    I keep reading about teachers referring to science AIMS activities. I'm only familiar with AIMS as a charting tool for fluency. What is AIMS science?

    TIA

    AIMS is a company out of California. They develop hands-on science experiments for all grade levels and in accordance to state standards. They're great :)

    Cool if I taught a lower grade I probably could use the stuff. So many good ideas floating around.

    AIMS stands for Activities Integrating Math and Science. They have teacher trainings for which you can sign up. I love the activities that have been shared with me, I'd love to go to a workshop.

    I was just hired back at my old school (long story) as a 4th grade teacher and from 3rd on up uses AIMS for science. From what I've seen, they are so much fun for the kids but take a lot of preparation ahead of time. I'm not much of an organized person so I have a feeling that by the end of first quarter, my organizational skills are going to vastly improve! Thank God!
