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. Here are just a few of our favourite ideas.
Digital Library for Earth System Education Climate Change and Colorado's Future Climate change is real and it is occurring faster than originally predicted. In this video series, scientists explain how climate change is affecting the state of Colorado, while citizens share stories and solutions. One of the more recent videos features an interview with University of Colorado Boulder Professor Emeritus Al Bartlett on the "arithmetic of growth". A set of problem-based model lessons were developed by teams of middle and high school teachers with CU-Boulder scientists and science educators.
The Energy Story - Introduction Energy is one of the most fundamental parts of our universe. We use energy to do work. Energy lights our cities. Energy powers our vehicles, trains, planes and rockets. Frozen Planet: Explore the polar regions Click on the image below to start exploring the Arctic and Antarctic.

What you will be viewing is the thinking process the effective two-way immersion teacher follows as she/he plans a lesson. “What is the big idea, or focus, of my lesson?
Science CPD For Science Educators The National Science Learning Network offers an inspiring and innovative range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities for: The primary programme will support you to engage children in exciting practical science activities, making relevant links to real-life contexts and other subjects across the curriculum. You will have the opportunity to try out new activities and strategies and think about how you can implement them back at school. Finding courses Designing a Science Fair Project Science Lesson A great way to get kids excited about science is through creating a project for a science fair. It doesn't have to win a prize to be a fun and rewarding experience! Consider getting involved this year in either a local public or private school science fair or a homeschool science fair.
Science Out Loud — MIT+K12 Videos SOL is a YouTube webseries hosted and co-written by MIT students on everything from the physics of skydiving to the biochemistry of farts. With episodes no longer than 5 minutes, these videos take the traditional concepts taught in middle and high school science, engineering, and math (STEM) classes and puts them in a context completely outside the classroom. You won’t find a single equation in these videos - instead, they feature the gamut of hosts and personalities who will take you into labs, rivers, and the sky!
