Title How do PhET simulations fit in my middle school program?
Description I wanted to share how I use the PhET sims in my school. This shows the topics we address in our grades 6-8 and lists the sims that help us. I have more activities on the PhET website that show specifically what I do in class, so this is just meant to be helpful to see the scope of my use.
