I can relate to this so much! I am also not big on science, sadly. HOWEVER, listening to your students and seeing what piques their interests is going to be key. If you have a love for students, then you'll have a love for what they want to learn about. By this I mean, see what questions they ask about life and make lessons from those!

I think making sure that ties to a standard is always first, obviously. However, assuming it does, making tornado bottles is always fun! For hurricanes, doing something as simple as using food dye and a bowl of water can demonstrate how fast a hurricane moves and the directionality. For volcanoes, making paper volcanoes that look like a volcano on the outside, but show magma on the inside are coo...

This gave awesome ideas on how to help students understand the rock cycle.

However, that would depend on where one would have this fall in their instruction.

This is a great activity that one may do in a bigger setting. Having an investigation or multiple investigations like the ones in this would be fantastic.

It would be good to direct the energy into a learning experience and have them learn all the things this article mentions they could learn!
