Ecological Pyramids

I am very grateful for the opportunity of having a student teacher.  I can honestly say she is teaching me as much as I am teaching her.  This is the foldable she created for teaching biological pyramids.  It includes, energy, numbers, and biomass.

Updated: The A-B-Cs of Science

It was brought to my attention that my end of year vocabulary photo albums weren't very easy to find.  In fact, I couldn't even find the file.  I'm not sure if it had been deleted or if it was an error on my end.  But!....I created a new version and I have it posted on Teacher's Notebook for free of course!

Here is the direct link to this item:  The A-B-Cs of Science

Vladimir the Science Reindeer!

Introducing.....


Vladimir will be visiting our classroom tomorrow and will be bringing with him some super fun challenges!  

Vladimir the Science Reindeer has dropped in to visit this season.
He brings with him some quests for us and each challenge has a
special reason.
Vladi is from the cold North Pole where he assists that red-suited man.
He needs our help to problem solve and for us to do all we can!
Accept these challenges as a team and join in the competition.
Do your best and learn a lot as you enjoy this new tradition!

Learning About the Periodic Table

Our lesson topic this week was on the families of the periodic table.  My students were given "Periodic Parts" and had to place them together to best represent the periodic table.  They were instructed to color each family a different color or pattern.  Students also had to label the number of valence electrons each family/group has and the number of energy levels for each period.  Specific information was recorded for Alkali Metals, Alkaline Earth Metals, the Halogens, and the Noble Gases.
