Anything to do with nature, I am a fan of when teaching science. The more hands on the better! If it was up to me, my students and I would go deep sea diving! But since not every school has that type of budget, we'll have to make due! Teaching about the ocean can be a lot of fun. Theres something that every child can connect to in the lesson. Wether it's there favorite animal being a dolphin, a cr...

I live in Florida where our seasons consist of heat and humidity or heat, humidity and rain! Something I've seen teachers do, during my observations are fun, hands on experiments for the seasons such as make your own snow (winter), creating a garden with flowers that specifically bloom in spring, have your students create the perfect beach day using the information your teaching them. Anything you...

When it comes to a subject like Coral Reefs, something that is so massive and amazing that you have to see it to believe it, I think a lot of hands on and visual lessons would be really helpful in having your students connect with the lesson.

5 So thoughtful and definitely needed!
I was very happy to see someone had created a collection that catered to special needs. As a Special Education major, I thought this hit the mark! It was great to include articles that was not just for elementary students but for middle and high school as well. I really enjoyed the survey for teachers part of the PDF file. it made me think about my approach to the classroom and how I would work with special needs. Also the strategies for a successful inclusion class were very helpful. Another thing I liked reading about was that inclusion seemed to be very helpful when teaching special needs children in the classroom. i personally am a believer in Inclusion if it fits the child's needs. This collection is extremely helpful for teachers in helping them realize that there is not just one type of learner in the classroom. This collection will help teachers find different approaches to a diverse classroom.
