Life Science Boy with "green stuff" Learning Goals During this session, you will have an opportunity to build understandings to help you: Distinguish between living, dead, and nonliving Define the characteristics of life Video Overview What is life? 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. Make a disguise/camouflage Where are you playing? Can you disguise yourself with some...
9 Apps for Young Scientists · Playful Learning I am thrilled to have Rebecca from ThirteenRedShoes back with us today. She has a great list of app recommendations for the young scientists in our lives. Mariah asked me to put together a post on science apps available for children. Here are some great new apps that I have encountered recently. Please do leave the links to new applications in the area of science that you have found, as I would love to see more. Plant Cell Vs. Animal Cell The bodies of both plants and animals are made up of cells. Although the basic structure and most of the features are the same, there are many points of differences between the two. The primary differences between both cells arise because of the fact that plants have to produce their own food by photosynthesis. Another important distinguishing factor is that plants have to support their own weight, which animals do by means of their skeleton.

The site is colorful and makes silly sounds as you move your mouse around the page. Kids can read science trivia, science jokes, and play science games. The site also has just over a dozen experiments that kids can perform in school or at home under the supervision of their parents. This site from the BBC offers information, games, and quizzes on a wide variety of scientific topics. The site is very simple to navigate with only three categories: Living Things, Materials, and Physical Process.
How to start plants from seed indoors to transplant in the garden later Andrea Levy, The PD With visions of plump, juicy tomatoes, crisp cauliflower and sunny marigolds dancing in their heads, some gardeners spend late winter sowing seeds indoors and pampering their emerging beauties until it's warm enough to move them outdoors. These indoor gardeners like to get growing early for several reasons. One, a packet of a dozen or so seeds, which costs a few dollars, is a fraction of what ready-to-plant botanicals cost. "It's cheaper than buying flowering plants and vegetable starts," says Christine Harris, an Ohio State University Extension Cuyahoga County master gardener, who won the statewide award of volunteer of the year at the International Master Gardener Conference in Charleston, W.V., last year. "Costs for these have skyrocketed due to fuel costs in greenhouses and for transportation."
Bubbles That Don't Pop - Unbreakable Bubble Recipe If you're tired of bubbles that pop as soon as you blow them, try this recipe for unbreakable bubbles! Now, it's still possible to break these bubbles, but they are much stronger than regular soap bubbles. Examples of bubbles that truly won't pop include plastic bubbles, which are essentially small balloons. This recipe makes bubbles using a sugar polymer to accomplish much the same result. Unbreakable Bubble Recipe 3 cups water 1 cup liquid dishwashing detergent (Joy is a good choice) 1/2 cup white corn syrup Simply stir the ingredients together to make the bubble solution.
Parts of Plants Each part of a plant has a very important function. All plants produce flowers for the same reason: to make seeds so another plant can grow. Leaves: These are the parts of the plant where food is made by photosynthesis. Leaves take in carbon dioxide from the air, water from the soil, and energy from the sunlight. Butterfly Life Cycle: Article with Lots of Pictures Bees in Hive The Butterfly Life Cycle Let’s explore a butterfly’s life cycle in detail, including all four stages of life. All butterflies have "complete metamorphosis." To grow into an adult they go through 4 stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Each stage has a different goal - for instance, caterpillars need to eat a lot, and adults need to reproduce.
Science Teaching Resources: Lesson Plan Resources for Science Teachers Below are free science teaching resources for teachers in UK schools to help you save time spent on lesson planning for Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4. Primary or secondary school science teachers may find these websites useful for developing their own lesson plans or for signposting their pupils to innovative online content. Key Stage 1 National Grid for Education School Power 4 to 7 Years can help pupils learn about energy, materials and forces. It is ideal for use with an interactive whiteboard. BBC Science Clips are science activities in Flash to help children meet KS1 science requirements. BCS1 Living or non-living What is the difference between living and non-living? All living organisms display common characteristics of life which distinguish them from non-living things. All living things can move, respond to the world around them, need food, get energy from food, get rid of waste, grow and reproduce, although in some cases they may not show these life processes in an obvious way. Learning Intention Students should understand how living things differ from non-living things (because they move, respond to the world around them, need food, get energy from food , get rid of waste, grow and reproduce, although in some cases they may not show these life processes in an obvious way).
