What could teach your students more about conductors and insulators than a hands-on investigation where they test out items themselves? That’s exactly what they’ll do with the help of these tabbed booklets! They’ll even get to practice other skills like building vocabulary, reading, and writing.

Unfortunately, with the large demands on reading and math from Common Core, science is often pushed to the side. If your district is like mine, then you often have very little time to dedicate to science, yet you are still expected to fully cover the entire curriculum. This packet was created to help save you time and to cover the important science concepts while still meeting the non-fiction criteria of Common Core.

This Product Includes:
✓ Mini-book for students to assemble and explore the critical science concepts of conductors and insulators. It can be used to teach, reinforce, and/or challenge students, all while meeting their needs and learning styles.
✓ Differentiated reading page — higher level (designated with two stars for student privacy) and lower level (designated with one star).
✓ Tabs to be used as science stations or as literacy stations. The first tab contains an important vocabulary activity related to conductors and insulators and corresponds with the reading piece provided. The second tab asks comprehension questions related to the reading piece and requires students to support their answers with textual evidence. The third tab focuses on an investigation to deepen the understanding of conductors and insulators. The fourth tab asks students to draw, and the fifth tab prompts students to respond to a thought-provoking journal question.
✓ In this investigation students build a simple circuit and place various items into it one at a time to determine if they are an insulator or a conductor. There is also a blank table for teachers who prefer to select their own items to test.
While I recommend printing in color and laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale.
These booklets are perfect for tutors, paraprofessionals, volunteers, and substitutes! They are low prep, too!
