I am excited about this project because I believe it will provide me with rich science professional development and give me an opportunity to share my passion for science with others. At our school, 5th grade follows a middle-school model and I teach a 5th grade science/writing block to 3 classes. This allows my students to spend an hour a day engaging in science! I am looking for ways to integrate science into all curriculum areas and bring engaging phenomena to my classroom. With this integration, my goal is to provide hands-on ways for other teachers to implement the NGSS into their classrooms alongside of what they are already doing.
