I loved Bill Nye. It wasn't the "I'll watch it if it's on" kind of love, it was the "This show has my complete and total attention" kind. I loved the experiments and learning how things work. So it's no surprise that today one of my favorite subjects to teach is science. I love using things all around the kids to teach them concepts. We have been studying plants and pollination these last few weeks. Because of what I brought in, we ended up discussing how coconuts in Florida and Africa can be genetically linked. This then led to a time at the giant map carpet discussing gulf stream currents, which brought us around to the oil spill and its effects. Yeah, it was a good teaching day.
