I am an 8th grade science teacher, and have been for the last 7 years. Before that I taught 7th and 6th grade, for a total of 19 years science teaching experience! I am interested in becoming vastly knowledgable in my science field. I also enjoy playing softball, excercising, spending time with my three sons and the New York Yankees!!

That looks pretty darn close to the one I used. It works well for the students to grasp the concept. I had students make them and keep in their science folders, and then we used them to coincide with the current moon phase.

An Energy Unit is being implemented this year for our 8th grade. Thank you for the additional resources to help!

Love the interactives on this one! I am always looking for new ways to show how the plates move and the reactions of the plates moving for my students. These were so helpful and explained in a way that makes it easy for my students to understand.

I found this sciobject to be very helpful in both making connections between different objects in our sky (sun, stars) and in clearing up some mis-conceptions about the same.

good resource for simplifying, breaking down and classifying energy, a difficult concept to grasp!
