1 February 11, 2014 KINDERGARTEN SCIENCE: DAY 2

2 Paul Drummond Jennifer Gottlieb Science Consultants, MISD WELCOME!

3 One new thing I’ve tried in my classroom is…. ….and as a result, my students… SINCE WE LAST MET…

4 SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING PRACTICES

5 A NEW MODEL FOR THE PRACTICE OF SCIENCE

6 ORCHESTRA STUDENTS ARE MUSICIANS; STUDENTS ON THE BASKETBALL TEAM ARE ATHLETES; WHAT OPPORTUNITIES DO OUR SCIENCE STUDENTS HAVE TO BE SCIENTISTS?

7 PULLING IT ALL TOGETHER… Next Generation Science Standards Science & Engineering Practices 1.Asking questions and defining problems 2.Developing and using models 3.Planning and carrying out investigations 4.Analyzing and interpreting data 5.Using mathematics and computational thinking 6.Constructing explanations and designing solutions 7.Engaging in argument from evidence 8.Obtaining, evaluating and communicating information

8 5E LEARNING CYCLE  Engage  Explore  Explain  Elaborate  Evaluate

9 ommonCoreELA_ pdf

10  Science Notebooks  Learning about Weather in Kindergarten  Scaffolding Learning  Learning about Animals and Plants in Kindergarten OBJECTIVES FOR TODAY

11 SCIENCE NOTEBOOKS

12 LEONARDO DAVINCI 1488

13 CHARLES DARWIN 1837

14 From “Nonfiction Literacy in Kindergarten” by Janice Novakowski, Science and Children, 2010

15 Science Notebooks …  … make student thinking visible  … are formative assessment tools  … strengthen literacy skills  … support differentiated learning  … provide a vehicle for teacher collaboration PURPOSE OF A SCIENCE NOTEBOOK Gilbert and Kotelman, “Five Good Reasons to Use Science Notebooks,” Science and Children, 2005

16 PURPOSE OF A SCIENCE NOTEBOOK Everything comes together in a notebook:  Next Generation Science Standards  CCSS ELA Content  CCSS Math Content  Disciplinary Classroom Practices …and all of these work together to help students develop an understanding of science content!

17 As you read the article…  Highlight your favorite quote  How might we engage kindergarten students in keeping a record of their science work with a science notebook? NONFICTION LITERACY IN KINDERGARTEN

18 WEATHER!

19 Read Sunshine on My Shoulders by John Denver ENGAGE

20 What effect does sunlight have on Earth’s surface? EXPLORE

21 What effect does sunlight have on Earth’s surface? Draw a picture to explain what you found out. EXPLAIN

22 Build a solar oven to show how the sunlight warms the earth enough to cook food! ELABORATE

23 Design and build a structure to reduce the warming effects of the sunlight on the Earth. ELABORATE

24 Read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.  How did the pictures help show the weather and help tell the story? ENGAGE

25 Weather Words cold windy sunshine ENGAGE Weather Stories  Think about a day when weather was important to what you did.  Draw/write a weather story from a day you remember  Share stories with class. I wonder how a scientist would describe weather patterns?

26  How might we describe some of these like a scientist?  What could we measure? How could we measure it? EXPLORE: OBSERVING THE WEATHER Weather Words cold windy sunshine

27 EXPLORE: ORGANIZING WEATHER DATA

28 MondayTuesdayWednesdayThursdayFriday EXPLORE: ORGANIZING WEATHER DATA

29 Look at weather data after a week… What patterns do you notice? Look at weather data after a month….after a season…. What patterns do you notice? EXPLAIN

30 Once we recognize weather patterns, how can they help us?  What to wear?  Where to go?  What to do?  Should school be cancelled? ELABORATE

31 Share weather patterns with the school community ELABORATE

32 Look for ways the teacher scaffolds learning in the following areas:  Planning and carrying out investigations  Data organization  Writing a claim that is supported with evidence MOVIE TIME! What might this look like in our weather unit?

33 LUNCH!

34 What are some ways you might engage kindergarten students with science notebooks? REFLECTION
