I agree that in schools today it seems like they are trying to get rid of science and social studies and that this is making it harder to do them in the classroom because of the emphasis on math and language arts. Like some of the others I agree that you should try and set aside time where you can do science because it is important for the students to learn about it. One thing that I would try to...

I think depending on what age you are teaching helps to decide what is the best way to inrtoduce these scientists. I am currently a preservice teacher at the Ohio State University and just completed my science methods and one interesting thing that I learned to introduce a topic is to read the students a book about the scientist that you are learning about. Now this technique works much better wi...

5 Fossils
I really like this book as it allows you to have ten already made lessons to do for a fossil dig that are really easily broken down and easy to use. I used this book when I did a unit on fossils and this book made it so easy to do the fossil dig and allow the students to learn what I wanted them to learn. Another thing that I like about this book is that it allows you to play with the students imagination as you can pretend like someone is asking you to do the fossil dig and from experience the students really like this part.

5 Fossils
I like this article because it provides many different lessons about how to show students how to date fossils. I like this article because it would allow you to build upon the fossil dig activity that was already done and this article would allow you to continue building upon what the students are learning.

5 Fossils
I think that this would be a really fun and good activity to do in a school because it is something that could be used by all the grades at that school. I like this activity because it would allow the students to be outside and it could better help to reach many different modalities that students may have and this is something that I am always looking for to help students to learn. This is something that I would like to do someday in the future when I am a teacher at a school.
