I believe it is best to present the student with the science safety instructions at the beginning of the school year as well as before lessons. A great way to ensure the students and their parents understand the science safety guidelines, you may create a science safety contract and send it home with the children the first week of school. On this contract you can develop a set of rules and guideli...

Coral Reefs Collection
Tue, Apr 12, 2016 9:07 AM Coral Reefs Collection Review
This collection is very comprehensive. It is full of thematic units and concepts needed to teach students about coral reef systems. The Scipacks are very helpful in aiding teachers who plan to teach and plan lessons about coral reef ecosystems. This collection also allows teachers to understand the abiotic factors of the coral reef ecosystem as well as enhance their understanding of coral reefs as a system. Teachers can also learn about Standards and Benchmarks related to populations or coral reefs and their inhabitants. All of the science objects are created by the NOAA and NSTA, meaning they provide comprehensive and reliable information on coral reefs and oceans. This collection also encompasses conversation and human impacts on coral reef ecosystems around the world providing specific examples such as the Great Barrier Reef. These collections also discuss the interconnected concepts of ecosystems, their maintenance, destructions, species, human involvement, effects of natural disasters and conservation efforts. I believe this collection was very well put together and provides comprehensive resources for teachers to use when they want to teach about coral reef ecosystems.
