Wow! So many of us wish we had more time. But I can see your point if you're lacking materials it could be tricky. But students learn best by doing so start by restructuring your day.

One example could be :
whole class intro
hands on experiences-activities, experiments whenever possible
interactive notebooks

Google the topics/objectives you are teaching and you can find some simple to do things even though you have no official lab.
In the old days when we had no sinks in our rooms, we'd improvise with jugs of water, plastic tubs when needed.

I still often have to bring in sand or soil when doing experiments so don't let that kind of thing deter you!

Set up rotations too if you can-students respond to the movement.
