How Do Arctic Animals Stay Warm in Icy Water

How Arctic Animals Stay Warm in Icy Water

Ever wondered how arctic animals stay warm in icy water? This fun science experiment shows how a layer of fat makes a huge difference in body temperature!

A good way to compare and contrast animals and plants is to use a hula hoop Venn diagram. This can be put on the bulletin board and can be hung up for an extended period of time and is easy to see.

Liquids, Solids and An Oil Spill Activity!

My second graders did this awesome activity for liquids and solids! Now bear with me, I'm about to ramble for a minute... Read on to find out what we did! We have been learning about liquids and solids and we wanted to learn more about how the way we use different liquids and solids can have an impact on our environment. Previously we had been mixing various liquids and solids together to see what types of reactions we could get. In fact the very first activity I did was just put out a…

When first teaching about animal adaptations, have the students brainstorm what different animals do to survive, then put them all on the board and discuss why animals have to adapt.

Animal Adaptations & Moby Max Give Away

Thank you Mr. Keating!!!! Our fifth grade classes got to spend some time this week with our seventh grade life science teacher, Mr. Keating. The students loved visiting his lab and learning about adaptations of birds and other animals. He shared his life experiences and expertise in his field. The "hands-on" workshop allowed my students to see how beaks and other bird parts allow for survival. He also shared other adaptations. The children enjoyed his collection of live animals. I want to be…

Social Studies Triarama

I love teaching social studies! I think it is an interesting and fun subject! I do hear from many of my pre-service teachers that they previously believed that social studies was usually boring and dry. It is my great pleasure to show them that there are many ways to engage students in the learning process. The key to engaging students in a content heavy subject like social studies is to have different ways to provide input and different ways to provide output. Today I am going to talk about…

I've seen this before, but love the way this is presented!  I could put it on the ActivBoard to explain before beginning the activity!

Life cycles are one of the great science concepts taught somewhere in every school's science curriculum. In my school, we look at the life cycles of plants and crayfish in my third grade class, while other grades study the life cycles of chickens, butterflies, and fish.

This is a great mentor text for symbiosis, but it can also be used for cause and effect, compare/contrast, and main idea.

Must Read Mentor Texts

Hello Everyone! Today I am linking up with Amanda and Stacia from Collaboration Cuties for Must Read Mentor Texts. This week's topic is science. The book I would like to share is called Weird Friends. This is a great book for illustrating the concept of symbiosis. It shows unlikely pairs of animals helping each other. Here is an example of how a Portuguese man-of-war protects mackerels by stinging their predators. The man-of-war is fed because the mackerels attract food. The mackerels'…

Animal Adaptations

Featured Above: 1. A Second Grade Adventure set up a variety of stations where kids tried on different items that gave them an insight into how animals adapt, including some interesting gloves and side vision using toilet paper rolls! 2. Flower Garden has a fun lesson to demonstrate octopus adaptation, using slime and a funnel, to show how octopi can squeeze through super tiny cracks! 3. Ashleigh's Education Journey had kids use a variety of tools and instruments that represented different…
