Back to School Secondary Science Giveaway

 

It’s time.

 

It’s copier hogging time.

 

It’s solution measuring time.

 

It’s microscope calibrating time, unpack-the-fetal-pigs time, and count-up-the-glassware time.

 

That’s right, it’s back to school for the science teacher.  And a bunch of us over at Teachers Pay Teachers want to make this back to school year special for you and save you a little time in the process.

 

Each of us has carefully designed materials that can save you a load of time in your classroom.  And this year for back to school, we are giving away FIVE $100 TPT Gift cards to five science teachers.

 

You can enter at the second Rafflecopter-box at the bottom of this blog post.  To enter, hop to all 18 blogs, write down the secret words each has hidden in their blog posts, and figure out the secret sentence (21 words in all).  Once you have the sentence, go to any one of the group giveaway Rafflecopter boxes, on any one of our blog pages, and type in the secret sentence in the right order.  We will pick five winners after it ends after midnight on Friday August the 11th.

 

My secret words: 1&2. “The Scientist”

 

Along with this giant group giveaway, I’m doing a separate giveaway of my own resources.  To check out my resources, check out my store here!  I’m giving away 5 $25 shopping sprees in my store.  All you have to do is enter in the Rafflecopter below and there are multiple ways to enter!

    I have your Biology Homework Year-long Bundle. I’d like to see a similar product for Anatomy & Physiology.

      Awesome! Yeah, all of these sellers are just terrific. I wouldn’t do a giveaway with them if they weren’t. 🙂 I really believe they are fantastic.

    My focus this year for reviewing cirruculum is my high school biology course and middle school Earth Science. I would like to read about how you plan for the year and how you document your plan so you can refer back to it year after and year and make changes to it instead of recreating it each year.

    I would love to see a blog on classroom organization/time management of a science teacher. With labs and the “extras” it gets difficult to get everything in!

    I’m so glad I found this page again because I thought I had bookmarked it (I laughed out loud when I found “The Scariest Worksheet Ever” a few weeks ago). I love the breadth of hands-on activities and will for sure purchase some as I get closer to the topic.

    Also, I absolutely love the way this is set up with other science teachers. I am seeing so many different perspectives on teaching science (*cough* biology) and am finally warming up to TPT and blogging arenas! Maybe one day I will join! 🙂

      Haha! Yes, the students typically laugh too when they see the Scariest Worksheet ever. 🙂 I’m glad you’re enjoying seeing all the others too; they really are fantastic! Thanks for stopping by my website.

    I am so glad that you are a part of this giveaway because I found some great activities like your Gingerbread Genetics activity for my TAG/PreAP students to use this year! I can’t wait to look through the rest of your resources! Thank you for all you do!

      I hear you! I have a bunch of biochemistry activities with beads and pipe cleaners, because I had the same problem as you. I had to work in a non lab classroom a lot of my teaching career. Any specific subject? You can email me at mrs.bethany.lau@gmail.com if you would like and discuss further!

    Hi there! I’ve been following you on TPT and IG for a a while and absolutely love your biology resources. I was wondering if you had any sort of tutorial on how to use adobe illustrator to create worksheets and resources of my own for my middle school class. I would truly appreciate as I am a 3rd year teacher and trying to grow as a “tech savvy” teacher.

    I am new to your blog but could not stop looking at your resources. I AMA second year teacher and at my school, which is very small, I am the only biology teacher. I taught 6th grade last year, so I’m looking for all of your biology resources and posts.

      I hear you. I never had tech resources at schools I worked at, but I hope to start incorporating more tech into my resources. I hope you and your students enjoy using your chrome books!

      Some of my chemistry resources which have several options for basic skills might be useful for you, but I don’t have a lot for middle school age. I’m mainly a high school person.

    Just discovering you! I am excited to explore your site and materials. I teach K-7 individual and small group classes at a private school. We chose out own curriculum based on student interest and ability. I’m sure that your resources would be prefect for our students.

    I would like to see you do a video lesson and post it on your page. I would like to know how you help those students who need help with reviewing at home or doing homework. This would be great for integration in a 1-to1 classroom.

    I’d like to see more ways to help students with lower levels of math, succeed in the math heavy parts of chemistry.

    Thank you for doing this! This is awesome!

      Yeah, so often their math skills hold them back in chemistry (and physics and during genetics in biology class too!) I’m working on scaffolding techniques for chemistry. Have you seen my scaffolded factor label method pages? https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Scaffolded-Factor-Label-Method-Chemistry-Homework-Worksheets-3077504
      I’m working on some later units (working on bonding right now) and scaffolding within those as well.

    Thank you for doing this giveaway. I’d like to see an interdisciplinary unit on science and literacy! I like that you use Adobe Illustrstor. I just learned how to use Pages on Mac and it’s a lifesaver and the best to format with!

    Reply
    1. mrs.bethany.lau@gmail.com Post author

      That would be a great idea! I do try to focus on literacy in my class and I have written a few readings that help students learn how to analyze scientific literature. I do love Illustrator! I’ve heard Pages (certain versions) can be good too.

    “Microscope calibrating time.” My most dreaded task. Microscopes do not like me, I have a terrible time focusing them.

    Reply
    1. mrs.bethany.lau@gmail.com Post author

      Yes. I found that to recalibrate them, you should use the tiny acres in the back, to adjust the height of the stage to allow things to be focused, after it has been misaligned. Best of luck this upcoming school year!
