Important Information

Welcome to the new Dr. Bailer's Science Lessons Website

The lessons you will find on this website are designed  to meet the  Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) in 6th-8th  grades.  They  are set up for use in a science notebook the size of a  composition book  for a 90 minute block.  Some of  the lessons have live links for  animations and others make reference to videos from various sources.   Please download the videos rather than stream them.  

There is an Exit Ticket for each lesson.  The questions on one side of the Exit Ticket are in a different order.  The title is italicized on one side.


Homework pages Science Shorts and Science Skills can now be found after the lesson pages.  They are designed to be printed front to back. 

Printing the documents

Since the lesson that are on this website are in Word you may  download them to your computer and change the lay out, page numbers, typos and graphics.  

Feel free to make any changes that will allow them  to be more useful in your classroom.


There  have been problems with printing the files.  The last file in each  unit  is a zip file of pdf documents. You won't be able to edit them,  but  they should print correctly.

Teacher Information Document

Please read the Teacher Information.   Inside you will find a list of  materials needed, helpful hints, the  focus of the lesson and SIOP Language Objectives.


The   small boxes at the top of each page are for page numbers.  I encourage  you to number the pages before printing.  It will save your sanity!
