We all learn from experience, which is why science labs are particularly effective in teaching the interdependencies of our environment. Activities can generate the spark needed to move students beyond the book and into the field to become enlightened stewards of their own environment.
That’s what Science Scene is all about. Science Scene is a downloadable magazine and a community Facebook page where science educators can obtain ideas and share methods that can help keep learning fun and exciting.
Compiled and hosted by Forestry Suppliers’ Education Specialist Debbie Raddin, Science Scene is available as a free download for iPad, Android, and Amazon Kindle tablets.
Each issue features relevant environmental topics, and is presented in a format that expresses a strong scientific method, interwoven with STEM and Next Generation Science Standards foundations.
Between issues, Science Scene hosts a dedicated Facebook page, inviting you to share your ideas and experiences about the things that work well for you in your classroom.
