I've noticed the same at different schools I have interned at. I'm also a college student doing field hours and what I have tried to do is find science lesson that incorporates things they experience in their daily life. for example, I taught push and pull to kindergarteners and gave them examples such as pushing someone on a swing, opening the door, or tucking their chair.

Hello! I feel one big scientific misconception is that everything revolves around the scientific method. For inquiry based assignments, you must first conduct the research and collect data.

Hello, I definitely think this its good idea for students to write a daily reflection in a journal. We do this in my "teaching science" class at FIU and it definitely helps me think back to everything we went over and reflect on what i liked, didn't like, and what i learned that day. It's also a great tool for students to keep track of what they did each day.

You found some very interesting journal articles. I love that you included so many of them. I found it to be very interesting and I learned a lot from it! I like that you thought to break the mold of scientific method and think about inquiry. The two book chapters you included are also very helpful and informative. I really enjoyed looking through your collection!
Oceans and Weather Collection
Tue, Nov 24, 2015 5:14 PM Excellent!
I like this collection! I think scipacks are an excellent tool to use to teach a concept. I love that in this collection there are different science objects as well as complete scipack to learn more about the topic. I started doing one of the science objects and it really drew my attention. In the little that I did, I learned a lot! I also really like that you included a book chapter, it appeals to those who learn better by simply reading the information. Excellent job putting together this wonderful collection about the Oceans and weather.
How organisms interact with their environment Collection

This collection was great, I feel that these resources are an excellent way to teach students all about organisms and their environment. The scipack that we completed is here and i think that it was most definitely very useful and helpful! I find all scipacks to be an excellent tool to use in the classroom and with all the information this collection holds, it will be very easy to form a lesson with relevant information towards the topic being taught!
