In each episode, Robert Payo and Stephanie Chasteen trek across the poles to find ways to help you teach science in your elementary classroom. We tackle common misconceptions your students might have about science using stories, teaching activities, and the latest news related to the poles.

Here are some suggested ways to use podcasts in your teaching:

  1. Listen to learn new teaching ideas and build your science content knowledge.
  2. Have older students listen, write, and discuss episodes or segments of episodes as a way of integrating science and literacy activities.
  3. Inform your school librarian to include these in your school’s audio collection.
  4. Share on your classroom web pages for families or with your friends!
