Animal Life Cycles (FREE Learning Material) We are still continuing our vertebrate study and at this point we explored the life cycle of each group. The aim of this study is to compare the life cycle of each group, to differentiate their development and identify their similarities as well. Prior to this, I introduced the Animal Kingdom and the Vertebrate group. To start off, we have The Life Cycle of a Frog for amphibians. Printable materials used here are my Animal Kingdom file, Vertebrate Sorting Cards and the Animal Life Cycles FREE printable.
Brain Function, Anatomy & Diagram Much of the brain's physiological task involves receiving information from the rest of the body, interpreting that information, and then guiding the body's response to it. Types of input the brain interprets include odors, light, sounds, and pain. The brain also helps perform vital operations such as breathing, maintaining blood pressure, and releasing hormones (chemical signals that control certain cells and organs). The brain is divided into sections.

In organisms, cells work together to form tissues and organs that are specialized for particular body functions.9-12 Systems of specialized cells within organisms help perform essential functions of life. Any one system in an organism is made up of numerous parts. Feedback mechanisms maintain an organism’s internal conditions within certain limits and mediate behaviors.
Motion: Introduction Motion is one of the key topics in physics. Everything in the universe moves. It might only be a small amount of movement and very very slow, but movement does happen. Don't forget that even if you appear to be standing still, the Earth is moving around the Sun, and the Sun is moving around our galaxy. The movement never stops. Motion is one part of what physicists call mechanics. The Human Body - Super Brainy Beans Senses Keeping Healthy Teeth Take a look at your teeth in a mirror. Galileo Drops the Ball - Virtual Experiment In around 1590 Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) climbed up the Leaning Tower of Pisa and dropped some balls to the ground. Two balls of different masses, but of similar shape and density that were released together hit the ground at the same time. Until then it was commonly believed that heavy things fall faster than light things. Many people still believe this, and casual observation of everyday phenomena often does tend to confirm this view. If you drop a brick and a feather at the same time the brick will probably hit the ground first.

The girls and I kicked off Week 1: Me on the Map of the Life-Sized Body Maps today! We started out by tracing ourselves on Acceleration - Physics for Kids! Acceleration is a way to measure how fast something is speeding up. Suppose you are riding your bike. You start out going very slowly, hardly pedaling at all. Now you begin to pedal as hard as you can, to speed up - you are accelerating. Artists and Art Week 9 - Pablo Picasso - Nurturing Learning In looking online for the book we read about Picasso, I found this great artist study site. I really don’t think most of the Picasso activities would be too successful with Bear at this time; however, they look really fun so I will come back to them in a year or two and try. We read When Pigasso and Mootisse and another book whose title eludes me but really showed the distinct styles Picasso went through in developing his art.
Top 10 Most Dangerous Plants in the World 1. Most likely to eat a rat Giant Pitcher Plant: Nepenthes attenboroughii Discovered more than 5000 feet above sea level on Mount Victoria in the Philippines, the giant, carnivorous pitcher plant secretes a nectar-like substance to lure unsuspecting prey into a pool of enzymes and acid. A series of sticky, downward ribs makes it nearly impossible for trapped prey to escape.
