What Is Energy? Short Demos
Three short, hands-on, in-class demos expand students' understand of energy. First, using peanuts and heat, students see how the human body burns food to make energy. Then, students create paper snake mobiles to explore how heat energy can cause motion. Finally, students determine the effect that heat energy from the sun (or a lamp) has on temperature by placing pans of water in different locations.
Beetles also have two pairs of wings and can fly very short distances. The beetle is a great representative of the insects, as all the major parts are easily identifiable.

Leaf Area Index for Africa September, 2000, through May, 2001
MODIS observations also allow scientists to track two vital signs of Earths vegetation. At Boston University, a team of researchers is using MODIS data to create global estimates of the green leaf area of Earths vegetation and how much sunlight the leaves are absorbing. Called LAI, for Leaf Area Index, and FPAR, for Fraction of absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation, both pieces of information are necessary for understanding how sunlight interacts with the Earths vegetated surfaces-from th
