Sat Apr 21, 2012 7:10 PM in Technology in your science lessons
When I recently attended the NSTA conference in New Orleans I was struck by how much technology many classrooms were using. I teach in a very rural area and they don't have access to computers in their homes or a nearby library. School is the only access to technology for many of my students. What are ways you are addressing this in your elementary classrooms? I have four computers, a smartboard, ...

5 excellent collection!!
I believe your collection was great! Especially since health is extremely important to everyone especially our children. As teachers, we should make sure that we are incorporating nutrition into our curriculum. Students can learn a lot about nutrition through science. It will keep them engaged especially since eating is part of their lives. Your resources are very helpful in letting teachers understand all these important factors.

5 Great Collection!
Your collection was very creative and informative. I think it’s important and true what you mentioned that in our schools, teachers don’t go too much into depth about the sun. Some students don’t even know that the sun is a star. These resources are very informative for teachers that are considering teaching more about the sun. I really enjoyed the article on trade books as well. Overall, your collection was one of the most interesting!
