Hi there! I'm a middle school teacher in California. I enjoy teaching, learning, and growing as a teacher. In my spare time I like to hike, read, and cook.

This was shared to me and I thought to pass it along.  There are many helpful and usable strategies. I'm currently using their cross cutting concepts and science/engineering practices. LINK

As you can see from the various posts here, there are many different and fun ways to make science vocabulary words come alive! Find one that grabs your interest and go from there.  If that doesn't work out, there are many more to fall back on ;-)

Stefanie, It would be difficult to teach a rock cycle lesson in just 45min with a hands-on activity and discussion.  You can introduce a phenomenon (short clip of video, image, etc) to engage students in exploring the why of rock formation with guided open questions and observations.  Then add in the hands-on activity later.

5 Real World Connection
I enjoyed reading the work from this book. It gives relevant, real world application that can be added to the classroom's activities to help students see the connection they are learning/love doing and the various possible STEM careers. It is a MUST read! Even better if share, especially to those undecided of the possibilities of their future in the STEM field.
