Many districts (including mine) are requiring a sub folder with activities to do "on-the-fly" in case of an emergency absence. I always had trouble with this. Though it's a great idea, it's often hard to predict when you'll be out and what the class is studying at the time of your absences. That's why I created these sub plans that relate to science, pique student interests, and can be used at nearly any time.
