Looking for a way to get each class off to a great start? Try a Science Starter! Go to http://sciencespot.net/Pages/starters.html to access the main page.
Science Starters are PowerPoint files set up to use as warm-ups for your classes. They are available on an assortment of topics. Some are used to review past topics, while others reinforce knowledge from recent lessons. I also use some to build interest in new topics or access the level of background knowledge my students have when we start a new unit.
I will be uploading new starters over the next year as they are created. Do you have files to share? E-mail them to me and I'll upload them to the website for everyone to access.
