Why is electricity so dangerous? Because it doesn't know how to conduct itself properly!
My kids love jokes, and science jokes are the best! Helping them understand science will help them open their eyes to all the beauty of the world around them, as well as a world of nerdy humor.
My bilingual third grade students are a precocious, bright group of kids who enjoy learning about science, engineering, and the world around them.
Through science I incorporate reading, writing, and mathematics, and the kids love learning about why things are the way they are. Photosynthesis? Fascinating! Global warming? Devastating! Everything we study is a bridge to new levels of understanding and critical thinking.
The Next Generation Science Standards are built so as to help kids see that science should be a natural, organic part of their education. It strives to make kids aware that scientific thoughts are critical to many careers, as well as to daily life. These books will allow me to give my students access to real-world applications of the new science concepts we will be learning about and help them achieve proficiency in the new science performance expectations.
This project allows my socioeconomically disadvantaged, second-language learners to gain not only scientific knowledge, but also English language, vocabulary, reading and writing skills, as well as a more thorough understanding of the world around them.
By making lessons which revolve around their interests, and engages them, I hope to make them love not only science, but learning itself. Using their natural curiosity, I want to infect them with my own love of science, reason, and learning.
