New York Science Teacher

This site was created in 2005 with the goal of creating a central point where all Science Teachers, whether from New York State or the continent of South America could come to access quality teacher created materials. The majority of the material found within this site was graciously uploaded and shared by hard working teachers who wanted to show the world some of their best work. There are many resources here, for multiple topics in many different formats. There are science labs, demonstrations, lesson plans, activities, worksheets, notes, regents review material, educational related information and much more.
