Physics For Kids | Superprof. Does your child know what the periodic table is? Do they understand gravity, magnetism or states of matter? Do they know who Isaac Newton is and all about Newton's law of motion? Have you ever talked to your child about Earth and planets in our solar system? If the answer is no, then don't worry! Your child can still become a strong physicist.

We are about to look at how, with a range of science games, science activities, science fair project ideas and science experiments, is best to teach young scientists scientific facts relating to the amazing science that is Physics and generally make learning about Science fun. What Is Physics? Physics is a branch of science that studies matter and motion (from the smallest molecules and atoms to the largest stars and the universe), and how these interact with energy and forces. Physics is not an easy science. To recap, below are the main topics that children and adults alike will study as part of any Physics course: Quantum Physics For Kids.

For two years, I was the Technology Specialist at a school in Georgia.

During that time, I amassed a large collection of websites that I use with my students. You can download my E-Book of Websites for the Elementary Classroom for free from Teachers Pay Teachers or Smashwords, or, you can check back here each week for the website suggestion. For the past two months, I have been busy re-working my Internet Scavenger Hunts. This included checking each and every link to make sure that the links were working, current, and appropriate for the grade level of the Internet Scavenger Hunts, and fixing the ones that weren’t. In the process, I discovered a bunch of new great sites, and “remembered” a bunch of old, bug good sites.

Each of my Internet Scavenger Hunts is designed to meet Science or Social Studies standards, so I decided to put together a list of the Top 10 Science websites. 1.) 2.) 3.) 4.) 5.) 6.) 7.) 8.) 9.) 10.)

About NEED. More than 30 years ago, the NEED Project began as a one-day celebration of energy education when National Energy Education Day was recognized by a Joint Congressional Resolution. In the same year, President Jimmy Carter issued a Presidential Proclamation stressing the need for comprehensive energy education in our schools, a reduction of our dependence of fossil fuels, and increasing use of renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency. Since its founding, NEED has kept its Kids Teaching Kids philosophy as a fundamental principle of NEED programming – encouraging students to explore, experiment and engage and encouraging teachers to embrace student leadership in the classroom.

NEED trains and assists teachers in harnessing the energy of the classroom – the energy of students. NEED is expanding and evolving to best meet the needs of teachers and students – in the classroom and beyond. NEED students and teachers understand energy. The same principle is present in NEED training. Visualizing the Infinite Beauty of Pi and Other. British Science Association | British Science Association. Nature.com. New Scientist.

100 Best YouTube Videos for Science Teachers. By now, YouTube’s value in the classroom should be rather self-evident. No matter the subject or grade level, the website offers up excellent videos to supplement lessons and provide windows into different facts and concepts. Science teachers especially have plenty to love and appreciate with this valuable resource.

Everything from microbiology to astrophysics makes an appearance through a channel operated by a museum, university, educator, professional or interested individual. Because so many of the sciences require visual aids to really open up and explain their very cores and valuable applications. It should be noted that this list does not contain any Mythbusters videos, as I lack any semblance of self-control and would just end up listing 100 of them instead of providing a diverse selection to meet the needs of different classrooms. Rest assured, though, that there is probably a clip from Mythbusters available to fit almost any lecture.1.) 2.) 5.) 10.) 12.) 19.) 23.) 46.) 84.) How It's Made.

A research team on board Australia’s Marine National Facility research vessel, Southern Surveyor, have made an unusual discovery: an island that isn’t there. We rely on maps all the time. Street directories and websites such as Google Maps help us to find our way around unfamiliar places, and help prevent us getting lost.

In some situations, accurate maps are more than just a convenience – they are a necessity. For example, nautical maps used by ships show many hazards such as shallow water, sand bars and coral reefs. Knowing where these are allows a ship’s crew to navigate a safe path to their destination. ‘Sandy Island’ appeared on many maps, including Google Maps and some meteorological maps. The group of scientists from the University of Sydney, who were leading a research team on board Southern Surveyor, noticed the island wasn’t on the ship’s nautical charts, or on French government maps. How this phantom island found its way onto so many maps is not yet clear. More information. Web 2.0 Science Tools. By Laura Turner The following web2.0 sites would be useful for science educators at the high school and middle school level.

Some would also be appropriate for higher elementary grade levels. There are many new ‘tools’ or websites that take advantage of the higher speed and bandwidth of today’s Internet. Web 1.0 tools/websites were text based and web2.0 tools/websites are designed for full-motion video, 3D animations and are generally interactive in some manner. Web 2.0 can also be described as the second round of new technology development and adoption.

April 3, 2014 Joanne Milne hears birdsong and a child's voice for the first time We all take things too much for granted which we only realize when we hear a story like that of Joanne Milne. This is the magical moment a woman who has been deaf since birth was able to hear for the very first time after having electronic implants in her ears switched on. Joanne Milne, 40, burst into tears when the sound of a nurse reciting the days of the week introduced her to a sensory world denied to her throughout her life.

The elation of hearing birdsong, a gurgling tap and a child's voice: In an emotional interview, Joanne, who was filmed hearing her first sound last week after being deaf from birth, reveals how it felt 'It was overwhelming.

Strange Matter: Structure. Science ks1 & ks2 teaching resources. The current national curriculum programmes of study for science at key stages 1 and 2 have been disapplied with effect from 1 September 2013 for pupils in years 3 and 4 and are no longer statutory in relation to those year groups. This means that schools are free to develop their own curriculums for science that best meet the needs of their pupils, in preparation for the introduction of the new national curriculum from September 2014 Science remains a compulsory national curriculum subject at all 4 key stages, and the existing programmes of study and attainment targets remain statutory for pupils in years 1, 2, 5 and 6 in 2013 to 2014, because they will underpin the statutory key stage 1 and 2 tests in 2014 and 2015.

New statutory programmes of study and attainment targets will be introduced from September 2014 for all year groups except years 2 and 6: for those year groups, the new curriculum will take effect from September 2015.
