The Perfect Purple Feather Read-Aloud Online Storybook
This read-aloud is The Perfect Purple Feather written by Hanoch Piven. Feeling a poke from within his pillow during the night, Jacob maneuvers a fluffy purple feather to the surface. Beginning with a bluebird in a nearby tree, various animals explain how they would put it to good use-as a wing, a pen, a tail, etc. When a tick tickles an elephant's nose with it, the elephant sneezes, causing the feather to fly through the sky, suggesting the possibility that it may land in the reader's bedro

The Kankapot Creek Coast Guard: Public service through water quality monitoring of a stressed stream
The Biology Department at the University of Wisconsin -- Fox Valley is carrying out a long-term project in which students gather water quality data on a nearby impaired stream. These data will eventually be used to help formulate a restoration plan for the stream. This exercise follows the procedures our students use to assess stream habitat quality, chemical and physical parameters, and benthic macroinvertebrate diversity and pollution tolerance. Data collection is completed in the field using

NeuroLogic Exam: Introduction: "x" Values
So far we have a handle on the vertical localization within the neuroaxis but we have a very flat, one-dimensional structure. We need to have a way to come up with "x" values. Let's rotate the neuroaxis by 90 degrees so we can see it in the coronal plane. Now we can appreciate that most structures in the neuroaxis have a right, left or midline orientation on our "x" axis. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student m
How Clean is that Water?
This lesson plan helps students understand the factors that affect water quality and the conditions that allow for different animals and plants to survive. Students will look at the effects of water quality on various water-related activities and describe water as an environmental, economic and social resource. The students will also learn how engineers use water quality information to make decisions about stream modifications.
