Prepare for brick/block laying - Preparing the way for brick/block laying
This resource looks at the tasks required when preparing for brick / block laying. Today the bricklayers are going to construct one of the veneer walls. The carpenters have put up the house frame. They have left the bricklayers the job of fixing the reflective insulation foil. The learners task is to check delivery of materials, position these materials and accurately cut insulation bats so that they are both ready for use.
In this project the learner must use a set of requirements to design storyboards for two websites. The learner is situated in a fictitious company (Arachnoid Web Services) having commenced work as a Junior Web Designer.
Build using Rapid Application Development - Resource pack
RAD refers to a development life cycle designed to give much faster development and higher quality systems than the traditional Systems Development Lifecycle (SDLC). It is designed to take advantage of powerful development software like CASE tools, prototyping tools and code generators. The key objectives of RAD are: High Speed, High Quality and Low Cost. RAD is a people-centred and incremental development approach.
Cars from the Future
In some cities, especially large cities such as Los Angeles or Mexico City, visible air pollution is a major problem, both for human health and the environment. A variety of sources contribute to air pollution, but personal vehicles account for one of the main sources. Though each car has relatively low emissions when compared to vehicles of the 1970s, there are so many more cars on the road now that their emissions play a large role in overall pollution. In this activity, students think about a
Spastic Paraplegia - Motor Exam - Muscle Tone Sub-exam - Patient 5
This video features a 54-year-old white male with a history of spastic paraplegia (diagnosed in 1994) and no previous history of heart disease or cardiac workup. He presented to the Emergency Room complaining of three days on-and-off retrosternal chest pain. Patient presented to the ER complaining of three days on-and-off retrosternal chest pain, rated 3/10, lasting approximately 30 minutes, occurring multiple times daily at rest or during activity. The first episode occurred three days before

El Nino Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly Comparison with Zoom: 1982-1983 to 1997-1998
A comparison of the Pacific sea surface temperature anomaly during the El Nino of 1982-1983 with that of 1997-1998, as measured by NOAA AVHRR. This animation ends with a zoom into the 1982-1983 data.
This learning object contains resources and activities relating to normalisation and SQL to produce a prototype of a database system.
Improve the System
This activity will lead your class through identifying possible solutions to the design problems that the current west corridor of FasTracks faces. The students will combine what they have learned from all three previous activities to come up with possible solutions to the design problems faced by the system. This activity requires the use of the FasTracks Living Lab.
Ferns attached to a forest rock
Ferns have small, branched leaves, not to reduce gas exchange and water loss, but to increase the surface area for spore producing structures. This demonstrates that plants develop certain characteristics for very different reasons.

Land on the Run
Students learn about landslides, discovering that there are different types of landslides that occur at different speeds from very slow to very quick. All landslides are the result of gravity, friction and the materials involved. Both natural and human-made factors contribute to landslides. Students learn what makes landslides dangerous and what engineers are doing to prevent and avoid landslides.
Time Dilation Video
Is time different to observers moving at different speeds? For more information, see the World Year of Physics 2005 feature. Video Transcript: Two spaceships are traveling together through the galaxy at close to the speed of light. Mounted on one ship is a laser that can fire pulses of light, and on the other, a mirror. The pilot of the first ship fires a pulse at the mirror, and watches as it is reflected back. A clock on board measures how long the round trip takes. But now suppose that he d
Billy Bob Buzzard Read-Aloud Online Storybook
This read-aloud is Billy Bob Buzzard written by Terry Barnett Williams and illustrated by My Way in Education. In this story Billy Bob Buzzard likes to swing and sing. Everyone learns to be ok with being different. There is a pause, next, back button on each page. Each word is highlighted as it is read by narrator. This is a good resource to help build a literacy rich environment in the elementary classroom. It would work well in a listening
