Floating and Sinking Emergent Reader Booklet Freebie

I was very disappointed that sinking and floating experiments were not included as any part of the next generation science standards.  I love doing this each year with my class and modeling the scientific method. It is simple, affordable, and fun!! 

At any rate, I managed to squeeze this in during the last week of school.  My class was done with intense lessons. They were ready for something different.  They were ready for some hands-on experimentation. And I was able to tie it into reading!!!

I have some nonfiction floating and sinking big books that we read together as a class, like the one below.
In addition, this emergent reader booklet integrates the floating and sinking theme into reading!! And it also your freebie today!!

I would also like to share this gem!  I was not able to share it with my class, because it is only available on YouTube and I could not access it through the district server.   However, I played it at home for my second grade son and he was glued to his seat! It is an interactive video. Give it a try on your computer!! (It doesn't work on the iPad.)

  2. It's probably too late for this year, but you can download from Youtube using a free program like Ilivid. It's a lot quicker than having the tech administrator approve and unblock the video so you can show it. I just save them to a thumbdrive and use them as I need to.
