As a pre-service teacher, I could use some advice or things to expect when I start teaching full-time. Any good resources, classroom management, etc. recommendations or tips are needed :)

How effective is groupwork over individual work? Is It better for students to think and discuss with their peers or is It better for students to learn for themselves individually?

I completely agree that safety is a priority in the classroom. With different chemicals, substances, etc., accidents are bound to happen. But showing students how to take preventative measures or how to act when an accident happens, is something very important. Going over details throughly is a way to go before every lab or activity. Better safe than sorry!

This lesson / activity is a great way for students to integrate STEM knowledge to construct a model of Earth's natural filtration system. The article provided good questions to ask students to get them thinking about the concept. However, I would like to have seen more information as to what materials will be effective and appropriate with different age levels and more information as to why it is important.

This activity is a great, fun, easy activity that teachers can conduct in the classroom AND students can even take it home and try it out as well. The extension activity also was a great idea to let students apply science to create a great bouquet of flowers at home too. I like how the article includes background information as to how and why water is able to travel up plants and such, which is good for parents and students to be able to understand when they are trying it out at home.
