Movement in the Science Classroom



This is a short 3 minute video on how I've incorporated movement into a science classroom. Hopefully it will spark some ideas on how you can get your students moving in class to help them remember some concepts with movement.

NOTE - When I show the Xylum/Phloem movement I forgot to add the the half jumping jack creates an X (which is what the word Xylum starts with to help students remember).

Good stuff. Thanks for sharing. I'll definitely start thinking of ways to incorporate movement into my plans.

I am a new-to-4th grade teacher. I would love to see more about how you use your science notebooks! Do your students simply take notes in them after everything they do on Days 1 & 2? I plan on doing your Day 1 and Day 2 activities!

This is a great idea! I have a number of ELL students and this is perfect for helping them. I will pick some of the vocabulary for each unit to utilize this strategy. Thank you so much...
