Science Websites for Children Science Websites for Elementary School Students by Mandy Donoghue Elementary school students are fascinated with using technology to text friends sitting right beside them, to listen to or even record music, and play games filled with gripping graphics. These activities are all science related. Children are inquiring, observing, gathering, organizing, and concluding. Granted, the youngsters' focus may not be a scientific topic, but the skills they are acquiring can easily be applied to some of the best science websites for elementary school students. Use these websites with students as motivators when introducing new science subjects, research projects, and enrichment opportunities. BBC Science & Nature ( page opens up with amazing photography depicting current events on television and radio programs as well as ongoing specials like tracking species in danger of becoming extinct and the world on the move with sea life. Kinds News ( is all about animals.

NASA The 3 R's Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle Every year, Americans throw away 50 billion food and drink cans, 27 billion glass bottles and jars, and 65 million plastic and metal jar and can covers. More than 30% of our waste is packaging materials. Where does it all go? The 3 R’s – Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle have been around for awhile. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Consumer product companies are always selling us a new bill of goods. It takes resources to manufacture and transport all products, even those made from recycled content. So do what you will if you are itching for something new - there are no environmental police here - but don't kid yourself. Buying nothing is better for the earth than buying green. There are exceptions, of course. More often, though, it is greener to follow the old dictum: reduce, reuse, recycle. Reduce "Reduce" means using fewer resources in the first place. When you shop, shop differently. With electronics, extravagance may pay. When you make a purchase, find out how to keep the item in shape. Reuse Recycle

Sustainability: The three R’s rule – Formula E The three R’s stands for: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. This rule is part of the waste hierarchy which is a process used to protect the environment and conserve resources through a priority approach. The aim is to get the most practical benefits from products and to generate the minimum amount of waste. This is what it’s all about: Reduce Waste reduction and waste prevention is all about reducing waste at the source. Waste is often due to the inefficient use of resources or bad planning. Reuse Reuse means using a product more than once, either for the same purpose (for example returnable glass milk bottles) or for a different purpose (such as old jam jars for food storage). It is preferable to recycling because the item does not need to be re-processed before it can be used again which saves both money and reduces the environmental impact. Recycle Recycling is a way to manage waste materials once they have been generated if they can’t be reused. A 4th R: Recover? Do I really need that?

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. 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. Visitors will enter the panda house from the west entrance, by the red panda exhibit, and exit the east entrance. It was an exciting day at the David M.
