An activity that I found interesting to use at home for students is teaching them how to make butter in order to see how a liquid takes the shape of its container when it turns into a liquid.

Once they see how it took the shape of its container, you can ...

5 Collection Review
Sonia, I really loved the article choices you chose for your review. I could tell by your choices that your topic was the moon, the earth and how they orbit. An article that I found very helpful was the one on semantic mapping. I have found semantic mapping to be a very useful tool when teaching or even studying. I always use semantic mapping for myself and I plan on incorporating it in my classroom. Great collection :)
