This is such an interesting topic to focus on! I really enjoy history and dinosaurs so I love that you want to teach about this! I did some digging and I came across this amazing teacher blog: https://smartchickteacher.wordpress.com/2012/10/18/four-types-of-fossils/ ' target="_blank"> https://smartchickteacher.wordpress.com/2012/10/18/four-types-of-fossils/ " target="_blank"> http...

As a current preservice teacher I think some of the best advice I have received has come from some of my professors. Do the lesson yourself first, see what you find to be boring and what you find to be engaging. This gives you a chance to change the lesson before you do it in class. I also think doing the lesson yourself first allows you to truly understand what is going on and beco...

I love this question because I can definitely relate. I am amazed by how curious young children are and it provides educators with the ability to learn through their eyes.
A friend of mine actually did a really cool absorption experiment in her VPK classroom that I think would transition well into kindergarten. She took water, droppers, cups, paper towel, construction paper, wa...

Inquiry Into Action: Ecosystems and Animals
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 7:09 PM Amazing connections
This article discusses the connection between field trips to the zoo and aquarium and the learning that takes place in the classroom. I really enjoyed this article because I believe it is extremely important that we educate our students about the world around them. They must understand how we effect the earth and the animals. This article provides a lesson on how students can help save a species that is going extinct. It provides differentiated instruction tips and classroom management tips. I really enjoyed that the article emphasized how important it is to have a conversation about the field trip and what is learned about the different species.
Strategies for ELL Success

I liked how the author organized the article. Engage discusses how teachers provide a demonstration of a concept by relating it to real world experiences. Explore is allow the student to experience the world around them so they are an active part of the classroom. Develop surprised me because I have always been taught that you need to introduce the vocabulary at the very beginning, not in the middle. Apply is making the connection between the real world and their experience. This reminded me of a 5E lesson because it has some very similar aspects.
Making Science Accessible: Strategies to Meet the Needs of a Diverse Student Population
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 6:52 PM Useful
This article discusses the importance of providing a classroom environment that allows all students of all populations to be comfortable, also one that is completely accessible. It addresses that we should be aware and create awareness that students with disabilities should not be looked down upon, rather they should be provided the appropriate resources to excel. Students with disabilities have appropriate accommodations/modifications and educators needs to be aware of those accommodations/modifications and provide them. The article also provides a list of possible accommodations/modifications for all disabilities. I think it is useful for those who have not been exposed to the accommodations/modifications, but I think it is missing quite a bit of information because there is an endless supply of accommodations/modifications.
