Bubble Science

August 15, 2015

Bubbles are a fun and exciting topic for students to study when reviewing or being introduced to the scientific method.
Laura Moore posted a great idea for helping students multi-task when using Thinglink.
She suggested creating a cheat sheet that would have all the online resources for students. All they have to do is click on the URL, or the blue words.
This will facilitate the research. Students can create a Thinglink and add the links they used to in their research and experiments.
I created a cheat sheet that includes resources for learning how to make bubble solutions, posing questions for bubble experiments, and various bubble experiments.

iBooks Tutorial by Laura Moore

I had the privilege of working with Laura Moore when we were both teachers on a fourth grade team.
Then Laura became a member of the North East Technology Services team.
Laura is a great resource for integrating technology and engaging students in their learning.
Laura created a Thinglink slideshow tutorial on how to use iBooks.  Laura chose the book by Emma Virjan, What This Story Needs is a Pig in a Wig, to use in this tutorial.
Check out Learn Moore Stuff for more resources.
