Over the past couple of months I have been interacting with many teachers who are asking about makerspaces. Educators, administrators, students, and parents are hearing the terms ‘makerspace’ and ‘makers’ more and more and wondering exactly what that means as well as how it impacts the learning envi...

Since I am so inspired by space and love learning and following our progress exploring the last frontier, I wanted to write a quick post to acknowledge an incredible milestone in space travel.

In third grade, the students learn the difference between physical features and human-made features. Learning begins with just looking at a set of pictures and discussing what they notice and what the images might have in common.

Please note, this is a follow on from the previous post Disappearing Water. The second day of this experiment is great! The students are so excited and are begging to get answers.

This post goes along with the previous post Learning About Forces and Motion with Ramps. Rosanna and I thought it would be neat to integrate technology into the lesson about motion just to get the kids thinking about it. I came up with the idea to create a sort of 'radar gun' that the students could...

I always look forward to the beginning of the school year and laying the foundation for science for the rest of the year. One of the first science topics in the 3rd grade curriculum is for students to learn about forces and motion. We study the basics about pushing and pulling forces and how those f...
