Hi everyone,    We are planning on developing some Common Assessments for 1st-5th grade in Life, Earth and Physical Science.  I was wondering if anyone had some ideas where to start or places where some examples already exist?  Thanks so much Chris

This sounds like such a great idea!  Is there any specific instructions (handouts) you can share with this activity? Thanks so much

Hi everyone,   Does anyone have either a great demo or inquiry lab to help 6th graders understand a little about the movement and causes of ocean currents? Thanks so much

5 Great Review of Geology
I was impressed with this sci-pack and the use of many analogies I could use in the classroom to help my students understand hard to visualize concepts in Geology! Well Done!
