I am currently a fifth grade teacher that is about to begin an educational journey of a lifetime! I am helping design and open a new school that is a STREAM Academy. We will begin with grades 3 through 5. Over time, we will grow this school to be a 3-12 academy. Beyond excited to be on this journey!

Never mind! I found my personal results and I actually knew the answer, just clicked the wrong one. Really great information!

Thanks for posting this. I took it and got one wrong...wish I knew which one! I am going to present to my staff and possibly my district this year. I think I might use this to begin my presentation. I enjoyed reading the article that went along with the quiz. Thanks!

I just completed my first Scipack and I also feel a little frustrated. I did pass but I really wanted to know what I specifically missed so that I could go back and make sure that I understand my mistakes. That would be especially helpful before I teach that topic. Any suggestions?

5 Force and Motion: Newton's First Law
I found this object helpful. The animation helps to clear up some misconceptions that students may have. I will use the animation sections in my classes.

5 Deeper Understanding
A great resource for creating a deeper understanding of a topic. An easy, not threatening way to push yourself to a better understanding.

Great resource! I found many links to journals and activities that I will be able to use with my students. Can't wait to link some of these to my class website!
