I am a third grade teacher in Fairbanks, Alaska. I love to go running in the summer and cross country ski in the winter. I have two children, who I love to travel around and watch them play their sports. I am a firm believer in After-School programs for all children. Currently I teach first and second graders in our school's after school program in STEM activities. I am always looking for ways to teach them STEM activities at their developmental level. Living here in the North, we are seeing climate change at a fast rate and I am very interested in learning ways to teach students on ways they can adapt to these changes.

I teach an after-school program to primary students (1st and 2nd). And wondering if there are any developmentally appropriate and easy chemistry lessons that I can possibly teach in my program? Thanks so much!!

5 Healthy Food
I am passionate about how farms treat their soils and plants before shipping out to the people. I want to teach my students that starting a community garden is easy and healthier for you.

This is great information. My students love creating ramps and studying force and motion, this was great background knowledge in helping me teach this unit.
