Tue, Mar 27, 2012 2:19 AM in Making Science FUN!
You definitely sound enthusiastic and passionate about teaching science which is unfortunately something many teachers lack. These days, it's all about math and reading. However, I remember in Elementary School, science was the best part because my teachers made it so fun, interactive, and hands-on. We got to do cool experiments, touch things, and make messes. It was so fun that it didn't even see...

This is definitely a helpful handout for teachers who are teaching whatever grade because it includes useful guides for each level from Elementary to High School.

Tue, Feb 21, 2012 4:06 PM Interesting Read on Poor Pluto
Growing up in the 90's, I will forever know Pluto as the ninth planet. When learning about the planets, I was always taught the mnemonic, My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us the NIne Planets which I still use today regardless of what recently happened. Nowadays, it's interesting how the new standby mnemonic has changed as well. Nevertheless, this article was definitely an interesting read. I never really understood why Pluto had to be classified as a dwarf planet, so this was an insightful reading. It is also useful for teachers because it even includes a "Question for Students" section and displays a chart of the planets and dwarf planets and how they compare with each other. Overall, this article definitely helped explain the reasoning for Pluto's new classification in way that teachers can explain to their own students as well.
