As an elementary resource teacher that works with students in reading, math, and writing, I very very rarely work with science. However, after working with the activities yesterday, I may begin to add a science unit with the students that corresponds to what they are learning in the classroom. I think that the students get lost in the regular classroom with the concepts of science and the terms used and adding activities in the resource room such as the bell jar to show how the lungs and diaphram work, or the egg drop to help them with observation, and predicting will begin to give them background knowledge that they can apply to science in the classroom. Yesterday's activities could be used to apply the content standard of students understanding and applying the skills used in scientific inquiry. They are able to begin to understand and apply the processes and skills of investigation and then anlyze and interpret information from scientific information.
