Teachers, below you will find links to the completed units that I have for grades 1 through 4.  Feel free to use as you wish, and to contact me with any questions you may have.

 

You will find that I try to organize my units such that you do not need any uncommon supplies, and for the most part no resources.  I do this to allow these lessons to be taught by anyone, anywhere (I actually received an e-mail from a teacher in Abu Dhabi who uses the lessons).  I have also attempted to make the majority of the lessons hands on or student lead lessons.  You'll find that nearly every student will become engaged in science when they can get involved.  However, the real magic to teaching science is to show your students just how incredible science is, when you love it, they will LOVE it!  Teaching is my second career, I was formerly an engineer, and as such I have a huge passion for science.  My students feed off of this energy, and the results are amazing.  So, get your hands dirty, get on the floor with them, and show them just how awesome science truly is.

 

If you happen to find any links that do not work, or any typos on the worksheet, please to not hesitate to let me know - my students don't think twice about telling me I have made a mistake ;)

Grade 1 Science          Grade 2 Science

Grade 3 Science          Grade 4 Science

 

I have never been asked to cover grade 5 science or grade 6 science.  I do not have any resources.  If you happen to know of any sites that have some awesome stuff, feel free to let me know and I will look at it and post it here.

 

I am a grade 7 science teacher, and have my units fully planned out, however I do not have them set up as easily to share.  I have thought about figuring out how to do it, and have put it on my list of things to do... however my wife also has a long list of things for me to do, so it might be a bit before I get grade 7 up here ;)

Below you will find links to the student webpages I post throughout the year, check back in the upcoming months for updates:

               Introduction and Safety

               Ecosystems

               Pure Substances and Mixtures

               Form and Function

               Heat

 

I have taught grade 8 science twice, the first time was my first year teaching, and the second time I was piggy backing off another teacher, so needless to say, I do not have it organized nearly well enough to put here.  If you know of any grade 8 resources that you think would be beneficial to others, please send them my way and I can post them here.

 

 

The page was looking kind of blah, so I thought I would spice it up with a picture of a couple Future Nobel Prize winners

...both physics and chemistry of course ;)
