Hi Gladys, I recently created and executed an inquiry-based lesson on the food chain. I decided to stick to a specific ecosystem, the Everglades. I made information cards on the plants and animals that live in the Everglades. You can have the students draw or color the animals on the information cards before they read and take note of the information. Then students are to make an individual or ...

Hi Leslie, I like to think of STEM as inquiry-based learning but with science, technology, engineering or math integration. There are specific standards that must be met, but there are so many resources that one can use. I personally love to go on Pinterest, there are so many ideas that can be used in the classroom and you can use it for FREE! You can also use TeacherPayTeachers for activities ...

4 Living vs. Nonliving Review - Idania Caceres
Hi Sophie, I think you have three strong resources in your Living vs. Nonliving collection. My favorite out of the three is the "Living or Nonliving?" journal article. I like how it provides you with lesson ideas and examples on how to direct students' misconceptions. "Plants on the Move" is a good resource, since it also provides you with multiple examples and ideas on how to develop a lesson or ask engaging questions on this material. I would like you to look into "Science Shorts: Is This Alive?" by: Deborah Roghaar and Kimberly Lott. I think this journal article will contribute to some of the resources you have available. It is based on real-life experiences and I am sure you can use a lot of the information given. Best of luck!
