Birds of a Feather shows a variety of birds and asks students to explain the expression: Birds of a feather flock together.
Richard Glenn: Iñupiaq Geologist
In this interactive resource adapted from Raven Radio/KCAW, listen to Iñupiaq Eskimo and geologist Richard Glenn describe the complementary nature of Alaska Native ways of knowing and the methodology of Western science.
Using a household fan, cardboard box and paper towels, student teams design and build their own evaporative cooler prototype devices. They learn about the process that cools water during the evaporation of water. They make calculations to determine a room's cooling load, and thus determine the swamp cooler size. This activity adds to students' understanding of the behind-the-scenes mechanical devices that condition and move air within homes and buildings for human health and comfort.
Bridge Types: Tensile & Compressive Forces
Students explore how tension and compression forces act on three different bridge types. Using sponges, cardboard and string, they create models of beam, arch and suspension bridges and apply forces to understand how they disperse or transfer these loads.
This activity is a teacher-led demonstration of continental drift and includes a math worksheet for students involving the calculation of continental drift over time. Students will understand what continental drift is, why it occurs, and how earthquakes occur because of it.
Newton Gets Me Moving
In this lesson, students will explore motion, rockets and rocket motion while assisting Spacewoman Tess, Spaceman Rohan and Maya in their explorations. They will first learn some basic facts about vehicles, rockets and why we use them. Then, the students will discover that the motion of all objects including the flight of a rocket and movement of a canoe is governed by Newton's three laws of motion.
You Are There: First Flight
Students learn about archives and primary sources as they research original historical documents. While preparing an imaginative first-person account as if witnessing an historical event, they learn to appreciate the value of the first-person, eye-witness account and understand its limitations. Note: The literacy activities for the Mechanics unit are based on physical themes that have broad application to our experience in the world concepts of rhythm, balance, spin, gravity, levity, inertia, mo
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 6 Month Old: Normal: Postural Reflexes - Positive Support Reflex
Some consider the positive support reflex as a primitive reflex, but others consider it a postural reflex. I think it is a postural reflex because it is necessary for erect posture and blends into volitional standing. Infants with prenatal or perinatal corticospinal tract disease will often refuse to support their weight on their feet. The positive support reflex is the first postural reflex to develop and is present by 3 to 4 months of age. When the baby is placed in vertical suspension with th
4.5 Photographs showing the detail: broken lugs The bases of the columns to which they were attached originally on pier 3 deserve closer inspection. Even at this scale, the two fractured lugs where the tie bars were formerly fixed are clearly visible at the right-hand and left-hand sides of Figure 28 (arrowed). The southern (left-hand) column base in Figure 28 is shown at about ×8 magnification in F

Activity 1: Defining culture
We know that culture guides the way people behave in society as a whole. But culture also plays a key role in organisations, which have their own unique set of values, beliefs and ways of doing business. This unit explores the concepts of national and organisational culture and the factors that influence both.
How to be a Great Navigator!
In this lesson, students will learn how great navigators of the past stayed on course that is, the historical methods of navigation. The concepts of dead reckoning and celestial navigation are discussed.
Workshop "Humor zorgt voor een betere werksfeer"
In deze les leer je je mening geven over een bedrijfspresentatie over humor op het werk. Je leert ook de informatie te begrijpen uit een gesproken tekst, de speech van een professionele spreker op de workshop. Tegelijk steek je ook wat op over hoe humor voor een betere werksfeer kan zorgen.
Preparing the house for the holidays
Op het einde van deze les kun je:Bespreken welke voorzorgen je in huis moet nemen voor je op vakantie vertrekt.
