Researching and Writing about Insects


We have been working on researching all year!  Each student got an insect and then had to take notes as they did their research.  Once their notes were complete, they moved on to writing information about their insect.  Students also colored and created a background and a clay model of their insect.  They look so eye-catching and colorful!


We used Crayola Model Magic for the clay models.  This clay is very easy to use and color. 

You can do this same idea with a lot of different informational topics!

Mining Chocolate Chip Cookies

We are studying about the different energy sources in science.  While we were learning about coal, we decided to try our hands at mining!  The soft cookies represent the surface mining and the hard cookies represent the underground mining.  Students just need one of each type of cookie and a toothpick.



Students quickly realized that mining is tougher than it looks!  It was really hard to get whole chips out of that hard cookie.

Boston Tea Party Labs

We are working on the Revolutionary War in Social Studies and the kids had a blast working on these science labs!


Kids can test 2 different questions with these labs.  They only need tea bags, cups, salt, and water!

Grab your FREE labs here!

We then moved on to the STEM Challenge for the Boston Tea Party.  With very limited supplies, kids had to make a crate to hold a tea bag that will stay dry for the longest period of time.
