a couple science favorites

These two items have really enhanced my classroom science instruction and the classroom science station:

A simple reminder that scientists' drawings should be ABCD.

Instead of a science word wall, make a science OBJECT wall. At the beginning of each unit, I select 5 target vocab words - must be concrete and meaningful! Then, we start the unit with a mini-lesson in which we create the object wall as a class and share where we've seen these objects before, what we observe about them, what we think they might be used for, etc.
I love my kinder scientists!
