Hi all! In my first semester of student teaching, I have learned a ton about how to make math lessons engaging (I am in a 3rd grade Math/Science class and I love it!) But often times, science can be cut short because we've spent a lot of time in math which means the lessons are short and students don't get the chance to really explore the topics we discuss. I'm posting because I want to know if anyone could give some tips on how to change this or maybe give ideas for things we could do at science stations! (Just general ideas, not for any topic specifically) Thank you!

Hello, Have you tried incorporating science into other subjects such as math and language arts? Science requires an understanding of numbers and equations, as well as comprehension skills in order to investigate different topics. This method would expose them to more science topics, and show them how essential it is to their overall education. Example: Language arts-> Read a book about the life cycle of flowers Math-> Math problems related to flowers. "Michael picked 15 flowers from his mom's garden. He planted 6 seeds to replace the flowers he picked. How many more seeds does he need to plant to replace all the flowers?" Science-> What are the parts and function of a flower?
