Im interested in finding out how everyone uses this information.

I agree, I have been teaching for 3 years and i am constantly hearing about the new standards and the changes that will accompany the standards. I reviewed the new standards with a team of teachers and digested each standard for physical science and life science for middle school students, and i can truly say i think some of the standards are ridiculous. The wording is the biggest issue for me. ...

I took this sci-pack solely because i was interested in the topic, but as i think about the content i wonder how i can incorporate this into my curriculum. I do not teach environmental science, so it is difficult for me to really use this information. But an area where i have found to lend its self to this content is when teaching about bacteria and bioremediation. I have found it to be an interesting lesson when teaching about human impact on the earth and how we use bacteria to clean up some of our waste we create. Most students think of bacteria as these bad organisms when they really do more helpful things than harmful. I have found the students engaged and interested in the lesson. Overall this is a great sci-pack because it taught me things that i forgot or simply didn't know. It is full of great information and can be applied to almost any grade level/
