I am currently a student teacher in a kindergarten classroom, and I definitely have noticed the struggle that the teachers I have observed have making time for incorporating a science lesson. My mentor teacher this semester typical will incorporate a fun brainpop video over the lesson, and then together as a class she will have the students complete a little booklet with pictures and limited fill in the blank spaces. Once completed the students glue it into their science journal. Typically a lesson like this takes 15-20 mins, and it's memorable for the students as well.

I am currently a preservice teacher and I am getting an endorsement in STEM. I think if you are struggling to make time to teach science then a great way to get incorporate more science curriculum is too integrate it into other disciplines. There are many lessons online that incorporate literacy connections into design challenges. If you can create or find some engaging design challenges based off the literature your students are already reading, it will successfully bring more science content into your classroom.
