What’s better than providing your students with challenging, thought-provoking questions? Providing them with those questions in three different ways! I’ve compiled a large set of questions about a variety of weather topics, and then I’ve created three different ways that you can present those questions to reach all little learners in your class!
This Product Includes:
This product contains 40 open-ended questions that vary in difficulty according to Bloom’s Taxonomy all related to weather concepts. The following weather concepts are covered:
✓ Precipitation and types
✓ Clouds and types
✓ Water cycle
✓ Severe weather
✓ Weather tools
✓ Air pressure
✓ Greenhouse effect
✓ Common misconceptions
With This Product You’ll Get:
✓ Three different styles for questioning: fan strips, journal questions, and task cards
✓ Half-sheet journal response pages
How You Can Use This Product:
✓ The long strips can be pinned together through the use of a brad nail or a reading ring for whole group or small group instruction. Teachers can use them as a fan of questions for attention grabbers at the beginning of your weather unit or as thought-provoking questions during a unit.
✓ The half-sheet journal response page can be used with the journal strip questions as an exit ticket, as a research prompt, as a center, or as an assessment. Further, if you wish, you can have students cut the strip and glue it into their science notebook instead. There are 20 of the same question to a page to help you reduce copies.
✓ The task cards are a great way to provide the questions to students during literacy centers or science centers. These can be used independently or with partners.
