In addition to individual student work time, use this mini-workbook to enhance learning through guided science groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need help understanding the concepts by completing the activity with teacher guidance or encouraging collaboration with a partner. Additionally, provide access to previous assignments, as well as posters and anchor charts for students to recall past lessons.
