Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative/explanatory texts in which they name what they are writing about and supply some information about the topic.
Draw a picture explaining the scientific difference between pushing and pulling.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.3.1a [CCSS page]
Come to discussions prepared, having read or studied required material; explicitly draw on that preparation and other information known about the topic to explore ideas under discussion.
Explain the science of heat from friction, such as when you rub your hands together.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.6.2a [CCSS page]
Introduce a topic; organize ideas, concepts, and information, using strategies such as definition, classification, comparison/contrast, and cause/effect; include formatting (e.g., headings), graphics (e.g., charts, tables), and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension.
Using appropriate vocabulary words, write a scientific description of the forces at work when a T-ball is hit from its T. Include all scientific details that take place in the force and motion of the bat, the ball and any effects of this event.

Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
Using a force meter (spring scale), measure how much force is needed to move a book five inches across a smooth table. Experiment with other classroom items. Here are instructions using a mug as an example.

Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.
Predict how long it will take a ball to roll a measured distance over a variety of surfaces. Roll the ball several times over the surfaces and chart the time. Suggested surfaces: blacktop, gym floor, grass, sandbox, carpet, etc. Note the effect of friction in the experiment.

Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.
Place a string through a straw. Inflate a balloon and estimate its volume using centimeter cubes. Tape the straw to the side of an inflated balloon. Measure how far the balloon will travel when the opening of the balloon is released and the air is allowed to escape. Make changes to the volume of air in the balloon, estimate the volume again and chart the distance.
