What is a "teaching box"?

The "teaching box" is an organizational tool used by teachers around the world. It's the accumulation of ideas, materials, and lessons around a particular topic that you can pull off a shelf and find everything you need to teach about that topic. In the non-virtual classroom, a teaching box takes the form of a cardboard box full of materials and papers. Sometimes it takes the form of a binder crammed with notes, ideas, and lesson plans. The teaching boxes you'll find at My Science Box hopefully provide you with everything you need to teach a unit: lesson plans, assessments, field trip planning materials, resources and tips.
