Science Lesson Plans For Elementary

Francis Said:

What should I do to teach reptiles in elementary school?

We Answered:

TRY BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY! HE IS GREAT FUN AND EDUCATIONAL.HE HAS LOTS OF VIDEOS TO CHOOSE FROM IF YOUR CLASS HAS MONEY FOR THEM. YOU CAN ALSO LET THEM SEE A FEW HARMLESS REPTILES BUT DON'T FORGET TO GET PERMISSION SLIPS SIGNED THAT YOU ARE BRINGING THEM INTO THE CLASS AND ONLY THOSE WITH SIGNED SLIPS CAN TOUCH THE REPTILES! AFTER THAT ONE TEACHER GOT INTO TROUBLE FOR TAKING HER STUDENTS TO THE MUSEUM AND GOT FIRED(ONE PARENT COMPLAINED-PLEASE!) FOR ALLOWING THEM TO SEE A NUDE PAINTING, YOU CANNOT BE TOO CAREFUL! YOU CAN TEACH A FEW BASIC ANATOMY PARTS AND WHY THEY HAVE THEM, TEACH HOW AND WHERE THEY LAY EGGS AND HOW THE EGGS ARE KEPT SAFE,AND TO TEACH A VARIETY OF REPTILES NAMES AND WHERE THEY CAN BE FOUND.VIDEOS,PICTURES,FACTS SHEETS,AND SHOWING A FEW LIVE REPTILES SHOULD COVER YOUR STANDARDS AND GIVE ENOUGH MATERIAL FOR A TEST AND/OR PROJECT. THEY COULD BUILD/DRAW INDIVIDUAL HABITATS FOR THEIR FAV REPTILE BUT USE EITHER TOY ONES OR CLAY MODELS IN THE HABITAT. THEY COULD WORK ON ONE REAL HABITAT IN CASE YOU WANT TO ADOPT ONE FOR THE CLASS OR TO GIVE TO A LIBRARY OR MAYBE THE PRINCIPAL! I REALLY MISS DOING THE HANDS ON TEACHING AND WORKING WITH KIDDOS SINCE I HAD TO STOP TEACHING DUE TO DISABILITIES.IF YOU EVER NEED HELP, JUST GET IN TOUCH WITH ME. I LOVE MAKING LESSON PLANS WITH CREATIVE IDEAS I WOULD FEEL LIKE I WAS CONTRIBUTING AGAIN! BEST WISHES!

Elementary Science Experiment Ideas?

We Answered:

How about getting a matchbox car and making a ramp for it (you could just use a board that they hold up)? Have the students calculate how changing the height of the ramp affects the distance the car travels. It should be pretty easy to get the supplies and to conduct.

Have anyone taken 4341 ELE ED Teaching Science in Elementary?

We Answered:

i don't go there and never took that specific class...but as an ed major you just gotta jump in feet first and once you get started everything will just flow...try to pick a common theme for everything to revolve around like the weather and that way it'll be easier to tie everything together...good luck
