I am a fourth grade teacher in Austin, TX. I have taught for 30+ years and specialize in math and science, and continually look for ways to improve my teaching.

I encourage all to delve into the resources, including the forums. There a many great ideas and it's a great way to share.

The article includes a sequence of activities, materials, safety recommendations, and adaptations. I'm ready to give this activity a go.
