You don't neccessarily have to take your students on a field trip. They could go on a nature walk with you around the school if you want to teach a lesson about life science. But here are some special places I think you could take the students for field trips: 1. An Aquarium (To teach about marine biology) 2. A Botanical Garden (To teach about flowers and other plants) 3. A Farm (To s...

Going to the nature preserve on our college campus and observing all of the natural wildlife would have to be mine. Such an enlightening experience!

5 Jesse B. - Review: Great Job!
This is a comprehensive collection of resources that provides invaluable information about plants. It containts vital learning material about the plant cycle, plant parts, and plant reproduction. It even contains a valuable lesson about pollution and how plants are suffering from it. In short, this collection is a treaure trove for teachers who want to teach students about plants. It is full of useful information, lesson ideas, and even explores student perception of the subject material in a fascinating way. Great job!

5 Jesse B. -Review
The purpose of the article is to explain and explore inquiry based instruction in science. It describes inquiry intruction as an active learning process whereby students ask questions, examine data, and engage in critical thinking. In other words, inquiry instruction is when the students apply the principals of the scientific method to their learning activities. This is why data analysis and critical thinking skills are so heavily emphasized throughout the article. Without constant research and skepticism towards data collection and results, science is impossible. The rest of the article goes on to explore different levels of inquiry instruction and how some science lessons might not involve much inquiry at all.

5 Would I Survive in this Type of Habitat? Review
A very informative collection about nature and how various creatures evolved and developed certain traits in order to adapt to specific environments. It also describes in great detail how animals rely on one another for the resources they need to survive and successfully propagate, so failure to adapt by one species can lead to failure for others. The most fascinating thing I learned from this collection is how harmful certain influences and/or changes in an environment can be. Even the most minor disruptions to the natural equilibrium of a habitat can have devastating effects that are far-reaching in scope.
