow simple steps to perform a science experiment by creating a snowstorm in a jar. They will read a simplified text explaining important content area science topics and answer comprehension questions. Then, they will write a summary of the experiment and an explanation of the scientific concepts. They will practice speaking using high-frequency academic vocabulary.
Here’s what you’ll get:
- a visually supported explanation of density.
- easy instructions to complete a science experiment
- an accessible science text with comprehension questions
- scaffolded support to encourage students’ scientific writing
- a speaking activity with sentence stems
- a speaking activity without sentence stems
- a student-friendly speaking rubric
Your students will love this hands-on activity designed specifically to help them show growth in language proficiency. They’ll be ready to write and speak with confidence about scientific topics in both the language classroom and regular education setting.
Special Note: You will need to purchase basic ingredients such as baby oil and antacid tablets to perform the experiment. You will also need jars. I purchased plastic jars at Amazon.com: Fireboomoon 6 Pack 16 Ounce Clear Plastic Mason Jars Containers With Screw Sealing Metal Tinplate Lids,Refillable Empty PET Plastic Slime Candy Storage Jars Containers for Home Kitchen Art Craft : Everything Else.
