I'm linking up with the Collaboration Cuties for the science edition of Favorite Mentor Texts. I've been thinking about one science text to share and I'm afraid I'm going to have to cheat a bit this week.
I'd like to highlight a favorite science text author, Gail Gibbons. She has written s e v e r a l science texts that are great for the early elementary classroom.
Below you will find a free printable that can go along with any of Gibbons' books. Students can write words in the appropriate boxes to show what they know about a given science topic. After reading a book that covers that topic, students will add more information to their graphic organizers. This activity can be done individually, with partners, or with the whole group.
If you would like a free copy of this printable, click on the picture below. The clip art is from Scrappin Doodles.
Have a great week and best of luck if you are testing.
