I just started (yesterday) teaching ESL science in grades 5-7. I am pushing in co-teachand provide in-class support. I have only a small amount of experience teaching science. I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for free websites that can help me plan how to modify lessons for ELL students.
Right now we are working on Nutrition, gr 5 and the Environment grade 6. I am not sure about grade 7 yet.
I've found Brainpop ( if your district has a subscription for it) and the
following useful -Sheppard Software's Kid's Corner for life science and
Chem4Kids for physical science.
All the best,
Here are some of the websites I use to teach science. Hope they work for you too.
