If you're anything like me, the beginning of the year is an exciting but hectic time. To make things a little easier, I just finished creating my back to school science unit. I like to spend time with my students discussing what science is, what scientists do and how we can be safe during science investigations. This mini unit has six detailed lesson plans that you can try out in your classroom, including a hands on investigation to get the year started off.
