Watch HMH author, master educator and science specialist, Dr. Michael A. DiSpezio, as he presents an assortment of his favorite elementary science activities. From building sound-making devices to launching paper gliders, you’ll be introduced to inexpensive, repeatable, and standards-based activities. Tailored to be effective in traditional, online and hybrid classrooms, these science engagements are guaranteed to motivate your students as they reignite their passion for learning.

But this won’t be an ordinary edWebinar. No way! During this session, you’ll have the opportunity to see several hands-on activities. Through your process interaction, you’ll uncover key features that make a science activity successful. To attempt these edWebinar activities (not required), make sure you have the following materials nearby: several sheets of scrap paper, scissors, several paper clips, four drinking straws, tape, a three-foot-long kite string (or crochet thread) and two paper cups.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and school leaders of the kindergarten through elementary levels.
