In the central Indiana area, we have lots of field trip options available to us. We visit the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, The STEM Connection, & NIFS.
What are some your favorite science field trips? Please list the county, city, cost, and your experiences!
With my Kindergarten students, I love to introduce them to student notebooks a few weeks into the school year and we begin using them right away! One of the very first labs that I have them do is to drop M&M's into cups of water and observe what happens. You can watch this lesson by clicking above.
What are some of your favorite beginning of year or first lessons?
