Keeping Students Engaged | Posted in Elementary Science

Andrea, I think along with Katherine said about engaging and hands-on activities, students interpret and understand new information well when they can connect what they learn back to something they are familiar with in real life. In other words, creating meaningful activities and asking purposeful questions that help students think about the subject outside of school terms is a great tool when teaching. I also like KWL charts and flow maps that can help the teacher evaluate if the students have gotten the "big picture" out of the lesson.

Remote Learning and Citizen Science | Posted in Distance Learning

The SciStarter site https://scistarter.org/ has many interesting projects, both short- and long-term, that could be of interest to students and their families. I'm involved in several, including one where I analyze and catalog photographs from a wildlife refuge. No special skill or training is necessary, just time and a keen eye! -- Mary B
