Botzum, Krystalyn; Sparks, Kelly; Smothers, Moriah – Science and Children, 2019
While curriculum designed as project-based learning is not suitable for use with every science standard, this methodology can be used when teaching concepts that naturally contain some flexibility. With small adaptations, teachers can implement these practices into the classroom regardless of the grade level. This article provides a detailed…

Brickwedde, James – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018
This article examines the importance of developing the notion of place value as a rate of ten. In exploring how to nurture this concept, the author looks at the role of the language of value, the problem types of multistep multiplication and addition along with measurement division, each with ten as an organizing unit, as well as strategically…

Gunning, Amanda M.; Marrero, Meghan E.; Buonamano, Christina; Somers, Vita – Science and Children, 2018
Waves and sound are rooted in children's everyday experiences. This topic naturally extends to other topics, such as instruments and music, which children find very interesting. As children often see science as separate from their daily lives, it is important to help them make real-life connections. The unit begins with children's observations,…

Adams, Krista; Feagin, Shannon – Science and Children, 2017
This article presents a lesson that was designed to explore the scientific descriptions of matter through both the intensive and extensive properties that students successfully added to their vocabulary. Students' examples demonstrated that there were places where their reasoning about matter faltered as related to how the material is the same…

Thorn, Courtney; Rye, James; Walls, Holly – Science and Children, 2017
Photography is a creative art that continues to advance through technological innovations. Smart phones have made photography a nearly daily occurance, and people have become quite accustomed to zooming in and taking photos. This article explains how elementary teachers can harness a much "bigger" technology application--GigaPan--to help…

Bates, Meg S.; Moran, Cheryl G.; Phalen, Lena – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Teachers face many challenges helping students meet the expectations set forth in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010). CCSSM content standards not only introduce new concepts at each grade level but also require teachers to learn new terminology for old concepts and consider how students' understanding of concepts…

Murata, Aki; Stewart, Chana – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Effective use of mathematical representation is key to supporting student learning. In "Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All" (NCTM 2014), "use and connect mathematical representations" is one of the effective Mathematics Teaching Practices. By using different representations, students examine concepts…

Fulco, Charles – Science and Children, 2017
The Great American Total Solar Eclipse (TSE2017) will occur on August 21 this year--the first total solar eclipse in the continental United States since 1979. For many reasons, this is a scientific and educational milestone event of the highest magnitude that should not be missed by any teacher and student whether or not their school is in session…
