Battle of Jutland (May 31-June 1, 1916) - World War I
Slide-show video showing pictures of the ships that participated in the battle of Jutland during World War I. This battle was on the afternoon of May 31, 1916, when the British fleet encountered the German fleet before the Germans had expected. By the time the British turned and fled towards the main fleet, they had lost two battlecruisers and the numerical advantage. Slides with music and text (which moves faster than can be read)
Visit to An Ocean Planet: Earth's Hydrologic Cycle
The hydrologic cycle is the continual movement of water from one place to another and from one state of matter to another. This site describes a demonstration in which a teacher or small group of students constructs a simple model of the hydrologic cycle. Written instructions and a list of materials are provided. A short list of links to related topics and a vocabulary are also included.

Jan 1 - Greeks fear 2012 will be even worse than 2011 as their debt-laden country enters its fifth year of recession. Nick Rowlands reports.
Give It A Shake, Cornstarch Comes Alive
Science Friday brings you a science fair project for the recession: combine cornstarch and water and make a fluid with bizarre physical properties, on the cheap. Physicists Robert Deegan, of the University of Michigan, and Harry Swinney, of the University of Texas at Austin, explain why the mixture comes to life under the right conditions. (3:40)

Juvenile Common Lionfish
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of a juvenile Common Lionfish. A striking, boldly-patterned fish, the common lionfish (Pterois volitans) has distinctive bands of red and white stripes and conspicuous, elongated, fan-like fins. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (Less Than 2 Minutes)
Kinetic and Potential Energy of Motion
In this lesson, students are introduced to both potential energy and kinetic energy as forms of mechanical energy. A hands-on activity demonstrates how potential energy can change into kinetic energy by swinging a pendulum, illustrating the concept of conservation of energy. Students calculate the potential energy of the pendulum and predict how fast it will travel knowing that the potential energy will convert into kinetic energy. They verify their predictions by measuring the speed of the pend
