Overall, it was very well written. The outline summary at the end of each lesson was very helpful to adapt and make sure you hit all the main points of the lesson.
These lessons worked well and gave kids a good foundation for applying these skills. The lessons gave us a common vocabulary and common strategies for doing these things.
When we learned about electricity, my kids were always going around unplugging things and talking to their families about using less electricity. They still talk about it…sometimes we work with the lights out.
Putting the solutions in students’ hands and telling them that they can have a huge impact on the world or just in their community…it makes them feel so responsible and important that they really just run with it.
Before Connect Science, I had a hard time getting students excited about science. Connect Science was able to bring lessons and resources that excited kids to learn about science.
