Good teacher resource Mar 8, 2007
I am a 4th grade teacher who is applying for my National Board Certification. For my portfolio, I'm teaching a unit on the Solar System. I needed some fresh ideas for small group lessons so I got this book. It has some really great experiments and demonstrations and gives the background on the concept explored. I specifically needed lessons that integrated mathematics and I found them here! Highly recommended!
My only regret is that it didn't have reproducibles/blackline masters. Whatever blacklines I needed from the book, I made myself on the computer and printed out.
