At Chabot, we offer teacher workshops both during the school year and summer. In an effort to support teachers throughout the year, we are developing various teacher networks to achieve this goal. One of our most popular network opportunities involves a group called FEAST (Fun Exchanges and Activities for Science Teachers). A growing number of teachers, interested in science, meet six times during the school year at Chabot to share science lessons and engage in discussion about important science topics. To become a member of FEAST, go to the
FEAST: Physical Science in Your Classroom!
Saturday January 23rd, 9am to 12pm
Sharpen your knowledge and learn ways to engage students to better understand physical science in their environment.

Newton's Third Law of Motion; for every action there is a reaction; for every force there is an equal and opposite force.
We highly encourage you to bring a five to ten minute activity to share. Choose a mini lesson that addresses one or more of the above questions and which your students have found engaging. If you don’t yet have something for the above topics, feel free to bring a mini lesson that covers another aspect of science. If you have a write up of your lesson, please bring hardcopies to share.
