What Do You Know About Genetics?
This OLogy activity tests kid's knowledge about DNA, genes, cloning, and more with an interactive quiz. The 10-question multiple-choice test covers a wide range of topics, from "What is junk DNA?" to "What is one thing that makes one identical twin different from his or her other twin?" After making their 10 selections, kids can check their answers with a page that shows them how they did on each question and offers explanations of the right answers.
Multiple Sclerosis - Cranial Nerves Exam - Trigeminal (CN V) 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.
Beyond Black History Month
Go beyond approaches that marginalize African American history by "shifting the lens" to look at events from new perspectives. Black History Month can be a wonderful celebration of the contributions that African Americans have made to American history and culture. All too often, however, those contributions are heralded in February but seldom mentioned throughout the rest of the year. Ideally, every month’s history curriculum should include those contributions, but how do you integrate Africa

Andy Warhol Napkin Drawing
The subject of this video produced for Antiques Roadshow is a food-stained napkin with doodles of butterflies signed by the late, 20th Century pop-artist Andy Warhol. The napkin may have come from Diana Vreeland, one of Warhol's closest friends back in 1983 and 1984. Kathleen Guzman, appraiser of paintings and drawings, appears confident that the signature is genuine and suggests an astonishing value for the napkin if the owner were to get it authenticated by the Andy Warhol Foundation.

Groundhogs sing us a song about Groundwater. Concepts cover the historical path of water, uses of water and dangers groundwater faces in this 3:43 video. Teachers may wish to have a word wall with those words that students may have difficulty understanding.
Being safe when you cross the road
A one minute cartoon that shows students what precautions to use before crossing a street. The stop, look, and listen message are given. A good introduction to this topic.
How to Use a Compost Bin
There are a couple types of compost bins you can use along with materials such as leaves, flowers and any types of weeds. This two minute video shows how to make and care for a compost bin in your garden. I have one at school that the students use and it provides a great lesson in recycling.
Niger: Feeding the Hungry
Food distribution is one part of NGO strategy to help Nigeriens through crisis times like the 2010 food shortage. As the approach to development changes and development workers look for strategies to reduce native dependency on foreign work, food distributions are changing as well. Some, like this one, have reduced-price strategies as incentive for farmers to practice new planting patterns.
Medical Treatment for Niger's Malnourished
Niger's 15.8 million people are served by a sparse collection of medical staff—about one doctor for every 30,000 people. Some doctors and nurses are Nigerien, trained to help their own; some are from surrounding African countries, and some come from the United States to work with the under-served. From small clinics like the World Vision clinic near Dakoro in eastern Niger to larger hospitals like Galmi, the ill effects of malnutrition color healthcare routines and treatments.
