*2nd grade units: soils, health, magnets, balance and weighing. Added health nit for state standards. 3rd grade units: sond, rocks and minerals, animal studies, chemcicl test, health unit. Great to have students demonstrate lessons (balancing and weighing, chemical tests)! Great job!
*It was great to see the students doing some of the experiments. Proof that science needs to be hands-on! Students learn by doing.
*Loved the powerpoint/keynote. Great hands-on things. Yeah – tomatoes are fruits – Amen!. Nice magnet activity. I like how the students participated in our presentation. Grat “unknown” idea. Looked good! We love science!
*They did a very good job on their keynote. Sophie and Katie’s demo was a good idea. Wow! Great job!
*Organization. Well-thought out. Use of students effective.
*Great keynote. Pretty pictures. Good use of live models.
*seeing the students complete an experiments
*Loved the demonstration with the kids.
The inflections of the students. It sounds like the series used is very effective for the students – sounds like fun!
*Having students come in and do a demonstration. Fun for them and fun for us. Glad to see all the neat things you do for science! Hands-on activities are so fun for kids.
*Having students here to help with the presentation is an excellent ide! Great idea to have student’s feedback put into the slideshow. Good lab safety using the goggles!
*I wish we could have seen the finished project when the girls finished their experiments.
*It would have been nice to see what the students were doing.
*A new series is needed – we need to increase content knowledge. We still need to find time for the hands-on activities. State assessment rules all.
*I like the pictures on your powerpoint – would’ve loved to see them bigger – easier to see what the kids were doing.
*Feel free to do additional units besides those in the kits. Find a topic you enjoy that can be elated to the standards. That will help you “cover” more topics and teaching wht you’re interested in helps planning go quick.
Red cabbage juice can be made with purple cabbage, steeped in boiling water until the color drains from the leaves. You can use the colored water as an acid-base indicator. You can Google how to do this, although there may be a difference in the color of cabbage juice you need.
*The chemical experiment was hard to observe since we couldn’t see what was happening in the girls’ tray.
