Pendulum Lesson Plans Reviewed by Teachers Why Select Other Criteria? Sometimes you only have 45 minutes to review participles before Tuesday's assembly, or you need curriculum you know was reviewed after a certain date. Duration: If curriculum authors indicate how long it takes to implement a resource, i.e. a 30-minute vocabulary exercise, a three-day science experiment, or a two-week expository writing project, we note it for you. If not, our teacher reviewers may indicate an estimated amount of time it would take. When you select a duration in this box, you'll see only resources with that stated duration. Resource reviews that do not include a duration will be excluded from the list. Reviewed After: Limit the resources you see to those reviewed since the date you choose by clicking the box and making a selection.

Giant Pandas Sign up to get panda news from the Zoo. Giant pandas are black and white bears that live in temperate-zone bamboo forests in central China. Among the best recognized—but rarest—animals in the world, they have come to symbolize endangered species and conservation efforts. As few as 1,600 giant pandas survive in the mountain forests of central China. More than 300 pandas live in zoos and breeding centers around the world; most of these pandas are in China. Giant pandas Mei Xiang and Tian Tian are at the National Zoo under a Giant Panda Cooperative Research and Breeding Agreement, signed in January 2011, between the Zoo and the China Wildlife Conservation Association. Seeing Pandas at the Zoo Giant panda cub Bao Bao is now on exhibit! The panda house at the David M. Visitors will be allowed into the panda house on a first-come-first-served basis. Due to the expected number of visitors to see Bao Bao, Asia Trail will be open to one-way traffic only. It was an exciting day at the David M.

Pages — Beyond Weather & The Water Cycle Why the North Pole Is Really a South Pole (and Vice Versa) Want to stay on top of all the space news? Follow @universetoday on Twitter If you go out hiking this weekend and somehow find yourself hopelessly lost in the wilderness, but suddenly remember you have a compass with you, you can use it to find north because the needle always points towards the Earth’s geographic north pole, which never changes… right? Wrong, wrong, and wrong. (But still bring a compass with you. See more videos from MinutePhysics here.

BBC Science - How to: make a magnetic compass 29 August 2013Last updated at 12:24 Mark Miodownik, presenter from Dara O Briain's Science Club on BBC Two, reveals how you can perform simple science experiments at home. By magnetising a needle you can create your own working compass. Our planet acts like a giant bar magnet creating a magnetic field that protects Earth from space radiation. Magnetised metals naturally align themselves with this field and you can harness this invisible effect with Mark's simple step-by-step instructions. You can harness Earth's magnetic field to create a compass that will point towards north. Cut a circle around 1/4 inch (5-10 mm) thick from the end of a cork. Stroke a needle with the north end of a bar magnet around 50 times, lifting between strokes. Attach the magnetised needle to your circle of cork with tack and carefully place it into a dish of water. The needle will rotate until its north pole (the tail) points towards the magnetic north pole (shown on the compass). Continue reading the main story
