Class experiments are fun and exciting and I love that my students are engaged in the lesson and they are able to express their excitment to learn but sometimes they can get a little out of hand and need some redirecting. I would like to see it anyone had any tips or ways to redirect students that will still allow them to be excited about learning and be engaged in the lesson.

I was curious to see if there are any tips or fun activities to use to teach about photosynthesis. I don't think I have seen any activities for this lesson and I would like to see how I can make this more enjoyable for my studenst.

I would like to learn about more actitivites that would get students excited and curious about this topic. I have already done the activity where we fill a cup of water halfway and then the other half is topped with shaving cream. After, we get food coloring and watch each drop fall through the shaving cream till it falls down to the water as if it was raining. My students really enjoyed this act...

5 Great Information
I decided to look for three NSTA resources for each lesson plan in order to help guide my activities and provide my students with all the necessary information on these topics. As I went through these resources, I was able to find articles that I felt would help me resonate the topics to the students that were going to be listening to my lesson. I thought that these resources gave me great information as to how to take on these topics and how it might be useful to present this information to the class. The one I found most interesting is the one that speaks about misconceptions. This stood out to me because I think that it is very important that students not only acquire new information, but also be able to go and correct passed interpretations that might be wrong about the topic. I feel that the students will be able to grow from the content in these articles and allow me to succeed as I teach these lessons.
