About to Start Weather
In a week, my class will be moving on from the scientific method to weather. In order to activate prior knowledge (and also to ensure all my students have this background understanding), we will start by discussing the water cycle. They'll work together to create this foldable that labels, explains, and shows the water cycle. It is just a regular sheet of cardstock or copy paper folded at 2 3/4" from both ends. This brings the flaps together at the center of the page. The flaps are cut at 4…
Notebooking, Teaching, and Technology
I love this hallway display I ran across at one of our schools (to be honest it is the hair on Nina Simone). After looking at it several times I actually thought it was pretty clever. Here is a hallway display that can be left up for literally two months. It can be left up for February (which was when it was made) for Black History Month and then for March for Women's History Month. I might just change out the title of the board to keep it current. If you have friends (like I do) that…
Assessment for Learning. Spread cups on table and have students race to correctly order, smallest to biggest. Great visual way to show levels of organization. This would also work for DKPCOFGS, sorting individual body systems parts, even the sequence of mitosis and meiosis, students could make their own sets and doodle diagrams on the cups.

We are pretty much done with our earth science unit, but I just hadn't taken the time to upload these pictures. I'm not a big fan of the science experiments in the book, but thankfully Pinterest has some great ideas! :) When learning about metamorphic rock, I came across this idea from Adventures of Ms. Smith. She used Starbursts to make rock. We tried, and it worked perfectly! There were a bunch of edible ideas for sedimentary rock, but I didn't want to get my kiddos too sugared up! (After…
