I agree with the post to set it up as three different blocks of time. You might try doing a brain break between each session. http://brainbreaks.blogspot.com/ This site has some great ones.

I think it would be hard to come up with the hands-on every single day as well. You might try some interactive reading strategies and by using that will allow the students to work together and learn content. By this I mean, some CRISS strategies. I also saw a really good video on Reading Rockets that uses a jigsaw method for reading material. The video shows elementary students, but the same principal works with older kids too. I know a middle school in my district where the science teachers have used this and it has improved their test scores as well. Here is the link for it.

Hope this helps.
