I love these ideas for improving science education with differentiated instructions. It is very important as educators to keep our students motivated and excited about learning while keeping them all on the same page at the same time. This is why small groups is a wonderful attribute to have in a science class or any subject. Thank you for posting

Icebreakers are an important way to getting a student warmed up. I love the "Build a Car" activity, among the others I have found here. These are all great ideas for the students to make friends, and form a mutual trust that creates a trusting classroom environment. I have found 10 great classroom icebreakers I have attached below.

Overall, I feel I learned from this science pack.

5 Science Ticket
What a wonderful idea. I love the use of a science ticket. This helps the children transition more freely with ease through any science activity in place. Using this every time will ensure that the children will know what to do. This is a great concept into many things such as assessing students prior knowledge, giving the students the 'center stage' in speaking along with a great tool to introducing a new vocabulary. I love this idea.
