Clip to ScrapBook #6

My first three years as a Science teacher were in a classroom with no lab equipment or supplies with slanted top desks. I concentrated on vocabulary, used BrainPop videos and hands-on activities. Quite often the activities were very simple and used household items but it kept the kids interested. Chances are the Principal doesn't know enough to know what (if any) relation the activity has to the content so just let the kids explore. I have fewer discipline issues than other teachers because my classes get to work together, try new things, move around, etc.
