Potential Challenges/Plan B 
As for as possible challenges I feel like my timing can be off, whether I am talking to fast or dragging it on. I do not
want to waste any time when teaching this lesson so my overall goal is to make sure timewise I am efficient. Also
classroom management wise could not be the best I want since this is science and we are doing something fun.
So it is important that I make sure to keep classroom behavior under control as well.
