This school year I had planned to use Ellen McHenry’s Cells with my highly creative 10 year old visual-spatial learner.

Microbiology Unit Study

We had both really enjoyed her Excavating English book, but I can’t say our experience was similar for the cells book. My son was not connecting with the material. If I have learned anything about teaching this kid, it is that we are wasting time if the material isn’t connecting with him. After several weeks using the Cells book and trying a few different ways to make it work, I decided to ditch it in favor of a personalized unit study. I knew he would do well with that format.

Lesson Plans. Chapter 1: Matter—Solids, Liquids, and Gases Students are introduced to the idea that matter is composed of atoms and molecules that are attracted to each other and in constant motion.

Lesson Plans

Students explore the attractions and motion of atoms and molecules as they experiment with and observe the heating and cooling of a solid, liquid, and gas. Chapter 2: Changes of State Students help design experiments to test whether the temperature of water affects the rate of evaporation and whether the temperature of water vapor affects the rate of condensation. Students also look in more detail at the water molecule to help explain the state changes of water. Chapter 3: Density. STEAM YouTube Channels for Elementary Kids. Indonesian Volcano Erupts Electric-Blue Lava. An Indonesian volcano has erupted what appears to be electric-blue lava flows, as photographed by Reuben Wu.

Indonesian Volcano Erupts Electric-Blue Lava

Although surreal, this bright blue coloration is a result of nothing more than a tweak of chemistry. Volcanoes come in a variety of destructive flavors, both on Earth and on other planetary bodies in our Solar System. Grade 6. Simulation Curriculum Corp. — Starry Night High School Version 7.
