Hello Jacquelyn. Every child is interested as long as they are stimulated. Therefore, visuals, hand-on and minds-on activities engage the students. I was not interested much in science as a child but always became interested when we conducted experiments, dissected, built, etc. Science is not everyone's cup of tea but it is our duty as educators or future educators to instill it in their little m...

Inquiry based learning is a teaching strategy that I am effectively learning about in my current course. It is a great strategy that I plan to use in my future classroom. Students are engaged, understanding and taking ownership of their learning. What is important to always have included in an inquiry based lesson plan?

5 Interesting & Educational Collection
"Whoo Eats What" is a great book chapter lesson that reflects the 5E's. The lesson ideas are clear and easy enough for the students to follow. In addition, I like how the lessons are broken up by grade levels. "What Does an Animal Eat" is engaging for the students. It is great that it breaks it into two special aspects of hungry animals: how their teeth and beaks offer clues about what they eat and how the food chain helps make sure there’s enough for all. The book has a phenomenal foundation for students regarding animal adaptation. "Science Sampler:Interactive Interdependence" article describes a food web in which students become the organism within the web and connect to other organisms using string to do this. Students realize how all organisms within the web are affected even if that challenge only occurs to one of the organisms. Great activity to do within the classroom. "Interdependence of Life:Species Relationships" addresses the complexity of species relationships. Gave great examples of all of the different types of relationships that plants and animals have with one another, including mutualism, commensalism, amensalism, neutralism, and parasitism. This guide can help children be more responsible and increase their understanding of the environment. "Interdependence of Life:Population Balance in Biomes" explains living and non-living things and how they interact with the surroundings in your ecosystem. The activity is great because it tests you after everything you read and allows you to check the understanding of everything that is being taught. "Exploring Animals, Glossopedia Style" is a wonderful resource that can be used in the classroom. Each article contains text, photo galleries, video clips, audio files, maps, interactive features, and content-related vocabulary lessons. The PowerPoint Planner is a tool I would like to incorporate in my future classroom. This is a great collection with much resourceful information.
