Science Diagrams Tips
Printable and Projectable Visual Teaching Tools
Science Diagrams from Science A-Z provide colorful, full-page models of important, sometimes complex science concepts. Science Diagrams, available in both printable and projectable formats, serve as instructional tools that help students read and interpret visual devices, an important skill in STEM fields. Many of the diagrams are enhanced visual teaching tools based on the diagrams found within Science A-Z resources, while others are only found in this collection.
By studying science diagrams, students can visualize patterns, systems, cycles, scale, structures, and functions. Students will be better prepared to analyze new diagrams they encounter and be able to develop and use their own scientific models as they complete investigations.
Why Use Science Diagrams
Many science standards call for students to both interpret and create models. The Science Diagrams from Science A-Z prepare students to meet performance expectations by providing grade-appropriate topics and details in each visual teaching tool.
Science diagrams often appeal to visual learners and, in turn, allow teachers to differentiate instruction to address multiple learning styles and modalities in their classrooms. Visual models also make science concepts more accessible to English language learners (ELLs).
How to Use Science Diagrams
Print Science Diagrams so that students can record notes on them, or display the projectable versions with their built-in tools on a monitor, whiteboard, or screen for small-group or whole-class lessons.
Refer to the Science Diagrams Teacher's Guide for many tips on how to use diagrams with students and extend their value in fun ways.
