For Those About To Rock…

I have been diligently working on this pack for what feels like FORVER…and I finally got to try it out with my class last week and I have to say, it ROCKED! (excuse the pun…but this pack is full of them!) Ok, so the title sort of dates me…a little shout out to all those AC/DC fans out there. You can find the pack {here}

Science Vocabulary Strategy: Acrostic — The Science Penguin

One of the things my students have enjoyed in the past is creating an acrostic with one of the science vocabulary words. It challenges them to think of new ways to describe a word by having a specific letter to work with. Here is how I would suggest introducing this idea. I would suggest trying […]

Science Matters

This post is the fifth in a series of posts about a CSI program I ran at our library. You can read the background information here and here and here and here. For Day 4 we performed the dirt analysis. It was fairly straight-forward and completed without much fanfare. The students once again enjoyed taking the information they collected and comparing it to the map that was provided and then matching up that information with what they found in the suspect bios. Day 5 was DNA analysis day. We…

The Rock Cycle Cootie Catcher

It is my hope that this is not only addictive for your students, but addictive for you as well! Cootie catchers (or fortune tellers) are a great way to "trick" your students into learning without them even knowing it. Concepts in science are based around students first understanding the vocabulary a...

Rock Cycle

Today we learned about the rock cycle. At first glance the rock cycle looks a bit overwhelming. Breaking down the rock cycle has helped us understand that rocks change over time. Today we made rock cycle bracelets to help us remember the 3 types of rocks (Sedimentary, Metamorphic & Igneous) and to help us understand how heat, pressure & erosion play into the transformation of rocks. See if we can tell you what each bead represents. (Shiny brown Sedimentary, Orange- Magma/heat transforming…
