NSTA Name Change Discussion | Posted in NSTA New Name

Welcome!  Thank you for joining your fellow NSTA members in this discussion forum. 

This morning in St. Louis, I will make the announcement that the NSTA Board of Directors recommended that we change our association name from the National Science Teachers Association to the National Science Teaching Association. Background information about this decision and the voting process is available here and in the upcoming issue of NSTA Reports.

I look forward to your comments, thoughtful reflection, and response to this recommendation and hope that in the end, you will join us by casting your vote for Science Teaching!

Margaret, What a wonderful way to include play in an inclusive setting. Play does help with those kinds of concerns about ability. Best, Arlene

Field Trips | Posted in Elementary Science

Hello, 

On some of the field trips I have taken my students on, I always make sure there is something to hold the students accountable for their learning when on field trips. I have created scavenger hunts for the when we have gone to the zoo. For example, I had student write down one of the "facts" posted by an animals habitat and they would have to write it down and connec it to if its a mammal, reptile, etc..
