Away We Go!!!
Off on another adventure!
In the coming days, weeks, months and (hopefully) years, you'll find an assortment of activities to bring to your science classroom. Most of these activities are suitable for middle school students, as that's where my experience lies. However, the bulk of these activities can be used with elementary students, often with little to no adjustment on your behalf. Some are appropriate for high school students as well. In fact, a lot of my best materials have come from other people, at other grade levels and have been modified to fit the needs of my students.
My plan is to provide you with about 4 days of science lessons/activities/demonstrations per week and 1 day of other "stuff". Amongst the other stuff, you'll learn of some of my favorite websites, professional development opportunities, classroom management techniques, ideas for decorating your classroom, dressing the part, and anything else I think you might have even a passing interest in! We'll also explore some features you may wish to bring to your classroom: What is it? How does it work?
My plan is to have science lessons Monday through Thursday and other stuff on Fridays. Based on feedback and how things are going on this end the schedule may change over time, but it's good to have a starting point, right?
