I originally found an idea similar to this online and I knew that I had to immediately make a run to the Dollar Tree and rummage through our science storeroom to collect the needed supplies to make this.

Clearest Way to Teach Moon Phases...EVER!

Essentially, this Moon Phase board allows students to visualize and better understand the cause of moon phases and comprehend the 2 different views that are often given on a diagram (view from space and view from the Earth). Up to this point, I've done a Lunar Lollipop Investigation, which I thought was great, but this beats it by a long shot! A large majority of my students don't really understand why the lit part of the moon doesn't face the sun on part of the view as seen from Earth on every moon phase diagram (see below). Even though I give many different examples and explanations, I still see a puzzled look on several of the students' faces. I really think this method will clear it up for even those puzzled kiddos.

Water Cycle in a Bag

I’m always on the lookout for simple, fun kids’ science activities so when I ran across this water cycle in a bag I couldn’t wait to give it a try. It was a quick prep activity that had a big payoff – my boys watched the water do its thing for days. I hope you love this water cycle in a bag too. P.S.

Optics Educator Guide [6MB PDF file] Una tabla periódica interactiva que muestra para qué se usan los diferentes elementos. Como ya sabréis, con frecuencia os hablamos acerca de diferentes proyectos relacionados con el mundo educativo.

Una tabla periódica interactiva que muestra para qué se usan los diferentes elementos

En esta ocasión nos ha parecido realmente interesante destacar una tabla periódica interactiva que muestra para qué se usan los diferentes elementos químicos y nos explica las principales características de los mismos, lo que facilita enormemente el aprendizaje de la tabla. Tal y como podéis ver en la captura de pantalla que ilustra este artículo, únicamente es necesario acceder al enlace que os indicamos más adelante para consultar la tabla periódica en formato interactivo. Su principal peculiaridad es que a medida que vamos pasando el cursor por encima de cada uno de los elementos la web nos muestra una representación gráfica de su uso y una breve explicación, por lo que su uso es realmente sencillo.

A pesar de que el contenido de la web está en inglés, el uso de dibujos facilita enormemente la comprensión, por lo que el idioma no debería de ser un problema. Science Resources. Science Resources.

Educating Scientists: 6 Science Websites for Kids and Teens

Most school systems do not help at all to stimulate curiosity, quite the opposite: they bury it under the standardization, the tyranny of the curriculum and the acquisition of skills. Scientific thinking, asking questions, seeking explanation of the world around us is in our DNA. But ... does a 12 years old preteen have the curiosity and enthusiasm for learning of a 5 years old child? Fortunately, thanks to technology, today the acquisition of knowledge is not limited to school. We have plenty of ways to approach science and stimulate curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge in children and youth. I propose a selection of educational science websites, both in Spanish and English (and some in other languages) to wake up the young scientists who inhabit our children.

Advertisement by Chris Woodford. Last updated: April 14, 2016. If you've ever sat watching a thunderstorm, with mighty lightning bolts darting down from the sky, you'll have some idea of the power of electricity.

A bolt of lightning is a sudden, massive surge of electricity between the sky and the ground beneath. The energy in a single lightning bolt is enough to light 100 powerful lamps for a whole day or to make a couple of hundred thousand slices of toast! Electricity is the most versatile energy source that we have; it is also one of the newest: homes and businesses have been using it for not much more than a hundred years. What is electricity? Electricity is a type of energy that can build up in one place or flow from one place to another. Static electricity Static electricity often happens when you rub things together.
