Whether your students are working to save endangered ecosystems, investigating distant constellations, creating unusual animals, or constructing a design solution, these diverse and creative prompts will have students looking forward to each day when they're asked to "Take Five!" for Science. Begin every day of the school year with a burst of writing in the science discipline with this comprehensive and fun resource. Ready? Set? Take Five!

Judy Elgin Jensen’s love of science took root as she watched her mother prepare foods harvested on the family’s farm. So it was inevitable that she became a biology teacher instead of the journalism major her mother thought she would be. In the classroom during a time of declining enrollments and more teachers than positions, she learned that textbooks were developed by ex-teachers who brought practical experience to the world of academia. Thirty-plus years of collaborating with authors and educators to create scientifically accurate materials that support teachers in their work ensued. Judy has authored and edited science texts and resources for pre-K through high school for the National Science Teachers Association, the National Science Foundation, and National Geographic Learning, among others.
