Grade-Alike meetings are gatherings by grade level or specialty areas, held after school hours. Teachers from the same grade level or specialty area meet with mentors who bring armloads of ideas, activities, suggestions and goodies from their own files.
Five, three hour sessions are scheduled by each grade level or specialty area.
- NGSS in the science classroom.
- STEAM activities, projects, and competitions.
- Easy NGSS labs for physics, biology, chemistry and earth science.
- Google Classroom for science.
