If you are looking for real world text and examples to include in your Science instruction, I invite you to check these articles out.
Connecting current events to real world science is meaningful for students. Strategies for using articles like this include:
1. Tweet the article with a class hash tag so students can start to follow your twitter account and have access to meaningful, real, and relevant content.
2. Ask students to write a one minute reflection based on reading a quick article. OR use these articles to introduce concepts. (The mega earthqauke will help the idea of plate tectonics seem important. The idea of a hidden eco system and introduce the theory of evolution.
How can you use these articles? and what are you reading that can be shared with our group?
