Make the activity/lesson as relatable to their personal interests as possible! Differentiate your instruction to meet all of their needs, and most importantly, get to know your students! If you know they do not care for this topic, think about what they do care for or like and try tying it into the lesson somehow. Good luck!

This is a great idea! I had never thought about using theater/drama in the science curriculum! This would also be a great ice breaker activity, because the students will have to work together and let their guard down a little, to act silly and fun. I love it!

I believe anything that involves play, movement, music, and hands-on activities is a great lesson for the younger ones! Plan every lesson around play, they are too young to sit for long periods of time and do worksheets or listen to you talk. If all else fails, dig into pinterest!!!! It has been my best friend as a student teacher this year! Good Luck!
