Classcraft is a website that teachers can use to "gamify"  their classroom content and behavior expectations. The design of the website is based on concepts from fantasy games and literature with character classes such as mage, healer, and warrior. Students get to choose which type of character they will have and what that character looks like. They are rewarded by their teacher for making progress or demonstrating good behavior with experience points (XP).

We rarely have enough time to truly devote instruction on Science topics and I really feel it's vital and shouldn't be skipped. Therefore, I am looking for more ways to integrate science instruction into ELA and Math time periods.
