    If you’re new to education or maybe just to teaching science, and you’re feeling a little lost or overwhelmed, then this bundle is for you! I’ve compiled everything you’ll need to get through at least the first week of school successfully!

    Classroom Management

    Everyone knows you can’t start the year without a solid foundation classroom management and classroom procedures. I’ve included this Policies and Procedures presentation, which includes lots of teacher tips to make sure you’re covered on that front!

    10 years into my career, I still use this presentation every single day to review and practice procedures.

    Team Building

    Break the ice and get to know your students with some hands on activities that connect to the curriculum!

    • Tower Building Engineering Activity - Students design and build towers out of spaghetti noodles and marshmallows or aluminum foil. They examine how the Engineering Design Process is used throughout the process.
    • Dog, Goose, and Bag of Corn Activity - A hands on problem solving activity where students look at how the scientific method is applicable for solving any kind of problem, not just science!
    • Whale Band-Aid Activity - Applying the scientific method, students work as a team to find a way to flip over a small bedsheet or large piece of fabric while the whole team stands on it.


    I love to start the year with a fun investigation into what exactly scientists are! This student practice will be sure to get your students talking and engaged with the curriculum:

    • What is a Scientist? - designed to show students that anyone can be a scientist! Students will reflect on what scientific qualities they already have and can develop.

    Next, use these interactive Google Slides presentations to build a strong foundation in the discipline of science. These presentations are designed with tons of opportunities for student interaction and feedback to make sure that you don’t end up standing in the front of the room talking until your throat is sore.

    Who are these resources for?

    These resources can be used by classroom teachers, tutors, and parents of students in grades 6-9. They comprehensively cover the topics mentioned, and provide a variety of practice opportunities to suit learners of all different levels and learning styles. 

    They are ideal for teachers who teach in person.. Digital versions are included with all resources to make lesson planning a breeze! 

    What's Included?

    Most of the resources in this bundle will be downloaded as a PDF file in color. If a digital file is connected to that resource, as it is in most cases, you will find the link in a large font on page 2 of the PDF. For resources that are printer friendly, the remaining pages of the PDF can be printed and copied. All relevant resources include an answer key at the end of the file. 

    I do not use zip files, instead I package my resources in PDFs as a single document from start to finish. Make sure to scroll through the entire resource if you’re looking for an answer key or alternate version!

    Please take a look at the individual product preview files to see more of the resources included in this bundle.
