I used this to show my students what happens during menstruation. I have them fill out where the flow is, when ovulation happens, when the lining begins to shed, and when are the prime times to have sex for fertilization (or the prime times to avoid sex!)
I included readings about what happens during menstrual cycles.
I have attached my rubric, and two worksheets for my sex ed project. In our library, we have blank papers To help the students with MLA format - I have attached samples of those was well. I am sure there are a few things that need explaining, but I can't think of them now, so please email me or add comments if you have questions, or post your version of it!
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.
While I was reading The Magic School Bus,they went inside a cloud. Because this is not a field trip, there should be no driving into clouds :). But in Inside a Hurricane, They make a water cycle experiment.

Watch as the water moves around.
When I was little,I heard about Sir Issac Newton's math.
Now this math is harder but simple.

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.
Share your best hands-on lessons and teaching ideas with your fellow teachers!
The guiding mission behind MyScienceBox is that teachers should have free access to the best hands-on, classroom tested, science lessons. Every time science teachers introduce new content into their repertoire, they should not be required to reinvent the wheel by designing new activities, scaffolding lessons, and creating new assessment materials that hundreds of teachers elsewhere have done. So add your ideas to the site and open your own teaching boxes to teachers everywhere! It's easy!
