“Cool! … Whoa! … Awesome!”
If you haven’t heard these exclamations from your science students in a while, perhaps it might be time to find fresh inspiration. We’re loving Ward’s World, a new online destination from Ward’s Science for middle school and high school teachers that offers high-quality, free science activities for the classroom. You’ll also find how-to videos, tips, tricks, and resources to share. Teaching science just got easier—and more fun!
The site is organized by topic and thus very easy to navigate. Quickly find classroom resources for biology, chemistry, physics, or geology and Earth science.
We love all of their free science activities. Just check out The Fantastic Floating Foam Reaction, a chemistry lesson where students combine two viscous liquids to create a rapidly expanding foam that hardens into a solid form.
And how fun do these lessons sound?
- The Periodic Table of Candy: a Chemistry Lesson Plan
- I’m Just Here for the Popcorn : a Heat Transfer Lesson Plan
- The Sweet Smell of Success : a Lesson Plan on Esters and Organic Synthesis.
Each activity guide includes everything you need to get started, including time requirements, key concepts, materials, safety tips, procedures, assessments, and teacher tips. Plus, at the end of each activity, you and your students are directed to more related content. Ward’s World not only helps your students learn important science concepts, but it also makes science exciting and fun.
