I am teaching middle school science after teaching in elementary school since 2003. I am blessed to have an amazing family, friends, coworkers, and students.

So often the thought of involvement is $$$$ or time (that people don't always have). Simple things to involve the community or families can be as simple as collecting items you might need in the science lab. Plastic bottle that can be used for tornado models. Film containers (some people still use them). The list is really endless and once they warm up to the simple requests you can kick it up...

I find this topic very interesting and I too plan to look into it further. My concern is my students that do not have the technology to complete the home viewing.

Has anyone utilized the Gizmos programs. I just moved to a middle school after 10 years in elementary and these "games" seem to be great simulations of labs for the students.

5 Easy to adapt
I am currently teaching 7th grade science. I have 1 advanced class, 2 regular classes, an ESE supported class, and and ELL sheltered class. This book offers amazing activities that can be used at a variety of levels to meet the needs of all of my students. Thanks for the great resource!!

5 Worth the time......
This Science Object is a longer one but it was worth the time. It was very informative.

5 Math
I just love it when my students say "This is science not math...........". This Science Object shows how math is utilized in science.
