Animal Life Cycles (FREE Learning Material) We are still continuing our vertebrate study and at this point we explored the life cycle of each group. The aim of this study is to compare the life cycle of each group, to differentiate their development and identify their similarities as well. Prior to this, I introduced the Animal Kingdom and the Vertebrate group. To start off, we have The Life Cycle of a Frog for amphibians. Printable materials used here are my Animal Kingdom file, Vertebrate Sorting Cards and the Animal Life Cycles FREE printable. The link of the file is at the end of this post.
Food Chain - Kid's Corner The Food Chain Every living thing needs energy in order to live. Everytime animals do something (run, jump) they use energy to do so. Motion: Introduction Motion is one of the key topics in physics. Everything in the universe moves. It might only be a small amount of movement and very very slow, but movement does happen. Go Wild - Online and Offline Activities for Learning About Animals The World Wildlife Federation's Go Wild website is a great place to find online and offline activities that can help elementary school students learn about a variety of animals and ecosystems. The site is arranged into six sections; Americas, Asia, Africa, Europe, Polar, and Oceans. Each section includes online games and quizzes about animals. Each section also includes a hands-on activity like creating a shoe box safari. Applications for Education Due to its mix of online and offline activities Go Wild offers something for almost all classroom settings. The site is one that I might consider adding to my classroom blog as a resource for parents who are looking for educational activities to do at home with their children.
Galileo Drops the Ball - Virtual Experiment In around 1590 Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) climbed up the Leaning Tower of Pisa and dropped some balls to the ground. Two balls of different masses, but of similar shape and density that were released together hit the ground at the same time. Until then it was commonly believed that heavy things fall faster than light things. Many people still believe this, and casual observation of everyday phenomena often does tend to confirm this view. If you drop a brick and a feather at the same time the brick will probably hit the ground first. But this is because of differences in the amount of friction between these objects and the air around them, not because their masses are different.
Acceleration - Physics for Kids! Acceleration is a way to measure how fast something is speeding up. Suppose you are riding your bike. You start out going very slowly, hardly pedaling at all. Now you begin to pedal as hard as you can, to speed up - you are accelerating. Now that you are going at a normal speed, you stop pedaling so hard, and just pedal normally.
The National Inventors Hall of Fame The Inventors Hall of Fame, located in Akron, Ohio, was established in 1973 by the National Council of Patent Law Associations, now the National Council of Intellectual Property Law Associations, and the Patent and Trademark Office of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The year of induction is in parentheses at the end of the entry. Information Please® Database, © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Great Websites to Teach Anatomy o... September, 2014 looking for some amazing web tools to teach human anatomy? The websites I have assorted for you below are probably among the best you can find out there. From engaging interactives to live simulations of the body system, these tools will enable your students to explore the mystery of the human body in unprecedented ways. Some of these tools provide 3D imaging of parts of the human body so students will both learn and live the experience of discovering the hidden secrets of our body. Exploring Nature Educational Resource indicates a section of the site that is available to subscribing members only. Not a member?

Life Cycle of frogs The Egg Frogs lay their eggs in water or wet places. A floating clump of eggs is called frog spawn. The large and slippery mass of eggs are too big to be eaten. Biology Archives - Science Sparks Playing Detective – add some science to role play This post is all about adding a bit of science sparkle to role play, the activities should hopefully add a simulating and educational twist to an already fun game. My little boy is usually a bit reluctant to play role play games, but generally if I add in a task or some props he is much more enthusiastic.
