Working from home means the kitchen is SO CLOSE BY! Turn that temptation into a learning experience with Kitchen Chemistry: Cool Crystals, Rockin’ Reactions, and Magical Mixtures with Hands-On Science Activities (Nomad Press). Preview the experiments to use with your students, try them with your own family, or videotape them to upload and share with your class. Then, of course, since you’re already in the kitchen take a break for a cookie and cup of tea.
For a chance to win this book, submit a comment to this blog by Thursday, April 23, and share your favorite science topic to teach. One lucky teacher will be randomly selected to win! (Congratulations to Darcie, who is the winner of our prize!)
Here are some other great science resources for you (and ones that are great to share with families too):
