Ten Pin Linky Party: Science and Social Studies Ideas

I couldn't help myself today. I have been working on a couple of blog posts, but I keep getting distracted by all of these wonderful linky parties. When I saw that today was Science and Social Studies ideas for Ashley's Ten Pin Linky Party at Just Reed! I knew I couldn't skip this one. I am planning on doing some more co-teaching in the classroom for Science/Social Studies and one of the things on my list for the summer is to find ideas of ways I can modify and adapt classroom lessons for my kiddos. This linky party is perfect for me to start looking around and brain storming ideas.

Here are ten of my favorite Science and Social Studies Pins/Ideas:

1. This first one is not just one idea, but it is too good not to share. In searching I came across The Science Penguin. Ari's blog and Pinterest have sooooooo many wonderful ideas all in one place. I suggest you check them both out!

2. I am loving this anchor chart from Amanda at One Extra Degree.

3. I love finding apps or websites that I can use to enhance my students learning. Brain Pop was super helpful last year in enhancing our understanding of topics. I was excited to find a list of apps from Playful Learning for science and will be checking all of these out.

4. Melissa over at Common Core and So Much More has an amazing packet of 140 Interactive Notebook foldables.

5. I love this idea from 2 Busy Brunettes for growing beans. I love the idea of using cd cases, I have had them sitting around in the past with no use for them.

6. I wish I would have thought of this. It is such a great idea! Katie over at Little Warriors has a great post on using Cheetos for pollination.

7. Another great resource I came across for both Science and Social Studies ideas is E is for Explore. On there side bar they have resource broken down by topic and the posts have the links back to the original source.

8. I love the visual piece of this pin. I just wish I could find the original post for it (if you know the source please let me know!).

9. I love all the products Ginger at Ginger Snaps creates. She recently just finished her Science Word Wall Packet and I am super excited to use this next year. The thing I love the most is that they are for grades K-5.

10. I wish I would have known about these apps posted on KidWorldCitizens for some of my kiddos last year. I am looking forward to checking them out and giving them a try.

I am excited to check out all of the other pins posted! Head Over to Just Reed! and link up. I am off to finish some stuff up and will be back tomorrow with a Common Core post and freebies!
