I am looking for a way to captivate my 7th graders (urban school) with something on Fossils. The entire Chapter is Evolution of Living Things. The HOLT SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY book is good but I need more. I need some activities and labs to keep them moving. Thanks! Tim

Textbook fee Is needed! Our students love to defile them and damage them I have an iPad but our school district does not have any money for them. I have been looking over a few apps. Supposedly Microsoft office is coming to the iPad in September or so. APPS - Molar Mass - PTABLE is a web app I. It is a very interactive periodic table.

I use google docs for lots of great things such as: Contact information, documenting actual parent contact and result, attendance back up, discipline referrals / pink slips. Teachers share this information too.
