Hello, I am still student teaching and I will graduate in December 0f 2016. I have that same problem. I find that sometimes there are only a few students that didn't understand the material while the others passed the assessment.

In classrooms I have been at I have seen teachers teach about life cycles starting with a seed and then moving on to other life cycles of animals and so on.

This is a good resource to identify the pros of using sunglasses as well as using recycled materials to make your own. This is a fun and interactive activity that allows students to learn about the history of sunglasses as well as recycling. I really like the step by step procedures provided. This is a fun way to get students involved in their learning.
Ooey, Gooey, FISH GUTS!

This is an interesting resource. It is a fun and interactive way to dissect a fish. This can be done when learning about other living animals or even when learning about the human body. Students can compare their stomach to a fish. This is engaging and will have the students involved in their learning process. Students can compare fish to other fish and compare diets as well as living environments.
What Happens to Animals during Hurricanes?
Tue, Jul 05, 2016 12:22 PM Review
This is a good resource to use when talking about storms. Many times students do have questions on what happens to the people and animals during a storm. For the most part we can tell students that people evacuate during a storm but this article helps students learn what happens to animals during a storm. This resource can be connected to weather, people, and animals. There are also resources available.
