Sharp teeth function to tear and shred prey. The large eye sockets support large eyes, indicating the cat has effective eyesight for hunting. The cat's limbs are very flexible to allow for optimal agility. The cat's hind claws are very sharp to give the animal good traction. The ribcage provides protection for the cat's organs.
California Spotted Owl
Owls sit high in trees and use their head-turning ability to search for food such as snakes, spiders, and small rodents (skunks, mice, and chipmunks). They do not eat plants and are considered carnviores.
Butterfly camouflaging with brush in the forest.
Butterflies are true flight insects and have two pairs of large wings that are covered with tiny scales. Butterflies are generally brightly colored and are important pollinators for many plants. They have specialized mouth parts for sucking nectar from plants.
Multiple Sclerosis - Motor Exam - Screening Tests Sub-exam - Patient 16
Shelly is a 38-year-old African American female who initially presented with transverse myelitis 2 years ago. A lumbar puncture revealed multiple oligoclonal bands in the cerebral spinal fluid. MRI has demonstrated numerous plaques in the bilateral cerebral white matter. She eventually went on to recover from her initial attack but since her second attack has continued to progressively worsen. Her gait and other motor functioning have deteriorated and she is now wheelchair bound.

TOMS Ozone at the South Pole: September Averages from 1979 through 2000
The year 2000s Antarctic ozone hole is the largest ever observed. Scientists continue to investigate the phenomenon, and are somewhat surprised by its scale. Using data from NASAs Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) instrument onboard the Earth Probe satellite, researchers can evaluate and compare current conditions over the south pole to readings taken by other instruments in years past. Continued monitoring of polar ozone levels helps researchers gain a better understanding of how the plan

NASA CONNECT Who Added the Micro to Gravity?
In NASA CONNECT Who Added the Micro to Gravity?, students will learn about microgravity. They will be introduced to combustion science and the importance of fire safety on the International Space Station. Students will also learn how chemistry plays an important role in microgravity research. They will observe NASA engineers and scientists using measuring, ratios, and graphing to analyze data. Grades 6-8.
Learning Guide: Unit 5 - Good nutrition for learning.
We start off Unit 5 with a story that encourages you to reflect on a key question: Why should the provision of nutritious food for vulnerable children be a central concern for school management? We look to Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory to understand the link between nutrition and learning. His theory suggests that higher cognitive levels of performance depend on basic needs being adequately met. This is backed up by evidence from research that shows the significant benefits to learners who

Break the Science Barrier - Richard Dawkins - Part 1 of 3
Break the Science Barrier follows the Oxford Biologist Richard Dawkins as he meets with people who have experienced the wonders of science first-hand. We meet the astronomer who first discovered pulsars, the geneticist who invented DNA fingerprinting, a scientist who discovered a protein that causes cancer, and others. Dawkins interviews famous admirers of science such as Douglas Adams and David Attenborough, and asks them why science means so much to them. We also see how dangerous ignorance of
You Are There: First Flight
Students learn about archives and primary sources as they research original historical documents. While preparing an imaginative first-person account as if witnessing an historical event, they learn to appreciate the value of the first-person, eye-witness account and understand its limitations. Note: The literacy activities for the Mechanics unit are based on physical themes that have broad application to our experience in the world concepts of rhythm, balance, spin, gravity, levity, inertia, mo
