My lesson was featured on the TED Ed blog!  The challenge they presented to us was: Flip a lesson relating to the Renaissance.  I'm a science teacher, so I did Galileo.

here's the link to my actual lesson:

and here's the link to the blog post:

The past few challenges have been really fun.  We've featured math, science, and social studies videos to flip, but this week, we have a theme: The Renaissance.   Check out what a few teachers have...

Strip Designer is a terrific app!
Today's app definitely has an artistic side. Art materials feature largely in our home. My kids have watercolor easels, their own sketchbooks, pencil boxes and they are very particular about their pencil sharpeners. You have to know your pencil sharpeners to have a favorite.

Harvesting our country's natural resources and being ecologically responsible are not mutually exclusive activities!  How about this for a lively classroom debate, +Wendy Musk ?
I recently received a comment (that I did not post on my blog) about my recent post that was entitled "Teaching Earth Science and Hydraulic Fracturing". The comment read "Do you teach your students to look at both sides of an issue?" and provided a link to a rebuttal "movie" to the Gasland film.

Perfect timing, +Rebecca Kaplan !    This is the topic of one of our Eighth years' Research Fair projects and debating is still the currency of the realm at Fraser Woods Montessori.  Thanks for thinking of us!

What's a kilogram?  After you watch the video, click "THINK" to take the quiz or click "Dig Deeper" for more activities and links...
How did humans come up with the standard measurements? Is there one REAL kilogram in the world and all the rest are merely copies? This round object--worth millions and millions of dollars--introduces us to those answers.

Whoa.  800,000 people saw this!  Is Higgs a hero or a villain?  Find out!
Is the Higgs Boson responsible for the mass of things? If it's not, then what IS? I don't think you can actually classify Higgs as a hero or a villain, but it sounded really cool to me.

Story

Chief Science Education Game Changer
Introduction
I'm a mom, science teacher and blogger (in that order). Although I've been teaching for a lot longer than I've been a mom (13 years teaching), those little ones kind of take over once they get here, don't they--to my great joy!  I think being a mom has helped me to be a better teacher and it DEFINITELY helped me to become a better blogger--STL is my second blog--the first one was one to share pictures of the kids with my family and friends.
Bragging rights
I've been teaching and LOVING it for fifteen years!
