Ten Pin Linky: Science & Social Studies

I walked through Wal-Mart yesterday for a few things and was so excited to see the back-to-school supplies were out!

Well, the part about school being back in session soon didn't get me excited.

It was more the bin full of 25 cent glue sticks.

I loaded up on glue sticks, rulers, pencil holders, pens, and pencil sharpeners.

I had to get some pool noodles too because I saw Kelly's Throwback Thursday post about using pool noodles as tens and ones for place value.

It's linky time again!

This is a complete side note, but is anyone else having trouble with some of their boards disappearing?  This has happened to me more than once.  In the middle of creating this post, my science board disappeared. The number of my followers also changed (by about 20).  So I made breakfast, did a little bit of laundry, went back to Pinterest and it still isn't there.  What??  Some of the science pictures might not work, but you can click on the link below the picture that takes you to the source.

One of our very first social studies units is tall tales.  I always struggle to find things that fit into this category that are fun and age appropriate.  Paul and his big blue ox, Babe, are always a favorite!

I had the hardest time finding things for John Henry.  This is a free download and it fits the needs of my students perfectly.

My students loved this visual aid!  It's another freebie.

This was one of the first things I made back in December.  It's a big hit in my TPT.  I hung them up in my room and my students were interested in seeing the different types of landforms.

Goes along great with the landforms posters!

Even better that it's part of a giveway today!  Julie from First Grade Critter Cafe is hosting a giveaway in celebration of her blogging anniversary.  If you've ever emailed back and forth with Julie you know how sweet and full of life she is!  She also has some AMAZING art projects on her blog.

Continuing on with the pins...

Great writing connection when you are studying about animals.  "If I had animal teeth..."

Interactive way to learn the life cycle of an insect!

Great activity to introduce living/nonliving!  Except I would have to touch a real worm.  Gag!!

I have tons more science ideas, but that darn Pinterest isn't working!  

Amber from School is a Happy Place has a great post about being a no reply blogger.  Honestly, I didn't even realize I was when I first started blogging.  Click on the picture (isn't it cute??) to visit her blog and make sure you are not a "no reply blogger!"
