Science resource portfolio assignment | Science homework help

Category: Science



As an elementary teacher you will be expected to be the “World’s best

generalist”.  In the sciences, this means you must be prepared to teach life

science, earth science, physical science,  etc. 


However, even if you have a major in one (or more) of the sciences, it is

doubtful that you will have expertise in all the science content you will be

expected to teach in grades one through six. This project is designed to

assist you in remediating a deficient in your science content knowledge. 


Choosing any area(s) of science where you believe that your content

knowledge in insufficient for competent, successful teaching on the

elementary level, you will develop a “resource portfolio”.   Since you may

be required to teach any elementary grade, you are encouraged to collect a

wide variety of materials, lessons and activities that will meet the

requirements of the common core or CT. State department of Education

science standards.  You can also select a topic that you are very interested

in… and use this project to expand you knowledge.



The materials collected for this project may be used in any number of lessons as well as disciplines outside of science (such as math, language arts, etc.) and for a variety of grades that you will be certified to teach.


The resource portfolio must include the following (this is the minimum!!!):

5. Your lessons, activities, websites, etc. must include the intended grade levels.
