    Do you have a hard time squeezing them in your day? How long do you allow for each if you do? Do any of you use a rotation schedule and do them every other week or two weeks then switch? I am really trying to look at what will work next year for my schedule. This past year trying to fit both in does not always work with everything else I have to fit into a day.

    It can be hard to fit in...I aim for three times a week, switching between SS nd science.

    In the class I'm student teaching in we usually do one or the other, and almost every day unless are schedule is off due to testing or a field trip or something. If we fall behind we often catch up by using reading time to cover even more of ss or sci (a lot of the lessons do involve reading so it works).
