Hi Julienne,  Thank you for this resource. In one of my credential courses, we were talking about being resourceful and trying to make instruments using recyclables. This will be great to share with my classmates. It is engaging for all kids and affordable for the teachers.

Hi Cindy, I recently went to a conference that talked about the teaching students through play. Sometimes as teachers we enforce the curriculum and expect so much from our students. We learned a lot about the brain and research shows students will master the skill more when engaged through play. I enjoyed reading the article. Thank you.

Hi Rochelle,  I recently went to a science museumm for one of my science course and I had lots of fun. I took my 5 year old daughter to this field trip and she was engaged throughout the museum. As we walked around, I took notes of what was engaging and what was aligned to what I was teaching in my classroom. I hope this helps me when I plan a field trip for my class.
