Many of my students are ESL or other minority. I have a lot of SPED students this year. Many of these students feel they are not smart, especially in science. They struggle with standardized tests. I love doing labs and hands-on activities and seeing the lights go on for these kids. They do very well with creative activities and have positive attitudes about trying things. When we go outside to check on the stream near school, the kids dig right in and search for macro-invertebrates, despite the fact these are bugs and they live in the slimiest of places. The kids enjoy hiking and observing and doing tests on their environment. This make sense to them and they are able to write about this and verbally describe. Many have joined the Environmental Club and plan to be "teachers" for several family science nights at the nearby elementary schools. Our school is a suburban school but we have approx. 30% of our population on free and reduced lunches.
