Invertebrates, Science Literacy Grade 6


Invertebrates is a 3-page science literacy package for Grades 5, 6 and 7. With plenty of specialist terms and several drawings, students will find it easy to read and understand while they learn the hard stuff as well.

A page of word matching and short answer questions follows the text. There is a practical task to engage students in real-life science in the home garden.

Anyone can use this and as with all my materials there is permission to copy for teaching and tutoring purposes. This is ideal for one-to-one teaching or small groups. No preparation is needed as the text is complete and activities are based only on what is in the text.
