Warm Up to Science: TEKS-Based Engagement Activities Series
Activities are designed to require 5–10 minutes of class time and are written with the cognitive rigor demanded by the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Students must use critical-thinking skills as they are presented with content-specific activities or with visual stimuli, including charts, graphs, and tables. Each activity may be used as an engagement for a new lesson, a method to enhance retention, and a means to support State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) preparation. Activities are grouped by STAAR reporting categories and sequenced by TEKS number and student expectation.
Each item is presented in a two-page format. In the printed version, the even-numbered pages include supportive teacher notes and activity answer keys. The odd-numbered pages include student activities that are easily photocopied for student use.
In the digital version, links provide easy access to each student activity. Clicking forward opens the activity answer key and teacher notes. Digital access is provided through R4Hub.esc4.net with a user license set up at time of purchase. Files can be projected or printed for classroom use.
Supporting STAAR® Achievement in Science
This resource addresses the science readiness standards, which are reinforced by the supporting standards, underlying processes and skills, and the English Language Proficiency Standards. Tier I differentiated activities help identify where students are and support student progress toward success on STAAR®.

*Aligned to the 2010 TEKS
*Gateways to Science, TAKS Edition Correlations to 2010 TEKS
While the following documents correlate the 2010 TEKS to Gateways to Science for Grades 3-8, TAKS Editions, it should be noted that in many instances, the correlations do not mirror the spirit and rigor of the 2010 TEKS. Modifications may be necessary during the instructional planning process to ensure 100% alignment with the 2010 TEKS.
