Stacy Mullings

Hello Dr. Swanson, Fellow Classmates and the NSTA Learning Community, My name is Stacy Mullings and I am looking forward to participating and sharing in this awesome science resource community. I have a B.S. in Chemistry and I am currently fulfilling matriculation for my Master of Arts in Teaching - Middle Grades Science and Mathematics. I hope to use these resources to help shape the lives of children in a way that they will make meaningful contributions to science and or even in their everyday lives now and in the future.

I recently came across DIY Holograms with a smart phone on YouTube that could be incorporated into Earth Science lessons. Students can work in pairs or small groups to make holograms that they can use to view 3-D images like the earth and sun, etc. I think this could be an engaging activity. S. Mullings

James, I really like the questioning strategy. It fosters the constructivist approach in the classroom. Students are apt to discover information as they probe their own ideas, constructing their own concepts. Teachers can continue to use questions strategically to guide students in the right direction without giving away solutions or answers. Best regards, S. Mullings
