Science and Children’s editor shares thoughts regarding the current issue.
I was looking for lesson ideas for Elementary Life Cycles Units when I came across this editors note. The lesson idea warmed my heart. I love the idea of making this lesson long term and reflective. Any time we can get students writing and connecting personally to the content we are setting them up for success. To connect this back to life cycles that they learn at the beginning of the year, wow! Now we are really coming full circle. I would love to be a student in this class!

Usually the editor's introduction to a journal gives just an overview of what the theme is for the month, but in this quick article the editor shares a quick lesson idea. Take a picture of your students at the beginning of the year and then another at the end of the school year and have them compare the photos to see how they have changed over time.
