This week’s Tuesday Teaching Tip comes to you on a Wednesday.  Evening.  Ahem.  But, hey – it’s summer, right?  Time to slow down a bit.  ;) CKA Board Member and Kindergarten teacher Kimberly DeMille shares this week’s fabulous idea for a Common Core kindergarten science lesson with us.

One of my favorite units/ lessons is living/non-living.  I start off by teaching my class the song “It’s Alive/Non-living”  by Maryann Harman. Then we sort photographs.

Last, we record two living & two non-living things in our science journals.
