I currently teach in a Pre-Kindergarten Classroom. I have notice children at this age are very interested in science activities and incorporate these into our lesson plans daily. I am also working for my BA in Early Childhood Development and Elementary Education Majors.

Hello, I'm a Pre-Service Teacher in Iowa. I am curious to know what science-led field trips you have planned for your classroom? How did you introduce the field trip? Any tips you would like to share on preparing a science-led field trip?

Thank you for sharing this post. I have a science unit that I do with my preschoolers, kitchen band, which is experimenting with sounds found in the kitchen. Never thought of using a carrot to make an instrument. It's intriguing to notice that you can make musical instruments out of almost anything. Thanks again for sharing.

Paper Towers: Building students' understandings of technological design
Thu, Nov 16, 2017 4:07 PM Paper Towers
Currently I am a pre service teacher and taking a teach science class. In class we did this lesson. We used literacy by making a graph on the dry erase board. Had a challenge to make the tallest paper tower using only 3 pieces of paper and a limited amount of tape within 15 minutes. Surprisingly I did not read this article before, but very informational. I was engaged and feel students would be just as engaged.

I have used the 5E model for my Integration Arts class
This is a pretty simple and easy model to follow with the 5 E phases. This article is also great at explaining how each phase works with details on how to twerk the lesson to your specific needs.
