Resources for Elementary and Middle School Science

Hello there, fellow scientists! Welcome to my science education blog. My name is Mary and I teach 5th and 6th 4th and 5th grade science in Texas. Read more about me.

The main goal of Sockmonkey Science is to provide resources for science teachers. I remember it was so hard my first year trying to figure it all out alone. I hope you will find many useful activities, projects, labs and ideas to engage and excite your students!

Children are naturally curious, they love to touch things, and they love to get messy…Isn’t that what science is all about?

Inspire and nurture the scientist in every child.

Remember, we are all scientists. No matter your age, never lose your curiosity, creativity, and thirst for knowledge.
