Didattica | Meteo School Questo sito WEB è stato sviluppato all’interno del progetto METEOSCHOOL*, finanziato dal MIUR nell’ambito delle attività tese a favorire la diffusione della cultura scientifica. Il progetto, nato da un’esperienza didattica iniziata nel 2003 nella scuola elementare di San Piero in Frassino (Arezzo) e proseguita in altre scuole elementari della Toscana e del Trentino, vuole avvicinare i bambini e i ragazzi all’osservazione e comprensione dei fenomeni atmosferici coinvolgendoli in attività sperimentali e manuali, quali la costruzione, con materiali di uso comune, di “strumenti” meteorologici. All’interno di questo sito, possono essere consultati alcuni documenti didattici sulla meteorologia. Il documento principale è rappresentato dalla guida per insegnanti (scaricabile in formato PDF), realizzata insieme alla Giunti Editrice (Firenze), pensata per le scuole primarie e secondarie di I grado.

Understanding Evolution The bacteria that changed the world - May, 2017 The make-up of Earth's atmosphere, once the domain of Earth science textbooks, has become an increasingly "hot" news topic in recent decades, as we struggle to curb global warming by limiting the carbon dioxide that human activity produces. While the changes that humanity has wrought on the planet are dramatic, this isn’t the first time that one species has changed Earth’s atmosphere. Three billion years ago, there was no free oxygen in the atmosphere at all. Life was anaerobic, meaning that it did not need oxygen to live and grow. That all changed due to the evolution of Cyanobacteria, a group of single-celled, blue-green bacteria. Read the rest of the story here | See the Evo in the News archive

Evolution Resources from the National Academies In the News: Your Inner Fish – A Scientific Adventure Have you ever wondered why people look the way they do? Why our hands and feet have five digits instead of six? Why we stand on two legs instead of four? It took 350 million years of evolution to produce the amazing machine we call the human body and in Your Inner Fish, a three-part series based on the best-selling book of the same name, author and evolutionary biologist Dr. Follow that adventure now on PBS Darwin's Insights Continue to Inspire the Academy's Work The ideas of Charles Darwin and the concept of evolution by natural selection continue to have a profound influence on modern biology – they permeate almost every area of scientific exploration. In 2009 the National Academy of Sciences joined many other organizations in the international scientific community to celebrate the 'Year of Science,' which commemorated Darwin’s 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his masterwork On the Origin of Species.

PROVARE PER CREDERE Esperimenti scientifici per la scuola media Questo progetto è stato realizzato dall'insegnante Lucia Carini, durante l'anno scolastico 2012-2013, con le classi 1°A- 2°A- 3°A dell'Istituto Comprensivo Statale di Verolanuova, con l'obiettivo di educare i ragazzi alla scienza, come patrimonio di conoscenze, non costruite attraverso un processo programmato ma attraverso tentativi, errori, evoluzione. Le conoscenze scientifiche non hanno nulla di definito e di assoluto ma solo valore di probabilità. Revisione dei testi in lingua inglese: Prof.ssa Stefania Bonera e Prof.ssa Giuseppina Pancera TRY TO BELIEVE - Experiments JUST TRY -"The proof of the pudding is in the eating" This project has been planned and carried out by Lucia Carini, a teacher at "Ist.Comp.St.di Verolanuova", together with her classes 1°A-2°A -3°A during the school year 2012-2013. Scientific knowledge is not definite and absolute, it has got probabilistic value. "Ercole De Gaspari" di Verolanuova (Bs).
