Force and Motion
This scipack was very informational and helpful for peronal learning as well as for future teaching. The activities included made the concepts taught easier to understand and apply to real world. The assessments in each subtopic followed very closely to what was being taught. However, the final assessment seemed to be much more difficult and did not follow the content as much. Some questions were quite difficult and were far fetched.

I think this is a great way to get students involved and excited to learn/talk about weather. By incorporating the blogging aspect, the process and information becomes more relevant to students. Technology is becoming a big part of today's education so whenever it can be included, students typically are more involved. This can also be easily crossed with language arts for students' daily entries. Requiring students use the writing conventions properly. I also found it helpful that stduents are able to comment on their peers' ideas and vote on the individuals' entries that are most accurate.
