Card Board Toys Go Wild - Online and Offline Activities for Learning About Animals The World Wildlife Federation's Go Wild website is a great place to find online and offline activities that can help elementary school students learn about a variety of animals and ecosystems. The site is arranged into six sections; Americas, Asia, Africa, Europe, Polar, and Oceans. Each section includes online games and quizzes about animals. Each section also includes a hands-on activity like creating a shoe box safari.
STEAM Project: Tiny Dancers (A Homopolar Motor) Today we are getting a bit artsy with our science! Does the idea of making a wire sculpture that “dances” entice you……? Tiny Dancers is the third project in our collaborative series STEAM POWER: Empowering kids to explore the world through creative projects. Today’s topic is HARNESS! Because harnessing refers to making use of resources to produce energy we decided to try making a homopolar motor. Wonderful World of Wasps - Carly's Adventures in Wasp Land (Comic) Hi, I'm Carly and I'm a graduate student at the American Museum of Natural History. I study a group of insects called Hymenoptera, which includes ants, bees, and wasps. My specialty is parasitic wasps, which are wasps that lay their eggs on, or inside, the bodies of other insects (generally caterpillars or larval beetles).
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?

Food Chain - Kid's Corner The Food Chain Every living thing needs energy in order to live. Everytime animals do something (run, jump) they use energy to do so. Animals get energy from the food they eat, and all living things get energy from food. Plants use sunlight, water and nutrients to get energy (in a process called photosynthesis).
You Know How This Experiment Ends, But You Should Watch It Anyway Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service. First off, I have to marvel at how incredible this is to watch and admit that it made me too gawk, giggle, and grin like a child. I can't wait to show people this. Wonderful World of Wasps - Web Comic Wasps may not be as big as lions or bears, but these insects are among the most successful predators on Earth! Different wasps species have different ways of preying on other animals. Some wasps, called parasitoids, lay their eggs in the bodies of live insects (hosts). As the larva grows, it feeds on the host from the inside out! But humans have little to fear.

The Upcycled Suspension Bridge Engineering Project . Activities for Kids: Adventures In Learning . PBS Parents Pin It If your kids are anything at all like mine, your playroom (read: entire home!) is probably littered with a crazy mash-up of toys: different brands, different figures, different materials, and that one stray Polly Pocket head, the body for which is sadly forever lost. Not that you necessarily want to introduce something ELSE into the middle of that beautiful childhood playtime chaos, but this highly creative, super simple upcycled suspension bridge engineering project will help your child learn about civil engineering AND give your Playmobil people a clear pathway to quickly go from Wooden Blockville to Heartlake City — and there’s nothing like an aesthetically pleasing and extremely practical municipal construction project to boost public morale! (Especially when your ‘public’ is only an inch tall and have removable heads!) Pin It
