Earth Science Lessons and Resources

I know planning can be a challenge and can take up more of your nights and weekends than you would like. In hopes of helping in that process, I want to share with you which units and resources I have planned for each week of the school year. I have an entire year lined out with detailed lesson plans for 5th grade science. I will be linking to those posts as well as new ideas and resources.

This year I want to include teachers from Kindergarten to 5th grade. Many of the resources I have will work with older grades as well. Some of my ideas and activities come from the time I spent teaching middle school science.

Here are some lesson resources for you:
