      Dan Adler, a 6th grade science teacher in Lawrence, MA, regularly uses songs with physical movements to help his students remember challenging concepts. In this video, students demonstrate “Bodak Particles,” a song about phase change sung to an instrumental version of Cardi B’s song “Bodak Yellow.” (Get a copy of the lyrics here.). Inspire your students with thousands of free teaching resources including videos, lesson plans, and games aligned to state and national standards.

    Encourage curious young minds to explore the world above and below us with these Earth and space science lesson plans. The hands-on activities include building layers of the Earth using play dough, painting and labeling different types of rocks, exploring constellations, creating their own constellations, and learning about the water cycle, landforms, the solar system, and other . Science Diagrams from Science A-Z provide colorful, full-page models of important, sometimes complex science concepts. Science Diagrams, available in both printable and projectable formats, serve as instructional tools that help students read and interpret visual devices, an important skill in STEM fields.

    Want to facilitate learning beyond the traditional textbook format? With 's interactive science lesson plans for different grade levels, teachers and parents can use these lesson plans to have students look forward to learning about the color spectrum and solar system, as well as more generally, chemistry and physics, with their peers everyday. Underpinning science education reform movements in the last 20 years—at all levels and within all disciplines—is an explicit shift in the goals of science teaching from students simply creating a knowledge base of scientific facts to students developing deeper understandings of major concepts within a scientific discipline.
