Project-based learning in a geology classroom | Posted in Evaluation and Assessment

Hi Anna --

The February issue of NSTA's Science Scope has the theme of project-based learning. Although this is a middle school journal, I suspect that the activities could be ramped up a bit for high school. There are good articles on co-designing projects with students and managing group work.

STEM and Fairy Tales | Posted in STEM

I think this would be great to use. I believe that STEM needs to be expanded for our younger students and what better way than to incorporate engineering and fairy tales into the lesson. It's hands on and fun. Even though I'm student teaching currently in the fourth grade classroom, I can see myself using some of these activities with my older students who are kinesthetic learners.

Making Musical Instruments | Posted in Informal Science

Thank you for sharing this post. I have a science unit that  I do with my preschoolers, kitchen band, which is experimenting with sounds found in the kitchen.  Never thought of using a carrot to make an instrument.  It's intriguing to notice that you can make musical instruments out of almost anything.  Thanks again for sharing.
