I’m so excited to announce that my guide to teaching the sixth grade Waldorf Rocks and Minerals block is now available!
I just loved teaching this block, even though I knew nothing about rocks when I started!
This block made a convert out of me, though, and I’m officially a rock nerd!
I’ve taught this block three times now, and I’ve learned a few things along the way that I’m happy to share with you here.
- How do you enliven such a dry and scientific block? (Tell lots of stories — I’ve got some ideas for you right here!)
- What about field trips and projects? (Got ya covered.)
- How do you decide what topics to focus on and when? (That’s what this guide is all about.)
I just know that after you look through this guide you’re going to be just as in love with this block as I was!
This thorough guide gives you the outline and framework you need to teach the block, review activities and assignments and a list of recommended resources to check out of the library or purchase. My own lesson plan notes can be your guide as you work your way through your resources and find the right way to bring the content to your students.
I’ve also included photos of main lesson pages, dictations, handouts and a final block test. And don’t miss the artistic activities — the two poems and one song I used for artistic work during the block.
In all, there are over 40 pages of resource and information in this guide and I just know you’re going to love teaching this block as much as I did!
