I am currently a student at Wright State University studying Early Childhood Education. I have a great appreciation for a well rounded education, and I hope one day I will have a classroom that includes many multi dimensional projects that extends past the standards. I love my family, and I enjoy running and drinking coffee.

My physics class in college started the class off with a "who done it" type of scenario. Each group received an envelope of "clues" about a murder. The whole point of the lesson was that things in science aren't always obvious, especially in physics. The professor related it to the nature of science. I think this would be appealing to the students in a creative way. Who doesn't love to solve a mys...

I might steal this idea as well! I love the innate connection between science and reading. it would also be a great reference point in the classroom when learning about the planets. For older students, I think it would be difficult to post student success in such a public manner, so maybe using the planets to do center work could be a good way to track students on a regular basis. Love the idea!

Building off the idea of the scavenger hunt, I think it would a good cycle to then have the students create their own scavenger hunt later in the year. Based on their interests or a research project, they could create their own scavenger hunt for the other students in the class. Each week could have a different scavenger hunt presented for the rest of the class (and teacher) to work on. (Also a go...

There were a couple typos during the assessment, but the simulations and information were great. I thought the assessment included questions that were situational, and were not addressed well in the objects.

This lesson was written for 5th grade students. Students will recognize different characteristics about the planets, and describe why earth is habitable. It is important that students realize the vastness of space and the sun’s importance to sustaining not only human life, but it’s impact on our solar system. Standards include: Ohio Standards: Topic: Cycles and Patterns in the Solar System Content Statement: The solar system includes the sun and all celestial bodies that orbit the sun. Each planet in the solar system has unique characteristics. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.5.1.A Come to discussions prepared, having read or studied required material; explicitly draw on that preparation and other information known about the topic to explore ideas under discussion.
