Tree Ring Plates
Another project we did in our life science class for educators was talk about tree rings. I liked the activity one teacher did with her kids where they used a paper plate and the students made rings for each year of their life. They had to write something significant that happened in their life in each ring they made. I thought it was a fun idea for anyone studying plants.
I started this blog many years ago as a classroom science teacher with the express purpose of sharing notebooking ideas with other educators. I have since moved into a technology coach position within our district so this site has morphed into a general teaching blog. Basically anything that I see or do in schools that I think is pretty cool gets highlighted here. If you are visiting to find notebooking information please look at my earlier posts. I have tried to label all my posts so information is easier to find...so, when in doubt look at the labels. As always, if you have any question please feel free to email me and I will do my best to help!
