Welcome, parents and teachers!

Coronavirus update: If you are looking for engaging science writing plus activities and/or discussion questions for your kids/students during this time of remote instruction, please see the topics below. Each link leads to a curated collection of stories that fall under that topic or publisher. On those pages, you can find links to each article, plus a link to activities/discussion questions based on the story.

Below you can find links to activities related to my stories: discussion questions, games, and classroom activities. Science News for Students stories link directly to the supplemental information available on the SNS website.

Interested in bringing environmental issues into the classroom? Check out my article, “Discovering Native Bees” in the 2011 issue of Green Teacher. Classroom activities available in Green Teacher Online.

And if you’re looking for a less stressful classroom environment, check out this 2016 story on the benefits of mindfulness for teachers.

Please take a look around. If you’re looking for something specific and don’t find it here, please let me know!
