Another Great Pack of Resources.
I found this Sci-Guide to be ver insightful and helpful to my class and I when learning about Heredity. While I knew I had a basic understanding of how traits were passed down genetically his Sci-guide provided many great lessons and ideas which benefited my teaching. In Addition, the Sci-Guide gave many useful resources like links to other websites and resources which provided even more support for my students. The baby building lesson went right with what I wanted to teach my students about why we have the eye and hair color we do in addition to other traits we are born with. I also found the student samples to very helpful with assessments for myself and the students. I know that I will use this resource again in the future if it is available to add just a little more to my lessons.

Nice Resource can be used with other incets
When I was looking for a Sci-guide I was looking for something that would relate more to the topic I was covering which was termites. This Sci-gude focuses on butterflies but there was an section on insect and there life cycles. The resources on this Sci-guide were more information for the students which was enough for them to complete their project and assignments. Again this is a great website and I hope it is continued to be offered to the teachers in Hawaiia s wella s the rest of the country.

This was a pretty good resource to help support my lesson with my fifth graders. While I wasn't able to use all of the material the information I got from this Sci-guide was very helpful to me. As I stated I didn't use the guide directly but it did guide me in the information that I taught them. The student enjoyed the websites linked in the Sci-guide especially the energy ant. This entire site and the Sci-packs and guides are a great help to me and I'm sure to many teachers.
