Do I smell freshly sharpened pencils? Is that the clicking sound of a brand new protractor? Are you surrounded by notebooks, fun new pens and markers that you’re dying to use?
Yes! It’s back to school time!
Not ready for back to school? Wondering who do you turn to for help to start your new school year off right? Back to School with Steve Spangler Science is always a great place to start! We’ve never let you down in the past, have we?
Now that you know where to go, you’re probably wondering what should you buy first? Well, the First Days of School Kit, of course! It’s packed with a little bit of everything to get the kids excited about science. Jelly Marbles, Water Gel, Windbags, UV beads and more – what else could you need?
Oh yeah, stuff for the rest of the year!
Here’s the good news! You know that Steve Spangler Science has all the reliable products that you and your students have come to know and love in the years past. I mean, who can go a whole school year without Insta-Snow, Windbags, Jelly Crystals, Slime and Worms? BUT..did you know that most of the experiments you love come in Classroom Kits, too? The classroom kits provide enough product for 24-30 kids. Plus, you will also find a teacher guide and even a student guide (in most classroom kits) to help ease the pain of lesson planning.
I see that glimmer in your eye… now, you’re getting excited about the new school year! Which is great, because we have so many more new and exciting products coming for 2014-2015.
If you been on the website at all this summer, you probably noticed things like new digital experiment guides, but did you notice that there has been a new Sick Science kit released each week?
No? Here are the 6 new Sick Science Kits you may have missed, but were newly released this summer:
- Density Divers
- Oil Spill Polymer
- Rising Water Secret
- Rainbow Snow
- Egg in the Bottle
- Inertia Challenge
- Soda Bottle Tornado – just released this week!
Plus, 5 more new Sick Science Kits are still on the way!
Not sure how to incorporate more Science into your curriculum for the year? Your friends at Steve Spangler Science can help with that, too!
With younger students, you might want to try connecting Science to Children’s Literature. Here are some great stories that keep the kids interested and inspire thought, paired up with fun science experiments: Axle Annie with Insta-Snow, Put Me in the Zoo with Spot Dot, Diary of a Worm with Insta-Worms and Zack’s Alligator (you get not just one, but two growing alligators with this activity set).
Need more ideas on Science and Literature connections but like to learn in the privacy of your own home? You say you also need more continuing education credits, but prefer a hands-on workshop? Then you’ll probably want to take Julie Gintzler’s Story Time Slime Online and Steve Spangler’s Virtual Science Workshop!
Steve’s putting the “S” back in STEM! The Virtual Science Workshop will teach you how to use inquiry-based experiments and eye-catching demonstrations to promote independent exploration, increase student engagement and open the opportunity for STEM careers.
