I do not feel like teachers should be giving students more homework. Teachers that give more homework are taking away the child's free time, which isn't fair. Homework is meant to reinforce what was learned in class. One assignment per subject is more than enough.

I feel like any time you can incorporate a holiday or event into a lesson plan, the students are going to have fun with it. Especially with the younger grades. I plan to try and use this strategy when writing my lesson plans in the future.

I think when it comes technology in the classroom, it can be a HUGE help. But when it comes to science I feel it is better to do hands on activities. Using an iPad doesn't allow the students to get there hands dirty and actually do something with science.

5 Loved it!
This scipack gives so much information on coral reefs I really enjoyed reading through it. While I have not taken the post test, I still feel like I learned a lot by reading through this. I would recommended this for anyone who is interested in learning more about coral.

I really enjoyed this scipack. I gained a lot of good information from it. I was able to pass the post test on my second try so I feel like I learned a lot. I do feel like it gives you a of information, which can be good, but can also be overwhelming. It may be better to split this scipack up into a couple of different scipacks in order to be able to master one topic at a time instead of several.
