Students break into small groups with four or five students per group. Each is given a styrofoam plate on which they write their group name on and 2 teaspoons of warm water. They place their plate on a paper towel somewhere in the room and draw a circle around the puddle of water.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
