Periodic Table Battleship I have posted a lot about Chemistry lately. My oldest has been studying it and really enjoying it. I love his science-y mind! Today I have a really fun & simple chemistry game to share. We played Periodic Table Battleship! This game can be played even by kids who know nothing about the Periodic Table Yet.
3D Models of the Human Anatomy Different organs can work together to perform a common function, like how the parts of your digestive system break down food. We refer to an integrated unit as an organ system. Groups of organ systems work together to make complete, functional organisms, like us! There are 11 major organ systems in the human body. The circulatory system is a body-wide network of blood, blood vessels, and lymph.
details?id=com.curtisgetz Mars Explorer allows you to explore The Red Planet as a whole, or through the eyes of one of three NASA rovers currently on the surface. Learn about each of the three rovers and the data they collect on the surface of Mars. •Search through years worth of pictures the rovers have taken. •Save and share your favorite pictures. •Learn about how the rovers work and how they were built. How Far Is It Between This tool can be used to find the distance between two named points on a map. You can decide which two points to measure and then find out the distance between them as the crow flies and distance when driving. Type in the names of the places below and click the Show button.

Boyle-ing Water: Chemistry & States of Matter Science Activity Not only does the water in your syringe appear to be boiling, it is boiling. Living as we do at typical atmospheric pressures, we tend to think that water has to be hot to boil. But the transition from liquid to gas can occur not just as the result of increased temperature, but also as the result of decreased pressure. Pulling on the plunger reduces the pressure on the gases inside the syringe by increasing the volume—a relationship given by Boyle’s Law: For a gas in an enclosed space at a constant temperature, volume and pressure vary inversely. In other words, doubling the volume halves the pressure. iPads + Water Rockets = Fun Science & Math Lesson This morning I stopped by my friend Mike Morrell’s 9th grade science class. It was water rocket launch day so I knew it would be a fun day. Mike’s students have been working on rocket designs and building their rockets for a while. The water rockets are the first phase of the unit. Full model rockets with engines will be launched later this spring. To get rough measurements of the heights each water rocket reached Mike had students using a clinometer iPad app.
Science Education - Research & Training - NIH NIH Home > Research & Training Resources for Students Featured Site: NIAMS Kids Pages Your childhood and teen years are a prime time to learn habits that will help you keep your bones, joints, muscles, and skin healthy for years to come. Resources for Educators Contact Us Please follow the netiquette when posting on FFmpeg mailing lists, especially avoid top-posting and thread hijacking (that is, replying to a thread and changing the subject line to something completely unrelated that was not being discussed within the original thread) and please read the Code of conduct. Configuring your mail client to break lines after 70 or so characters is a plus. If you attach files, avoid compressing small files, uncompressed is preferred. Also please try to avoid posting mails with overly long signatures or nonsense corporate disclaimers that claim the content of your mails is confidential. Attached patches should not have application/octet-stream as mime-type, but text/plain or even better text/x-diff or text/x-patch. If you send us a patch, please make it some form of unified diff.
Science resources for bilingual elementary classrooms If you’re not a subscriber to Pat’s Picks for STEM Educators (run by the physics & astronomy librarian at Cornell), you may want to take a look. She posts great lists of useful resources (recent lists include public TV programs on science, national lab education programs, lesson plans for biology teachers, and TappedIn communities for teachers), and I thought I would share this most recent one. She writes: Yesterday I had the pleasure of demonstrating some web resources, via TappedIn for several elementary school teachers. Some of them expressed interest in science materials for their class rooms which have both English and Spanish speaking students. Here are some sites of interest.
