I am currently a second year teacher. I recently started a new job with the Propel Charter schools teaching one section of Environmental Science and four sections of Physical Science. Although I am currently living in Pittsburgh, I grew up in South Jersey. I came to Pittsburgh for college and decided to stick around because I have grown to love the city.

5 Cube Activity
Although I didn't try the raisin activity, I think the cube activity is a great first week of school activity to get the students used to the nature of science! It is a challenging but fun way to explore observations and inferences.

Great activity to get students thinking and talking science. Highly recommended!

5 Great Content
I recently started teaching an unit on energy. This science object was a great tool to help me refresh on the content before I teach it to my students! It also had some good resources for me to show and share with my students.
