What’s the hardest part of any science lesson? For most of us it’s capturing our students’ attention. Since worksheets usually aren’t that exciting, our science lessons try a different approach. Our science lessons were designed to be interactive with your students, which gives them a reason to listen. An involved student will pay attention and take ownership in the science lesson, which fuels their interest even more.

Advantages Of Our Science Lessons

Because every one of our science lessons has been used for at least two years in a real classroom you know you’re getting more than just a great-sounding idea. You’re getting science lessons in which the kinks have been worked out, leaving a consistent flow from beginning to end. You’re also getting a thorough set of teacher notes that reflect what actually happened, and not what we hope or think will. In other words, our science lessons have actual classroom experience, and that is a valuable thing.

Science Lesson Priorities

We want you to know that every set of teacher notes that accompany each science lesson is based on actual events written by the science teacher who performed the science lesson, and was recorded the same night it was taught so the details would be preserved. That’s why the “voice” in the science lesson seems real, like it actually did what it’s describing. It wasn’t always convenient to do it this way, but our standard is excellence and we feel we couldn’t give you an excellent product any other way.

We hope you don’t mind, but to keep your teacher notes from becoming overly-complicated, we chose not to pass them through an English department for a grammar check. Nor were they sent to the local university to be corrected. While we hope there aren’t many mistakes in our science lessons, that’s still not our main concern. All we care is that our science lessons actually work in the classroom. Some teacher guides are so sophisticated and overdone that you have trouble making sense of them, and a perfectly good science lesson can be lost when it’s “over-decorated”. We just wanted ours to be clear, and good enough to be taught “right off the page”.
