Teacher Links

There are so many science teaching resources that it can be overwhelming to locate useful resources. As beginning teachers, it is important to embrace available technologies that aid in collaboration and resource sharing. Provincial School Districts and myVTC (through the NLTA) promote collaboration and resource sharing for practicing K-12 teachers. It is highly recommended that you utilize and contribute to these resources once you start teaching.

The resources below are just a sample of the diverse array of science education resources that are available online. You are encouraged to build your own collection of science education resources and share any resources that you have found particularly useful in your science teaching thus far.
