Group Science Activities for Kids

Investigation Packs are group science activities for kids that help them dig deeper into Science A-Z content, apply scientific practices, and develop the 21st century skills of critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. Reading resources called Investigation Files, or I.Files, feature high-interest, in-depth science content in an engaging design that includes features of informational text, such as graphs, maps, and photographs. Students do a close reading of the I.Files and then cite evidence that helps them solve the Mystery File in each pack through group discussion.
