When I suddenly fall ill, or otherwise don't want to take 10 hours to plan a sub lesson, I usually go online to http://puzzlemaker.school.discovery.com/ and plug in some vocab words for some puzzles (they have some pre-made banks of words also!)
I make four puzzles using the exact same list of words. I usually start them with the word search (even non-readers can do this!) then go on to word scramble, then crossword. This because they need to know the words pretty well by the time they get to the crossword - also, the word search has the word bank on it.
Here's a great web resource:
This is a test bed for posting to Irene's website. I'll be posting at least one full lesson as the semester progresses. My hope is to develop a series of ooey-gooey usshy-gusshies to provide visceral experiences as foundations for particle awareness.
This megabox contains teaching boxes created by the fabulous teachers of the Exploratorium Teachers Institute. What is a teaching box? It generally takes the form of a cardboard box in a science teacher's classroom or garage. Inside you will find the collected materials, lesson plans, background information and ideas needed to teach a set of lessons on a certain topic.
