Are you a hard-working science teacher? Do you teach Earth Science or Geology including topics such as: minerals, faults, paleontology or topographic maps? Would you like to save some money? You are in luck! I am throwing a sale on my TpT store on January 7 and 8. Save jup to 25% on all of my science lessons.
Are you teaching paleontology? I have a fabulous hands-on activity on dinosaur fossils. Are you a middle-school teacher? If so, check out my junior level paleontology activity! The project begins as a collaborative activity where students assemble and identify dinosaur bones as a group. Each animal has missing bones, as is common with real dinosaur fossil finds.
But what if you teach high school Geology or Earth Science? I offer a higher-level activity on paleontology as well. The project is the exact activity that I am completing in my classroom today. It offers an opportunity for students to collaborate, think critically, be creative as well as conduct research on a specific dinosaur. How many activities offer such a variety of learning styles and engagement strategies? Join me today in presenting this science lesson to your students. The picture included in this blog is an in-progress project for one of my juniors in my high school Geology class this year.
Not teaching paleontology or geologic time right now? No problem. Check out my new mineral identification worksheet. Perhaps you would like to try a new lesson or add a supplemental resource in order to better demonstrate how to differentiate whether a mineral cleaves, fractures or is a crystal. The visualizing reference page just might produce an “a-ha” moment for your students on mineral identification. I can honestly say that it has done just that for many of my Geology students over the years.
Perhaps you are teaching earthquakes and faults at the moment. I offer a hands-on block-model activity where students construct models for normal, reverse, strike-slip faults as well as horsts and grabens. Included in this science lesson are questions for students to answer as well as answer keys for teachers. Additionally, I offer many topographic map activities for students. So, no matter which of these Earth Science and Geology subjects you are teaching in your classes now, you are sure to find a suitable activity for your middle and high-school level class. Therefore, Check out my TpT store (MidnightStar) and save money this Tuesday and Wednesday.
Whichever science activity you choose, you will be purchasing a tried and true, tested and tweaked activity that has shown to help students understand the topic being taught.
