Giant Silkmoth Emerges/Expands Wings Realtime/Timelapse
Here we see the original raw footage in both realtime and timelapse. A male Euryalus SIlkmoth (Hyalophora euryalus) struggles out of his cocoon, and then expands his wings. This moth species typically has a wingspan of about 4-5 inches across from wingtip-to-wingtip, and is sometimes mistaken for a bat or small bird when encountered flying at night. What a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (2:11)

Put a Spark In It! - Electricity
Uncountable times every day — with the merest flick of a finger — each one of us calls on electricity to do our bidding. What would your life be like without electricity? Students begin learning about electricity with an introduction to the most basic unit in ordinary matter, the atom. Once the components of an atom are addressed and understood, students move into the world of electricity. First, they explore static electricity, followed by basic current electricity concepts such as voltage,
Through nine lessons, students are introduced to a range of energy types — electrical, light, sound and thermal — as well as the renewable energy sources of wind, hydro (water) and solar power. Subjects range from understanding that the movement of energy at the electron level creates electricity that powers our world, to recognizing the Sun as our ultimate energy source. Through numerous hands-on activities, students explore a wide range of scientific topics related to the fundamentals of e
