Summer is almost over.  Please share any activities you did over the summer with kids or families that would be great to use during the year.  All outdoor learning activities are great!  Environmental education activities you have to share would be appreciated.  I have a set of 15 lessons that are easy to teach, little prep and science outdoor fun.  I appreciate any feedback.  Thanks and enjoy.

Fun rock cycle activity that I found.  I've used this before with the water cycle, and kids love it! http://www.cascience.org/csta/pdf/conferencehandouts/SherriffRide.pdf

Interested in teaching about worms?  I've joined with 2 other homeschooling (kindergarten) bloggers to bring you Worm Wednesday posts about the science of worms.   The link below will be updated with each week's link.  On our final post before Thanksgiving, we will have a printable document with an outline of all the lesson ideas you might want to try!

Here's our first post..and the second post is already linked up under Worm Physical Features.

Hi, everyone!  I'm a second grade teacher in Tennessee.  I am new to We Teach and new to blogging!  I'm just getting started but am looking forward to sharing with everyone.  Please check out my blog for free resources on teaching the Water Cycle.  :)

You could do a feely box for textures, have them put their hand into a box and guess the texture or item.


Work on identifying objects using their senses.

Starting a unit on properties of matter... colors, size, shape, texture, etc.  (not solid, liquid, gas)  Need some fun interactive ideas.  This is new to us (only since last year).  I feel liek it could be alot of fun, but I just cant wrap my brain around it.
