Make and put on the door - Teach-A-Roo: Ticket Out the Door! This can be used as an exit ticket. You could put critical thinking or math on the door. This gives the students something to do when waiting at the door.
Teach Your Child to Read - A lesson on iambic pentameter with William Shakespeare! I think you need this comic for your class (Hey! That was iambic pentameter!) - Give Your Child a Head Start, and.Pave the Way for a Bright, Successful Future.
Layers of Earth and Layers of Atmosphere plus Math Journals I like this chart. I would have students create their own to keep in their journal. I would use this as an assessment to check understanding.
Plate Boundaries- convergent, divergent, and transform practice that involves reading comprehension and application! Many students these days have a terribly difficult time comprehending nonfiction & informational text - textbooks, websites, articles etc.
Learn about rocks and minerals by using this fun scavenger hunt activity. Hide the scavenger hunt fact cards around your classroom and have your students find them, filling out their fact sheet along the way. The perfect activity for a geology lesson!
Instead of handing out a worksheet like this we could draw the template of the rock cycle on the board. Each group of students would be given a process of rock form and have to work together to tape them on the board in the right place.
