Warm Up to Science: TEKS-Based Engagement Activities
Warm Up to Science offers student-centered engagement activities for immediate student involvement. Scientifically-based research supports the use of this form of frequent conceptual exposure to enhance student understanding.
Activities are designed to require 5–10 minutes of class time and are written with the cognitive rigor demanded by the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Students must use critical-thinking skills as they are presented with content-specific activities or with visual stimuli, including charts, graphs, and tables. Each activity may be used as an engagement for a new lesson, a method to enhance retention, and a means to support State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) preparation. Activities are grouped by STAAR reporting categories and sequenced by TEKS number and student expectation.
Each item is presented in a two-page format. In the printed version, the even-numbered pages include supportive teacher notes and activity answer keys. The odd-numbered pages include student activities that are easily photocopied for student use.
In the digital version, links provide easy access to each student activity. Clicking forward opens the activity answer key and teacher notes. Digital access is provided through R4Hub.esc4.net with a user license set up at time of purchase. Files can be projected or printed for classroom use.
