Great resource for teaching weather maps
This is a great resource for teaching weather maps. It gives the student a good background on weather maps and very clear examples of the symbols that are used. The only drawback was with the download of this chapter is it doesn't have answers to the questions on page 189. Not a big deal, but it would be nice to have them.

This lesson would be a great intro to a science unit. It is always awesome to make the students feel like scientists. I loved the layout of this, but I also wondered how it would be to give small groups each of the books listed, and have them present to the class. Just a thought! Great intro to scientists

I can't believe what a fantastic idea "Box Up Your Habitat" is! I have had people help me collect soil from all over the US, but this takes it to a whole new level! The best thing about this idea is that it covers all areas of my 4th grade curriculum. We could use the project for writing, science, social studies and even math. I can't wait to do this with my class this year!
