I have been a fifth grade science teacher for 14 years for Broward County Public Schools in Florida. I hold a valid 1-6 Elementary certificate and am certified to teach middle school science grades 5-9. In addition, I hold a valid National Board certificate. I have written the science curriculum for fifth grade for Broward County Florida (the sixth largest public school system in the United States) and have been a science trainer for the county. I have also published lessons for CPalms and have written science test items for the state of Florida.
Science needs to be fun! If taught correctly, students will look forward to the daily science lesson. Teachers should use a variety of learning styles when teaching science. A typical science lesson should involve a small amount of lecture or reading accompanied with a hands-on and critical thinking component.
