Science at the White House

After viewing a clip of an interview with President Obama about education in the White House, class members are put into collaborative groups to do research on a specialized branch of science. Topics include nanotechnology, space exploration, biotechnology, extreme weather, alternative energy sources, marine biology, and ancient Earth. They write a persuasive letter to the president about why their assigned topic should be chosen to be taught in the White House.

Lesson Planet has given new life to concepts that I have taught for years! It is an awesome resource. I introduced my student teacher to Lesson Planet last year and she is using it this year in her classroom.
