Freebie Friday

The Scientific Method


A short time ago, I had the opportunity to attend a Professional Development training, for pay during the summer,  on Microsoft Power Point and Excel.  Although I have used both of these programs for years, I wanted to check-in to see if there was something that I could use to help make my presentations  a little "bigger" and a little "better".    After all, we as educators are ALWAYS searching for ways to improve our “game” and we love learning.  
We are nothing less than addicted to it.

The focus of the Power Point session was to create a "nonlinear" presentation.  One that puts the students in charge of learning and gives them the freedom to explore and engage at their own pace and pleasure.  I created this Scientific Method presentation to do just that. This may be used as a computer activity or a whole group presentation.  Click the picture below if you would like to use it, enjoy.  

The Scientific Method project is listed for free on 
Teachers Pay Teachers. 

 Click here if you would like to use it and I hope it is helpful to you and your up and coming Scientists.

Science Foldables with Standards

I have accumulated a group of great resources from "Pinterest" that would be great to use as part of the upper level Science class.  In my experience, it is very important to include a visual of every standard that is covered and I am so excited that I was able to find them.  I also linked each picture with the original author so that you can visit their blogs and check out all of the other great ideas that each one has to offer.

Water Cycle

Weather Unit - SE5C74 - Distinguish among the various forms of precipitation (rain, snow, sleet, and hail), making connections to the weather in a particular place and time.
Body Systems

Body Systems from Teaching in Room 6


I know, I know, this is not a foldable but this covers soil erosion so well.  I figured we could actually do this experiment and then have them draw it in their journal. 
Be sure to scroll down to the language TRANSLATOR below the right column.  :-)         
Simple Machines
    Graphic Organizer - Oh, Yeah                           

Solar Systems

Solar System
SC5E5 - Humans continue to explore Earth's place in space. Gravity and energy influence the formation of galaxies, including our own Milky Way Galaxy, stars, the Solar System, and Earth. Humankind's need to explore continues to lead to the development of knowledge and understanding of our Solar System.




Describe and investigate the process of photosynthesis, such as the roles of light, carbon dioxide, water and chlorophyll; production of food; release of oxygen.
