NSTA National Conference in LA | Posted in Northrop Grumman Foundation Teachers Academy 2017
We will be meeting in just two weeks! I have enjoyed reading the introductions each of you have posted as it gives me faces with names- thank you!
Attached is a short PowerPoint you can view that covers some helpful information as you get ready to travel to LA.
Please review this at your earliest convenience. If you have any questions after viewing please post them here in the forum and I will reply in a timely manner.
Periodic Table | Posted in Physical Science
I have used a few techniques that have really helped. One of them is Periodic Table Battleship. This was even fun for the Chemistry students. I also have an interactive Periodic Table that they can log in with their cellphone and pull up realistic examples of the elements. I have also found interactive tables online. I also have written the elements out on index cards and they have to split into groups and the first team to lay them out correctly on the floor is the winner!
NSTA Daily Do! | Posted in Distance Learning
Wow - this is a great resource. So glad this was put together so quickly, especially in light of COVID-19. I think one of the greater things I have seen come from this pandemic is that families with young learners have come together to work on school-administered content. One of the biggest content areas I've seen featured is science! This resource is a great way to get children engaged in what NSTA called "sensemaking." I especially love the content, such as the "Why is our fruit turning brown?" Daily Do! When students see firsthand experiences of scientific principles in such a natural context, their understanding becomes that much deeper. This is a great tool that I will definitely pass on!
