Teaching middle school is not for the faint of heart. But if you're called to do it, you know there's nothing else quite like it. Join us in discussing what works - and what doesn't.

Seeking Science Websites

Jennifer Krauss Editor, Funderstanding

I am seeking science education sites that focus on interactive activities, such as games and simulations. I welcome your recommendations. Thank you!

There are simulations and teaching suggestions by grades.

Any specific units?

I teach a lot of physical science (7th grade) and I can usually find some pretty good sites that are interactive, informative, or offer some ideas for activities, but nothing that offers all of that. I usually google the unit and middle school. This gives me some decent hits and I can go from there.

This past unit I was looking for a good activity for Newton's laws of motion and googling that plus middle school was pretty successful. Feel free to visit my classroom site for the links I currently have posted (under "my resources" tab and then click on a unit). Hope that helps :)

Forgot the link :)
