Ideas and Best Practices to Teach Science Through Distance Learning

Engaging K–8 students in the current environment is especially challenging. With the demands on teachers to keep students on-task through distance learning or with social distancing in classrooms, science instruction time is being sacrificed for other priorities. This session will provide teachers with practical guidance on using available tools and resources to teach K–8 science effectively regardless of how you are teaching. Hear advice from fellow teachers for keeping science at the forefront in lesson planning and the benefits science instruction has in keeping students engaged and motivated to learn. We will use examples from our Exploring Science K–5 program to show how students can learn science content and practices, including hands-on activities, in any teaching scenario.
