Sparking Science Motivation {Weather} - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

Sparking Science Motivation {Weather}

Science is such a fun subject to teach! The kids usually get very excited for science time too because I never "just read the science textbook." We always do hands-on lessons, interactive notes, and of course, experiments!
I'm linking up with my BBB Joanne to give you some fun, motivating ideas for teaching weather!

You might remember I shared earlier in the school year how we made Water Cycle Bracelets. The kids really enjoyed this!
We also made water cycles in a bag!
And of course, we watched Bill Nye teach about the water cycle! Nothing more motivating than Bill Nye. ;o)

Finally... we used interactive notebook activities!
These interactive notebook activities are found in my Weather Interactive Notebook!

This set of interactive, engaging foldables is included in an awesome Intermediate Science Bundle on Educents! Some of my BBBs and I teamed up with Educents to get you a great deal on some fun Science products!

For a limited time it is $10.99 from Educents which is about 65% off! AND, through April 7, you can use the code ANNIVERSARY20 and get an additional 20% off! That's nine instant downloads for less than $9! And I can personally tell you they are all awesome products because I have them already! :o)    

If you have never purchased from Educents before click here to sign up!

You can also take a peek at some of the other products included in the bundle at any of the links below!
Have fun teaching everyone!


  1. The water cycle in a bag looks like so much fun, and like a GREAT visual for the kids! I'll have to add that to my Science plans. :)

  2. I need to incorporate more science into my day...Unfortunately, with our wacky schedule this year, we have about 20 minutes for science OR social studies every day. That's why I try to incorporate it into my literacy block whenever possible :(( Thanks for sharing your great ideas!

  4. I may or may not have a crush on Bill Nye (and as you already know Levar Burton). It is a toss up as to which theme song I sing more : )
    Love the cloud interactive note!

  5. Hi...just purchased your awesome Science Bundle...can't wait to explore it more (and use it!). Did have a question, though, about educents. As it was my first time to purchase something there, I clicked on the button you provided, but it didn't take me anywhere, but the Today's Deals page, and I didn't see anywhere about a special reward for 1st time users. Was wondering if you could tell me if I did something wrong, or what I could do? Thank you. :)

    1. They usually run a deal but it looks like maybe because of the 20% off they are offering, they are not right now. I'm sorry if that was misleading! I hope you were able to use the 20% discount code! :o)


Thank you so much for stopping by! Please, leave me some love! :)
