You have likely heard of the activity, Picture of the Day, but have you heard of…
Science Picture of the Day?
You see, I’m a science kind of gal. I love science and I wanted to make sure I got to
play teach more science each day. So, I had to get creative about how I was incorporating science into my daily activities.
That’s when I decided I was creating Science Picture of the Day. It’s perfect for morning work, or even a science warm-up. It’s even perfect to use instead of recess. Oh, alright. I guess if you want to send kids outside so you can have your free time instead of playing with science, I understand. 😉
Anyway, the students look at the picture (observation skills – oh yeah!) and then infer (reading skills – drop the mic) what science they see in the picture (science!).
It’s a great way to get students talking!
You can grab your FREE Science Picture of the Day here to try out in your classroom (during recess? No – had to try again. I’m totally kidding. I’d NEVER give up my recess either.).
