I agree with the genre. However, the factual side bars are total science non-fiction (factoids) and can be used beautifully as opposed to 'typical' science fiction which can be more fantasy than scientific fiction. Thanks!]

5 Great, easy ideas to build science vocabulary!
Loved the tips and especially the Quick Write. ?? Amazing how open-ended questions can push kids to go a little deeper. Circling the vocabulary words..... simply brilliant!

4 Solid outline of concept of 5 E's
Basic, to the point, and hits what teachers need to know to construct 5 E lesson plans. My HUGE 'aha' was that there are multiple lessons for the points of the 5 E's..... huh. Not intended for a day lesson really, but a unit.
