    I was listening to the Podcast and you asked about special days towards the end. I teach Physics and last year put together a Newton Day – I had to do something to compete with our Chem teacher who did all kinds of fun things on Mole Day. I just had the students do fun activities related to Newton’s Laws and we ate Fig Newton cookies. Any other ideas you could think of for this year?

    Of course! How could I forget about Newton Day! I used to have the students color Newtons that we would post around the classroom. Here is the template we used. http://access.aasd.k12.wi.us/wp/baslerdale/2010/12/10/color-me-newton-2/
