50 Awesome Chemistry Videos For The Busy Science Teacher

50 Awesome Chemistry Videos For The Busy Science Teacher
Though we don’t often recognize it, chemistry defines nearly every element of our everyday lives. From the reactions that fuel the sun to the biology of our bodies to the technology in our gadgets, chemistry is at the heart of everything we do and is the central science that unites biology, physics, geology, astronomy, medicine, and countless other fields. Yet chemistry doesn’t always get the credit and recognition it deserves for playing such an awesome role in, well, everything. If you’ve been slighting chemistry, there’s no better time to give the field the credit it deserves than National Chemistry Week. Founded in 1987, the week-long event has helped bring awareness to the role chemistry plays both in our lives today and in our future. You can get in the spirit of the event by checking out a few (or all) of these amazing chemistry videos online.

Science for Kids Water is an amazing substance! It can form into a beautiful snowflake in its solid state or evaporate into the air as a gas. Experiment with solids, liquids and gases to learn more about these states of matter. How do objects move? NJEA NJEA is pleased to provide this collection of online teacher resources as a service to our members. We hope that it will become a vital resource in planning and curricula development. Each month a new topic of interest is presented and previous topics are archived for reference. If you would like to recommend a site, please contact Darryl Ensminger at densminger@njea.org Lesson Planning

Hands-on Activities for Teaching Biology to High School or Middle School Students by Drs. Ingrid Waldron and Jennifer Doherty, University of Pennsylvania The expression "hands-on, minds-on" summarizes the philosophy we have incorporated in these activities - namely, that students will learn best if they are actively engaged and if their activities are closely linked to understanding important biological concepts. Many of our activities are explicitly aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards, as indicated by (NGSS) in the descriptions below and the links to the right.

Virtual Labs The Virtual Lab is an online simulation of a chemistry lab. It is designed to help students link chemical computations with authentic laboratory chemistry. The lab allows students to select from hundreds of standard reagents (aqueous) and manipulate them in a manner resembling a real lab. 10 Tech Tools To Engage Students Websites, apps and devices help teachers teach and kids learn in new ways. Check out these 10 great education tech choices. 1 of 11 Information technology has become so tightly woven into our workday and personal lives that it's hard to imagine life without it. We get directions from GPS, read books on our e-readers, collaborate with colleagues on documents in the cloud, connect with friends on social media and more, and we do it all from our smartphones and tablets. Technology is also driving the way teachers teach and students learn.

Physics To Go: Explore Physics on your own image credit: U.S. Air Force; image source; larger image Newton's 3rd Law What is the purpose of the small rotor on the back of this helicopter? In fact, it's needed because of Newton's third law--for every action force there is an equal and opposite reaction. The helicopter puts a force on the main rotor shaft to make it turn, and the rotor shaft puts an equal and opposite force back on the helicopter.

Home Common Compound Library A searchable database of over 800 common compound names, formulas, structures, and properties. Companion Notes Hyperlinked notes and guides for first semester general chemistry. Construction Kits Flash-based kits for building chemical formulas, names, equations, and problem solutions. Articles Featured articles, books, and tutorials. Toolbox Interactive graphing, popup tables, and calculators. Tutorials Index of self-guided tutorials, quizzes, and drills on specific topics. The 31 Educational Web Tools Every Teacher Should Know about Below is a list I have been working on for the last couple of days. This list features some interesting web tools for teachers keen on integrating technology into their instruction and work routine. There are loads of web platforms that are educationally focused and to contain them all in one list is way beyond the scope of a short blog post like this , therefore I selected only what I deemed the most important.

A Science Teacher Shares Tech Resources For Teachers, Parents & Students I teach Middle School Science, mainly physical, environmental, and life to 6th and 8th graders. Through grants I have acquired 14 iPads for my students to use everyday. Students are also welcome to use their own handheld devices or smartphones. For those who have no devices or technology of their own I also have enough iMacs and Netbooks to create a 1:1 environment of student to technology.

Chemistry resources for Teachers and Students Search over 2000 substance pages for compound structures, properties, spectra, and more. Teaching analytical chemistry? Spectraschool is a great place to start. For lesson starters, try interactive Gridlocks, or our Starters for Ten puzzles. 50 Education Technology Tools Every Teacher Should Know About Technology and education are pretty intertwined these days and nearly every teacher has a few favorite tech tools that make doing his or her job and connecting with students a little bit easier and more fun for all involved. Yet as with anything related to technology, new tools are hitting the market constantly and older ones rising to prominence, broadening their scope, or just adding new features that make them better matches for education, which can make it hard to keep up with the newest and most useful tools even for the most tech-savvy teachers. Here, we’ve compiled a list of some of the tech tools, including some that are becoming increasingly popular and widely used, that should be part of any teacher’s tech tool arsenal this year, whether for their own personal use or as educational aids in the classroom.
