Hi Alyssa! There are SO many resources available on NSTA for this! My best recommendation for safe at-home experiments that students can do at home would be the Home Connections Collection by Kathleen Damonte. If you just search Home Connections in the search tab on NSTA they should all pop up! They have a bunch of experiments there for you to look at. I'm also going to attach a selection of a...

Hi Audrey, Just wanted to share, there are some really great resources out there that are aligned with the NGSS standards that you could take a look at. I know that Mystery Science and Better Lesson have the NGSS standards incorporated and they have some pretty neat lessons, interactive activities, and resources. If all else fails, I would recommend just googling what you are looking for. Ther...

Hi all! I'll be honest, I haven't really seen  any  science materials in my placement classrooms.

This collection has a nice variety of resources available! From ebooks to journal articles to added web pages, it makes the collection not so stationary and keeps it engaging. The materials address a bunch of content that is very useful to educators as they begin to divulge into the topic of Atomic Structure. The PhET Simulation was also a nice touch! I'd recommend adding this collection to your library.

This collection contains a plethora of resources that can be valuable to getting students engaged in the discussion of rocks. There is a ton of information here that can be beneficial to educators and there is even some cross-curriculum integration that really adds to the collection. My only disparity with this collection is one of the resources isn't available free to premium subscription members, but that isn't a huge problem for me personally. I think if you will find use from the resource, the money is worth it.

5 Wonderful!
I think that this collection has a really great layout and includes some wonderful resources. I think the Daily Do lesson has great connections and applications to the material and it seems like an engaging way to make sense of the topic. The external resources are also very interesting and add to the collection at hand. The interactive notebook adds a nice touch to the unit and I think it could be a neat independent/small group station assignment.
