5th grade Science Classroom Set up

Hi everyone!

I am new to this site. I just signed a contract for 5th grade Science!! I'm so excited. I taught for 5 years in the primary grades and have been home for the past 4 years with my kids. I feel like a brand new teacher. A new school, new grade level, new, new , new I will be teaching 4 Science classes, plus my homeroom Writing, Social Studies and Character Education. I need ideas for classroom set up and organization of papers, multiple classes, etc.

Thanks for any advice!
:-)

I teach Science to 5th-8th graders. I have my students use a notebook for notes, a marble notebook for labs/experiments, and another marble notebook for our Science Fair. For my 5th and 6th graders I have Science kits that supply all our materials in huge plastic bins. For 7th and 8th grade I have test tubes, scales, and many household supplies in supply cabinets in my room. I have lab tables as opposed to desks so my students work with the people they sit with when doing a lab (I periodically change their seats so they have the opportunity to work with different students). I have trays labeled by grade, but you could label yours by class period, so the students know where to turn in their work, tests, etc. Good luck and enjoy!
