Freaky Friday Week 2...and a Brand New Resource!

Freaky Friday Dollar Deals

Are you ready for week two of Freaky Friday 2018?

For one day only, some friends and I have each chosen one item to mark down to a dollar! Click below to see all of the deals, or scroll to the bottom of this post to take a look at each participating store!

Freaky Friday Dollar Deals

This week I have created a brand new resource to include in our promotion. This science and literacy resource is fun for fall, when scarecrows are on our minds, but can also be used any time of year. In fact, this is a great one to keep in your back pocket for a time that you need a hands-on, easy-to-plan science activity.

The Crow and the Pitcher - Freaky Friday Deal

What you will get is a PowerPoint slideshow storybook of Aesop's fable, "The Crow and the Pitcher" along with printable recording sheets for a science exploration. I have adapted and illustrated this story to help students understand the concept of displacement of fluids. I've also included turn-and-talk discussion questions, teaching points, and exploration ideas. With four suggested hands-on explorations (and recording sheets), you can pick which will work best for your students. 

The Crow and the Pitcher - Displacement, Hands-On Science

For this activity, you will need to gather a few materials ahead of time. You will need plenty of pebbles. If you don't have any that you can pillage from your own garden, you can pick up a bag of pea gravel or river pebbles from a local home improvement or gardening store for a few dollars. You will also need clear plastic disposable cups--any brand will do--and a few Sharpies (or just one if you want to do all of the marking yourself). Depending on which labs you choose, you may also need some slightly larger rocks, some marbles, craft pom poms, and plastic manipulatives (such as connecting cubes or counting bears).

For more details, or to grab this while it's a dollar, head over to TPT!
