Personally, I have found this resource to be very interesting and helpful for elementary science teachers. As a student who is about to graduate with their K-5 license, the descriptions of science at both ends of the K-5 spectrum is very helpful.

The tips and resources it gives for classroom management is also helpful, as well as the other information and tips.
