Please be aware that the materials listed are for the optional labs that are included in many lessons. These are aptly entitled  TO DO YOURSELF,  and I considered them to be activities that a motivated student might enjoy - on their own time.


While a few of the TO DO YOURSELF labs were similar to those that I implemented, nearly all of my hands-on activities were ones that I found elsewhere or designed myself. 

BTW: Below are some of my favorite activities, now posted on Teachers Pay Teachers (TPT):

• mastering a dichotomous key to trees

• student flashcards  / identifying trees (of Eastern USA)

• self-paced bullfrog dissection guide

• basic metric units / conversions

• gardening / a controlled experiment

• seed observation

• acid rain / seed germination -- introduction to controlled experimentation
