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.

Field Trips | Posted in Elementary Science

Last school year I was able to bring Marine science students (3 classes ) to coconut island in kaneohe, HI.  THey have a wonderful lab set up where students are able to view plankton under high magnifications as well as an opportunity to sort therough a sample of ocean into the many species. They also got to see the shark enclosures.    The students said it was a life changing experience.  Our 9th grade biology students were able to go to Papahana kuaola also in Kaneohe where they were able to work in the taro patch and collect invasive frogs fromt he stream.  

Now virtual trips may be available as well to be able to explore over seas.  THe feeling you get traveling with your classmates is second to none.

Periodic Table | Posted in Physical Science

I'm looking for the best way to teach the periodic table structure to 6th grade. My experience has been on the 9th grade level, so I'm not real sure how to approach the subject.
