I am Kayla, and I am a Texas Certified 4-8 Science and Generalist Educator. After spending years chasing my tail in the classroom, I decided to create a full year's worth of lesson plans one summer to help me relieve some of the stress and burn out that I had been experiencing during the school year. I cannot believe the impact it had! My nights and weekends opened up, and my students clearly were getting it because I could finally focus on my students and their learning.
My lessons are fun, hands-on, engaging and based on the 5E Instructional Model because I believe science is best learned through exploration!

If you are new to teaching 5th grade science or just looking for some new resources, head on over to elementaryscienceteachers.com. There, you can find my full set of TEKS aligned science lesson plans with all of the supporting resources through our All Access Pass monthly or annual membership. No commitment required! It is my hope that 5th grade science teachers will use the time saved creating lesson plans to do the most important job – fostering a love of science and inquiry in their students!
