DinoDiane’s ‘Edventures’ bring fun, interactive excitement to your teaching of the Nature of Science.
A treasure chest full of ‘hands-on discovery’ activities. Students genuinely look forward to your class every day.
Students explore the many ‘Processes of Science’ along with the ‘Scientific Method’ in this extensive four week unit. It is a great way to start off the school year with the discovery of ‘What is Science?’ and ‘Why Science?’ is important in their lives. Great for review throughout the year too! Awesome for Science Centers!
This interactive series launches into the processes of; observing, questioning, experimenting, classifying, analyzing, graphing, and more. Everything from mysterious space specimens, imploding cans and seashells to flying paper airplanes, Sherlock Holmes, and Indiana Jones, students are engaged in the processes and inquiry of science.
Created by an award-winning Master Science Teacher, recipient of the Silver Apple Award and SRP Teacher of the Year Award, the series offers an investigative approach, so that students can experience and learn scientific principles for themselves. Utilizing critical, creative and reflective thinking skills activities, along with interactive, cooperative learning strategies, students take real ownership of their learning.
Complete with easy-to-follow lesson plans detailing step-by-step procedures for every minute of the period for middle and high school science. Lessons even include ‘teacher talk’, so, you can relax and enjoy connecting with your students in a meaningful and rewarding way. Perfect for homeschoolers too!
Every lesson offers ‘Bell Work’ for the first 5 minutes of class, ‘Vocabulary’ that meets the core standards, ‘Interactive Teacher Mini-lessons’, ‘Student Work Activities’, ‘Closure’ and ‘Reflect Time’ for the last 10 minutes of class. Everything you need to submit to your administrators!
