My goal is to educate my students on nutrition and encourage them to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

I believe that at the beginning of the school year the students should be told the general safety rules. They should already know these rules but it is always helpful to review the most important rules. Before specific assignments and experiments the students should be told the exact procedures they are expected to follow. This will allow the students to have the information fresh in their minds. ...

I agree! I think science notebooks are an essential part of the class. Students use this notebooks for their notes, experiments, observations, data collections, and reflections. They have these notebooks that they could look back on and review what was previously learned. Some teachers actually get very creative with these journals. Students do enjoy having a science notebook and adding informatio...

I believe that gardening in the classroom or even the school is a great idea for children. As you said, they are very interested in the topic. They love the idea of watching grow over time and seeing the changes. Students can learn a lot from this process. You can incorporate lessons about plant parts and their jobs such as making the food for the plant. Something else to consider is planting vege...

Stars in the Sky Collection
Wed, Mar 23, 2016 11:31 AM Great Collection!
You have created a wonderful collection that you could use in your future classroom. This is a topic that I believe students are very interested in learning about. I have always found this topic very intriguing. It is fun to learn about and offers numerous experimental and observational projects. The students can engage in star, moon, and sun observations similar to the one we just took part in. They can also be given constellations to research. You can incorporate this material to serve as a purpose for a field trip. The Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum in Miami has a show that focuses on constellations and their history. It also contains many other science games and interactions for students. These artifacts can be used in a science classroom as well as any other learning environment to provide your students with further knowledge in the subject matter. I love that you have included various amounts of sources such as articles, book chapters, and science objects. This variation keeps grasps the students' attention and does not lead to boredom as if they were to see the same format over and over again. The resources presented in this collection range from a broad overview of the Earth, sun, and moon to specific information about stars and constellations. The general information can be used as a introduction and set. As the lessons progress, the more explicit content can be taught and viewed.

Raheem Kilani’s collection, Teaching Science, is a great collection and a useful tool that all educators should have access to. It is a basic guide to teaching science in elementary schools. It includes articles about inquiry and ways to inquirize lessons. Students’ safety is addressed throughout the collection. Informational pieces of students’ misconceptions as well as the concepts that students should know based on their grade level are provided. This collection will be of great use to any elementary school teacher. It includes all these resources filled of facts. Teachers can use this to gain ideas about inquiry lessons, the amount of knowledge their students should already know, and the importance of safety in the science classroom. As a future educator I find all these topic extremely important. Thank you Raheem for providing such essential resources that can be used.
