Top 100 Blogs for Teachers by Teachers

Guide to Online Schools has another great Top 100 list- this one is titled the 100 Best Blogs by Teachers for Teachers. The science education section features 10 great blogs plus something called Science for All -I’m not so sure about that one 🙂 (I’m very honored to have made the list)

  • Science Fix: Experiments fill this site! Middle school science teacher Darren Fix has created a blog filled with lesson plans and web links. Each post even has a video that demonstrates how do the experiments in your own science labs.
  • Making Science Fun: Science experiments are what students remember most when they leave their classrooms and go into the real world. So why not get a load of new science ideas on Steve Spangler’s science blog! You will find easy-to-follow instructions, accompanied by pictures and videos.

  • The Science Queen: Sixth through eighth grade science is covered on this site. The blog gives science teachers a number of helpful notes, lab ideas, movies, and assignments.
