Survival of the Fittest Microbes: Examining the Conditions of One River and the Microbes that Thrive
In this lesson, created for grades 6 - 12, students learn about the harsh conditions of Spain's Rio Tinto River and research the microbes that nonetheless manage to thrive there. They then synthesize their knowledge by creating a reality television program set in the Rio Tinto in which the microbes are the "contestants." The lesson includes an article about the Rio Tinto with accompanying questions, a detailed classroom activity, vocabulary list, discussion questions, extension activities, inter
Knowledge technologies in context
This unit explores knowledge technologies, that is, software systems that can represent, interpret, formalize or interrogate phenomena and create models of how the world works. It demonstrates how a well designed system can have positive effects on the work 'ecosystem', potentially allowing more time for people to concentrate on their strengths. Emphasizing core concepts of representation, interpretation and situated use in context, this unit will help masters students and those involved in spec
Global Methane Isosurface Wave
An animation of a three-dimensional isosurface of global methane in the atmosphere evolving over time, from a global data assimilation model. The globe of the Earth starts out opaque, then becomes transparent in order to more clearly see the structure of the isosurface. The isosurface exhibits wave breaking in the southern hemisphere.
Annually Occurring Aerosol Features: Biomass Burning in South America from August through September
Aerosol index over South America from August 1, 1987 through September 30, 1987 as measured by the Nimbus-7 Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS)
In this unit materials you will learn about the history of Spain and the important place of Arab and Jewish cultures in Spanish history. You will study a number of language points to help you talk about history and will write descriptive texts using a variety of stylistic devices.

Even a Jailbird can Learn the Gas Laws - Part 3 - Gay-Lussac's Law
This video explains the concepts behind Gay-Lussac's law, as well as works through the math required in order to solve a problem involving Gay-Lussac's law. The computer-generated voices can be annoying to some, but high-school students generally find them amusing. This video was created because a high-school chemistry teacher requested an entertaining video about the gas laws - because she has found that her students are generally bored with the topic. (5:15)

Offered by the Science Learning Network, the Air Travelers Web site is "an introduction to the basic principles of buoyancy, properties of gases, temperature, and the technology involved in hot air ballooning." Four activities are described along with any materials needed, directions, and questions that help students understand the concepts. A bonus activity is also provided that explains how to build your own hot air balloon using common household items.
What Is Energy? Short Demos
Three short, hands-on, in-class demos expand students’ understand of energy. First, using peanuts and heat, students see how the human body burns food to make energy. Then, students create paper snake mobiles to explore how heat energy can cause motion. Finally, students determine the effect that heat energy from the sun (or a lamp) has on temperature by placing pans of water in different locations.
