Hi Sayde, I find it extremely beneficial to keep a science notebook/journal. I am studying to be a teacher and in my teaching science class we keep a science journal. I think it is a great way to stay organized and reflect, because in our journals we take class observational notes on experiments and activities we do in class, we write down any questions that our professor wants us to respond to, a...

Hi Uma, in my experience of working with students with ADHD in my tutoring, something that I have found is that they are very tactile and visual. Something that I have done in the past to help them to be organized is to make a to-do list on a sticky note The to-do list could also be on paper, but I have found that because the sticky-note could be a vibrant color or pattern the students like it mor...

I personally find it sad  that time for science has lessened greatly in the classroom, but I agree that it could be possible to incorporate science throughout the day and with other subjects, or in playtime like you suggested.

5 Great Collection!
I think this is a great collection, especially as a future educator, to study the Solar System and learn more about it. I enjoyed going through the resources. I especially liked going through the Science Objects, because it's not going through the whole Scipack, it's being able to focus on certain aspects of the solar system. I also found the NASA website to be very informative on each planet, I plan on going through these resources to help study the Solar System because it's such an interesting topic for me. Overall great collection!

I think you did a good job with this collection, I really like that you focused on plants and coral reefs. I was always interested in coral reefs when I was in school and I think that introducing not only land plants, but plants in the coral reef is important to do in elementary so that students can grasp an overall concept that plants are alive whether they are land plants or water plants. :)
