Global Climates and Seasons. A Look at Temperature and Precipitation
Several factors affect a region's climate and the number and types of seasons it experiences. Here students explore colorful animations of annual changes in temperature and precipitation.
Home is Where the Heart is
As Second Graders, it is important for you to examine the different aspects of communities. In this WebQuest, you will learn the three types of communities: rural, suburb, and urban, and compare them with each other.
These games will help you practice different types of measurement.
Types of Fish
In this project you will learn about different types of fish.
Getting to Know Your Satellite Imagery and Study Site
The purpose of the resource is to introduce students to Landsat images and how to identify the land cover types within those images.
Fire Fuel Protocol
The purpose of the resource is to measure the different types of fuels for fires.
The Nature of Tectonic Plates
This lesson provides an overview of the various types of interactions between tectonic plates. The discussion uses the analogy of a cracked egg to describe the tectonic plates composing Earth's crust.
High levels of ultraviolet light can be harmful to many biological systems, as this higher energy radiation has a mutagenic effect on plant and animal cells.
Nuclear Energy: France vs. the U.S.
This lesson presents a comparison of the outlook for energy independence between the United States and France. Topics include the average per capita energy usage between the two countries and differences in types of energy usage.
This activity provides a look at poverty among different race/ethnic groups and family types over time.
Residential Mobility and Migration
In this module you will have the opportunity to explore the frequency of different types of residential moves carried out by Americans. You will examine some of the basic determinants of residential mobility by looking at variations in different types of mobility by age, marital status, education, and housing tenure.
U.S. Housing Patterns, Living Arrangements, and Life Chances
In this assignment you will use U.S. census data to get an overview of housing patterns (ownership and types of housing) and living arrangements as a way of understanding more about one example of what Weber referred to as life chances (or, basically, the ability to access to resources we need to live a good life).
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.
