Let's Talk Science

Mystery Science
Are you looking to spice up your science lessons? I would recommend trying out MYSTERY SCIENCE! About midway through the year, my team and I began using this AMAZING science website, and it has changed our teaching forever!

We were fortunate enough to earn a free trial this year, and we are planning to resubscribe next year. The website has pre-made units that are aligned to the Next Generation Science standards. The units include different "mysteries" that students work though. They are designed for students to learn concepts through the project based learning model. We have completed one unit on rocks and minerals, and we are currently in the middle of the energy unit. I have seen so much growth in my student's thinking since using these lessons because they promote critical thinking and problem solving.

Last week my kiddos built roller coasters and had an absolute blast!

What do you use as your science program?
