I totally agree with everyone before me, they all have great ideas! I think it is just very important to be able to relate the lessons to the things that the girls in your classroom and interested in. This could be another core subject, an extra curricular activity, an art, or just personal experiences. There are so many ways to incorporate music and art in science lessons, and these are tw...

I recently did a science lesson with a first grade class and I used the school garden to introduce the topic of parts of a plant. There were many weeds and plants that weren't necessarily part of the garden, so I had the students pick one and pull it out of the ground completely. I did this so that the students were able to observe a whole plant and identify the four major parts. I then had...

Earth as a Planet: Elementary Collection
Thu, Apr 13, 2017 6:38 PM Earth as a Planet Review
This collection has a great selection of resources that can be easily incorporated into the classroom to enhance student learning. All of the example lessons and activities involve using ideas and concepts that not only help develop student knowledge, but also keep them engaged in the lesson. I also really liked how the lessons were made so that they could be modified for lower and higher grades. For example, in the Daylight Saving Time resource, it provides teachers with different follow activities that are grade level appropriate. It also gives multiple resources for teachers to use when modifying the lesson for their students. All of the resources also tie in the content with the standards and other related ideas from national science standards. All in all, the resources included in this collection accurately follow up with one another and actually build on top of the previous one. They provide different methods of teaching the different topics which is beneficial to all students.
Properties of Matter Collection
Tue, Nov 15, 2016 7:22 PM Collection Review
This collection is actually very useful for the topic Properties of Matter. I thought all of the resources included in the collection all built on top of each other and added greatly to the topic. I really enjoyed reading through the different experiments that were provided throughout the collection. I thought those experiments were ones that could easily be done in a normal classroom setting, appropriate for the grade levels stated, were tied in to the topic of Properties of Matter, and are enjoyable for the students to participate in. Also, I thought the Formative Assessment article was a valuable resource to add for teachers. It was a great insight for future teachers to learn how to question students and probe their learning in the classroom to enhance their education. This is also very helpful in measuring the students progress from beginning to end of the lesson and see if they have improved in the overall concept. This way the teacher can know if they have to reteach the lesson or what can be done to go over the lesson to benefit the student.
