Praise for The Science Teacher's Activity-a-Day

"Research shows that students are more attentive at the start of a lesson. The Science Teacher's Activity-a-Day provides short and engaging activities to get your lesson off to a dynamic start."
RYAN ADAMS, Ed.S., Douglas County Teacher of the Year, Douglas County School System

"As a differentiation facilitator, I know how difficult it is for teachers to engage students of various learning styles and intelligences. I recommend this book to science teachers in middle through high school to kick-start science lessons."
LYNN FREEMAN, School Improvement Specialist, Metropolitan Regional Educational Service Agency, Atlanta
