Activities for children to learn about weather and tools for teachers and parents to help them explain the different types of weather to children.
#27 Cadences : How to play and recognize a Cadence
In this lesson I explain what a Cadence is and the different types of Cadences. I also play them on the piano so you can hear for yourself how these Cadences sound. Remember! A cadence is like a punctuation mark but for music instead of language. (19:02)
Genetically Modified Organisms
While genetic modification of organisms has occurred for millennia, we now have the tools to insert specific genes from one organism into cells of unrelated species. This session illustrates the processes used and how such genetically transformed organisms are increasingly common in agriculture, industry, and medicine, and introduces the ethical considerations of GMO res
#8 Minor Scales: natural minor, harmonic minor, melodic minor
This lesson focuses on the minor scales. There are 3 types of minor scales, natural, harmonic, and melodic. He discusses how music was in church modes and the scales developed from there. Every major scales has a relative minor scale.
Picking a Pre-School
In this professionally-produced video, learn how kids and parents can both benefit from preschool, get tips for what to look for when choosing a pre-school, and understand what types of preschools you should avoid.
Waves, Beaches and Coasts
This program shows the dynamic interaction of two geologic agents: rocky landmasses and the energy of the ocean. Aspects of waves — their types, parts, movement, and impact on the shore — are illustrated. The program also covers shoreline characteristics, currents, sea barriers, tides, and how the greenhouse effect could impact sea level and coastal lands.
Anatomy of a Neuron
In this video, Sal Khan, offers an introduction to the neuron and its anatomy. He says the neuron may possibly be one of the most interesting cells in the body. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education.
Neuronal Synapses (Chemical)
In this video, Sal Khan, discusses how one neuron can stimulate (or inhibit) another neuron at a chemical synapse. He says the neuron may possibly be one of the most interesting cells in the body. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education.
Type 2 Diabetes Treatment - Illumistream Health
In this video, a doctor explains the types of medication used to regulate diabetes. Common medication are discussed, along with when and how they work. 2:57 min.
Understanding Leukemia In Children
In this video, Dr. Guarini from Columbia University is interviewed and explains what leukemia is and who is most likely to have the disease. Leukemia ia a cancer of the white blood cells. There are two types of leukemia. 4:07 min.
Discusses what texture is-it refers to the way something feels. There are two types of texture actual texture and stimulated texture.
Examples are given. (2:05)
This video, done by a high school student in Santa Clara, California, looks at one of the elements of art - space. It shows how to display depth and space. A discussion and examples of the different types of space helps you hve a good understanding of perspective. This video is part of the video collection at NextVista.org (http://nextvista.org), a proud partner of Curriki. (4:13)
This video, done by a high school student in Santa Clara, California, looks at one of the elements of art - form. Forms are 3-d and take up real space. Shapes can be made into forms. Discusses different types of forms, has a review and mini quiz at the end of the video.
Farmers put in long hours and a lot of care for their animals during
birthing season. Join Kyle Brown as he brings you into the animal “nursery” at his family operated hog farm. You will also visit other types of animal farms for a view at their birthing seasons, too. The video addresses piglets, chicks, polts, and calves on the family farm. Run time 03:16.
Cell Division in Animals
This is a brief computer-animated video that describes differentiation in animals at the cellular level (cell division). Once the cells are differentiated they lose the ability to divide. As a result, one cannot grow a whole animal in a culture medium from a single cell. The growth of the whole animal in a single cell is only possible in the early stages of development - after the first one or two divisions. Other key words include: ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm. Run time 01:51.
The World of Chemistry
The relationships of chemistry to the other sciences and to everyday life are presented. An understanding of chemistry as it relates to the real world is presented through many examples, including types of fabric, paints, plastics, batteries, medicines, and fuels.
Invertebrate Fossils - Lesson 16 - Part 2 of 7 In this lesson, you will investigate and learn about horn coral, brachiopod shellswith external spines, the seasonal growth of coral, and Cambrian fauna.You will also explore the first fossils formed with many cells.

Understanding the Brain Through Epilepsy
In the midst of a young boy’s epileptic seizure, Dr. Fritz Dreifuss describes what is happening to him on a medical level. He explains that a lack of adequate inhibitory neurotransmitter function leads to an “electrical storm” in the brain. Different types of treatment are covered, including valproic acid and radical surgeries, along with how and why they are effec
Visual Information Processing: Elementary Concepts
This module depicts the original pioneering research on how the brain’s visual systems transmit and encode information. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, present their work on the visual cortex of the monkey using x-ray images. Two Nobel laureates also recount their serendipitous discovery of “feature detector” cells in the striate cortex that
Rock Cycle Rap
This song spells out and describes the three types of rocks (metamorphic, sedimentary, igneous) in a brief, entertaining rap. The song only touches on the types of rocks. The video might be used to introduce a unit on the rock cycle or to inspire students to create their own music video about the rock cycle. Run time 01:50.
