My name is Ariel Kimbrough and I am an aspiring teacher. I would like to teach 1st or 2nd grade after I graduate college in May of 2021. However, that may not be the case. In any event, when teaching, children get bored and fidgetty quickly. If I become a 6th grade teacher, what advice would you give in order to keep the students active and participating? I was a student who did not like science at all, so I would often zone out duing those times. The only time I was interested was when we were doing fun and cool science experiements. With, what new advice would you give a new, scared teacher during these lessons? Should I expect students to zone out, or is it ultimatley up to me to get them ready and willing to learn new information? Please let me know, thank you in advance!
