This little checklist includes some of the most important beginning of the school year tasks for secondary science teachers
. Each task is listed in the order in which I like to do them, and I hope it works for you, too.
Nothing feels better than checking something off your “To Do” list, and that’s why I included a little box next to each item so you can check it off as you go.
So, if you find yourself standing in the middle of your classroom wondering where to begin, just start at the top of the list and work your way down.
Here are a few other FREEBIES you might like for Back-to-School:
Break the Ice CUBE Game
is a perfectly fun way for students to get to know each other in the first few days of school.
Bathroom Passes for Secondary Students
: a simple but effective classroom management tool. Instructions included!
Phobias Vocabulary Game
is an excellent tool to introduce the idea that big scary science words are not too bad if you break them down into their parts.
”Jungles” Video Questions
from the BBC Planet Earth II Series makes a great emergency sub plan if you already own the video.
Have a great school year!
