It went great! The students had a lot of fun and they learned the concepts I taught. Arlene, I actually used the website and it helped students wrap their heads around what what happening with the roller coasters. Thank you!

Thank you everyone for your responses! I am actually writing up the lessons for a science methods course I am taking at my university. However, the grade that I am focusing on is 6th grade.

Hi everyone! I have to create a unit for my methods of teaching science class. I decided to focus on space science, but it is so board. I do not where to begin and what to focus on. I also have to write an introductory lesson. What are some introductory lessons or activities I can use if I decided to focus on the planets or the moon? Thank you!

5 Excellent collection of resources for the classroom
The collection has great resources for any science teacher to use in the classroom. The resources both focus on tackling students misconceptions and general knowledge about the solar system and its workings. I believe the author of the collection chose wisely each of the collection items placed in the solar system collection. I especially liked the journal article “Perspectives: A (Mis)Understanding of Astronomical Proportions.” This is because not only does it focus on students misconceptions, but it also offers strategies and ideas that can be used in the classroom to address students understanding. Moreover, the author chose various collection items that answers questions that students will certainly have such as why pluto is not a planet any longer and the weather on other planets. Lastly, the author incorporated collection items that includes integration of inquiry, use of models, and visuals (art) in to this science so students can draw connections between different subjects.

The article highlights the process in which students conduct inquiries and investigation. The process is well organized in various focuses to enable any teacher/instructor to use the lessons in their classroom. The article also does a great explanation of students involvement both in the classroom and outdoors while utilizing the the scientific approach to inquiry through observations and evaluation of data. Lastly, throughout the focuses, student involvement is key.
