Great for all ages
Weather is one of the most popular topics among high school students, however, it is not usually taught. I remember in my early education spending days talking about the strange weather that had occurred the night before school, never really learning how different storms formed. This collection provides great materials for storms, tornados, and hurricanes. With the increasing number and intensity of severe storms, it is becoming more and more important to teach our students about the weather, especially with frequent weather changes in Ohio. This SciGuide was very easy to navigate and provided a large number of different and unique resources that I have not seen in previous research. Definitely an incredibly useful resource that I will reference in creating lesson plans and curriculum.

This was a great resource to find. I have always been interested in marine habitats and would love to incorporate fish tanks in my future classroom. This collection features great activities and information about food webs, ecosystems, and the overall importance of ecology. This is a great resource as well since it is important to discuss how and why coral reefs are dying based on global warming, obviously an extremely important topic in the science community.

As a student teacher, I am nervous to teach forensics in the spring. I took forensics in High School but do not remember much from it. Finding this activity was wonderful! Since this activity is student centered, it is a great way for students to have hands on experience, while still using information that was taught during a brief lecture. This is also a fun activity that can be used over several days and I can already think of multiple worksheets and adaptations for my diverse learners. This was a great activity and I am fortunate to have found it as I start to build my future curriculum
