Using the free Wonder Science video “Ants on the Ground,” as a starting point, this product presents a thought-provoking 5E lesson plan that takes students through the NGSS 3D learning components for 3-LS2-1. Multidisciplinary activities that use the topic of the video as the inspiration for math, language, reading, and writing activities that are based on grade-level Common Core State Standards.
Additional projects allow students to interact with real scientists by sending their inquiries to Wonder Science and sharing their learning through the Wonder Science Student Spotlight page. Moreover, students are encouraged to engage in mindfulness while listening to the music and drawing/writing whatever comes to mind.
You can print out the PDF or use it digitally. The accompanying video can be found on the wonderscience.com website, or on the Wonder Science app which is free to download on all major streaming and mobile platforms. Please view the attached table of contents for specifics and get ready to wonder!
