:help: I am currently doing my service learning at the University of Central Florida and I am required to do my first lesson in science for fourth grade. I was handed a Science handbook from Harcourt School Publishers, Florida Edition and thought this would be a piece of cake; however, I am completely lost!!! I am doing Lesson 1 (What Is the Water Cycle?) of Chapter 8 (The Water Cycle) and do not know where to begin. Obviously I have had no experience with the teacher handbook, and am intimidated by all of the instructions. There is an "Investigate Activity" that requires a demonstration of making salt and fresh water solutions, then leaving them out for a day to see what happens to them; however, I am supposed to teach the lesson in one day. Am I supposed to just leave this activity out and/or substitute it for another one? I am also confused if I should have students read the sections before I come in, while I am in the classroom, or have them participate in Round Robin or Bump. Basically, I would appreciate any instruction or guiding me through a teacher handbook for science. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
