Dimensional Analysis: The three day feast that inspired Thanksgiving (Factor / Label Method)
Thanksgiving is a difficult time of year with students excited for vacation. Here is a great no-prep activity for secondary science students which will allow them to compete against each other and the clock while reviewing their skills solving problems using dimensional analysis.
I love this activity because it keeps my students critically thinking and working together. In this problem set are seven multi-step problems with questions, a student guide sheet with some conversions and a detailed teacher's Key with how to set up the problems and the answers.
Although geared towards Thanksgiving, this a great activity to brush up student math skills in Science any time of year!

I have been teaching for 15 years in Texas. I work in a border community and have a experience teaching LEP, Sped, GT, bilingual, autistic, and BIC students. I have taught PAP and AP courses as well as trailer courses for students who have repeated science classes multiple times.
I like to teach my students using a lot of art and visuals. We create colorful foldables together and research questions that come up daily. I like for my students to be very creative in class. I also show real life examples. Its is important that students understand how science concepts they learn in school can be applied to their everyday life and occupations. I think it is important for students to not only learn the content but to know a little bit about the scientists and time that went into the discovery and establishment of the scientific ideas.
I was honored by College Board as a promising new AP Science teacher and by my school district.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Biology and Art from the University of Texas at El Paso. I earned my teaching certificate at Sul Ross University in Alpine, Texas. I received my Masters Degree from Webster University. I also have graduate hours in Biology from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago.
I am not only a teacher but a parent and an artist as well. I have completed murals for churches in the El Paso area. I also illustrate and create murals for private families and businesses. I write and illustrate children's books.
