Science is FUNdamental

There are many easy ways to incorporate technology into science instruction.  Simple PowerPoints are the tools of the past.  Don't think your only resource is the textbook in digital format. There are many interactive websites which can be used. Here I have provided a few resources for the elementary level.

Intermediate Technology Resources (Grades 3-5)

Study Jams - offers both science video tutorials, photo slideshows, and karaoke songs

Phet - interactive simulations in science  

Primary Technology Resources (Grades K-2):

Sid the Science Kid - great games to integrate into the science curriculum for K-2

Interactive Technology Assessment Tool

Kahoot - game based (assessment) digital learning platform

Let's work together and discuss the following resources and how we can best integrate each one into our lesson plans in order to meet the Next Generation Science Standards.  Let's get talking! Leave comments below!
