This product is an integrated tabbed booklet with engaging activities that explore density and buoyancy through differentiated reading and writing, as well as through a science lab activity perfect for literacy centers or science centers! Your students will be shocked by the results of the lab in this product!
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 resource was created to help save you time and to cover the important science concepts, all while still meeting the non-fiction criteria of the Common Core.
