Thank you for sharing. These are wonderful resources. I am currently student teaching in Pre-K classroom. Integrating science that grade level is such a challenging thing because of time, classroom management and available tools. These are excellent resources.

Cells is a more complex idea for students to grasp especially young minds who are still wrapping their mind around life science. Here's a useful website that I found that has engaging activities to help elementary students with the concept of cells http://www.kathimitchell.com/cells.html.

These are all awesome resources to use in the classroom. I heavily rely on PBS Kids.org. The websites are free, easy to use, and safe for all learners. http://pbskids.org/games/science/
