How to make science classes more interactive?

Hello, I'm trying to find the best way to make science classes more interactive, so my students can be more engaged. I know that depending on the lesson, I will have to find a way to make the class interactive and maybe a little fun. Do you guys have any ideas that could help me in the future?

Have you heard of the books Picture Perfect Science Lessons. I feel like they are a great starting point. The lessons are there fit engagement and are designed in the 5E framework. I have used some of them in the past and have now become more comfortable with trying to build my own lessons using the 5E framework. I would also search the professional journals on this site. I type in the topic I am interested in creating a lesson for and have found more ideas on how to engage. Good luck and happy planning.
