I find that students always enjoy BrainPop Videos as a means of introducing a new topic. It gets them excited and the videos also give them an introductory amount of factual information I also often utilize the many videos available on Youtube. I'm sure if you search you will be able to find a song or a cartoon about the topic your lesson is about.

Or even better, you can have the s...

You can teach the phases of the moon through direct observation or videos online. Time lapse videos are always very interesting to students. There is also a wall lamp you can buy which allows you to click through the phases of the moon and the lamp (which is formed to look like the moon itself) lights up and dims through the phases. Another method which would be interesting for the students would...

Interdependence: Animals and their environments Collection
Thu, Nov 03, 2016 5:16 PM Interdependence for Students
This collection has a great variety of information pertaining to organisms and the way they interact with their environments. Including an article about differentiated instruction I also helpful because a teacher must know that l student learn in different ways. With this, you can develop your lesson in away where all students will benefit and learn from it regardless of their learning style. I also like the incorporation of student notebooks to be used throughout learning science. Not only are they a great way for students to stay organized, but they allow for students to record their observations and ideas while monitoring their own growth.
How Plants and Animals Use Their Environment to Survive Collection
Fri, Apr 15, 2016 9:11 PM
This collection contains an array of resources. One of the resources is a chapter of a book which allows for students to be questioned on their prior knowledge of plants and animals sharing common life functions. This collection also contains a journal article which explores the interdependent relationships between plants, animals and other organisms in ecosystems. Another journal article is included in this collection is an article which is about teaching students to use their sense of smell as a means of observation while doing so safely. These resources have a central theme about teaching students the relationship, similarities and differences between animals and plants. These resources are great for future educators. Also, this collection meets the requirement of the minimum of six resources.
