Knowledge is power and school is cool, to quote the old sayings. But seriously, when did science get to be so cool? People are smarter than ever, and by that we mean that more people in the world have access to education than ever before. With figures like Bill Nye and tv shows like The Big Bang Theory, scientists are becoming the new cool kids in the neighborhood.


If you’re a science teacher, you already know how cool science is. So we’re here to help you get your students excited about science with these super easy-to-use lesson plan templates. With these great resources that we’ve put together, your students won’t hesitate to think that science is super cool and even fun to learn. And the best part is that you don’t have to do any of the work! Just click on the template that you’d like to use and get started with a free trial from Ving.

 

Plate Tectonics

Learning about plate tectonics and geological formations is pretty tough for a lot of students. It can be difficult to understand something that you can’t really see happening. This template includes a variety of explanations and demonstrations to accommodate students of various learning styles. We’ve included video examples by The Science Guy himself as well as the Geology Kitchen to help make learning fun and easy.


A difficult topic gets a creative makeover when the content is engaging and digestible (though you probably don’t want to eat what they’re cooking up in the Geology Kitchen!). The short answer quiz that’s included helps teachers gauge students’ understanding of the content. Use this free lesson plan with your students today!

Types of Rocks

The plate tectonics lesson carves a good path for learning about rock types and formations. Students will visit the Geology Kitchen again, this time to learn all about rocks—with food, of course. Detailed explanations of each rock type are provided as text, along with some common examples that students might recognize. They will apply their rock formation knowledge to the included quiz by categorizing a few rocks into the correct types.


Take a break from lesson planning for a couple of days by using this convenient template with your students. Just click the image below to get started!
