I used this as a lab, but its more like an activity. It's great to get students out of their seat and walk to record their distance. It's fun and engaging. All you need are meter sticks and open space.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught Living Environment, Anatomy, Forensic Science, Marine Biology, Chemistry, Physics, 7th grade General Science, Science research and parts of Earth Science. I am well rounded in Science and Math. As of summer 2018, have 8 years of teaching experience. I also have been tutoring for about 9 years. It is hard to keep up with uploading new resources at my current state because the teaching profession is so demanding. However, with more classroom experience I have some great resources planned to come out in the future.

MY TEACHING STYLE

A typical lesson: 5min do now engagement, powerpoint with guided notes for about 15 min while students ask questions or share their experiences related to the topic, students do practice questions while I circulate around the room helping, then review, then a final question or statement summarizing the lesson. I incorporate many types of teaching styles in different parts of lessons. I observe what other teachers do well and try to practice it for myself.
