SMARTBoards and Science NetLinks Interactive Activities

The website is very easy to use and they even provide learning benchmarks for the lessons. The really great thing about these lessons is the interactive resources that are contained in each lesson plan.

While I've made it very easy to access these resources, I encourage all teachers to utilize the entire lesson plans found on the Science NetLinks website.

We keep it displayed on our Promethean board and it helps our students get their work done during each rotation and stay on track. Aloha Kindergarten! 119 Interesting Ways To Use…LOTS OF STUFF!
