Science Writer - Help with Lab Reports Welcome to CAST Science Writer, the tool that supports students in writing lab and class reports. This tool is geared toward middle school and high school students. Check out the supports and help available in Science Writer described below. Or click the "Take a Tour" button above to see how Science Writer works. A Report Structure All parts of a science or lab report are broken into small steps so the author can concentrate on one part of the report at a time. Science Matters Yah, I know some of us are winding down from schooling for the summer months, but I can’t help but stay on the lookout for resources I know I’m going to be needing again all too soon. I’ve come across some interesting science things of late that I want to check out – perhaps you, too, can find something useful. For your perusal: Free Online Textbooks and Curriculum Chemistry Packets: 13 units of chemistry; also has links to YouTube chemistry videos

5 Fun Science Experiments for Kids Everyone knows science is awesome, but did you know you can do science right in your own kitchen? Ok, maybe you did, but if you're not sure where to start, we've got five really fun experiments that demonstrate the scientific principles of buoyancy, surface tension, density, chemical reaction and non-Newtonian fluid. Best of all, families can do these easy experiments with common, household items. Sesame Street's fuzzy, blue scientist Grover stopped by the #5facts studio to teach us a few things about the scientific method. Watch the adorable video above to see the experiments in action, then use the instructions below to gather everything you need for your home science lab. Looking for more amazing experiments families can do together?

Make a Bouncing Polymer Ball - Experiment with Polymers Introduction Balls have been toys practically forever, but the bouncing ball is a more recent innovation. Bouncing balls were originally made of natural rubber, though now bouncing balls can be made of plastics and other polymers or even treated leather. You can use chemistry to make your own bouncing ball. Once you understand the basic technique, you can alter the recipe for the ball to see how the chemical composition affects the bounciness of the ball, as well as other characteristics. The bouncing ball in this activity is made from a polymer.

Secret Worlds: The Universe Within - Interactive Java Tutorial Secret Worlds: The Universe Within View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons. 50 EdTech Resources You May Have Missed-Treasure Chest Jan 23 2011 Welcome to this week’s Treasure Chest of 50 EdTech Resources You May Have Missed. I try to post some of the more interesting topics and resources that I’ve come across during the past week. This week, I’m in a bit of a fun-loving mood so let’s start off with this site and see if you can do it! Do Nothing for 2 Minutes

ClassicScienceLife Mr.Q's LabNotes is a free monthly newsletter which provides lessons and insights as to new developments in Mr.Q's world. Free is good. Free is our friend! Differentiator - free web app to help teachers differentiate using Blooms Taxonomy The Differentiator is a simple web app that helps you create objectives based on Bloom's Taxonomy. You simple click on the thinking skill, content, resources, product, or group tabs and then select what you want the student to do by clicking on the sub categories. For example, on the Thinking Skill tab, you can chose Remembering, Understanding, Applying, Analyzing, Evaluating, or Creating and then a sub-term. Product tab has visual, multi-media, oral, written, and construct tabs as what the student would create as a product to demonstrate their learning. I think this is a great tool to help teachers come up with different objectives and some different activities for students to do in class.
