I am a Life Skills Teacher and my student’s skills vary from those who need hand-over-hand assistance to those who can independent read and write. This is why I created this science unit. Plans for other units include plants, my senses, and energy.
One of my favorite subjects to teach is science! My students love hands-on experiements and observations. My students document all their work in their Science Journal. Documentation can include their own art work, writing, photographs, coloring, etc. I like to include pictures of my students performing an experiment or observation. My students like to look at their pictures and the parents enjoy brousing thru the journals with their children.
For each page, I have included a “suggested directions”. These are ideas that I have used in my classroom successfully. Also are suggestions to supplement with on-line resources and books from your class or school library.
