Science is my students' least favorite subject. The curriculum we use makes it hard to engage them. What suggestions would you have on staying within a curriculum while adding activities to create student interest?

Hi Tiffany,

In my classroom I try to use real-world connections. Maybe ask them what interests them. Dress like scientists, act it out and have fun with hands-on activities. Hope that helps.
