Map Your World
Map Your World is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about plans by mapping their rooms. The activity begins with a brief explanation of the variety of maps we use, explaining how archaeologists use plans. Kids are then given step-by-step directions for creating a plan that shows their room and its contents. Directions for two additional activities are included, Map a Bigger World and Map Your Room to Scale.

3.4 Preparing to move on – connecting theory with skills This section has been encouraging you to think about using two additional sources to help you prepare for change. The first of these sources has been other people that you know. The second has been a selection of ‘academic’ theory that can be linked to learning. We hope that this has added to your knowledge and understanding of your own learning. In this next section, the focus shifts to gauging how your work with these two sources has used and (we hope) developed a number of y

Digital Earth Workbench: 3D Hurricane Luis
The Digital Earth Workbench is an interactive application that runs on a SGI Onyx Infinite Reality system and is controlled by an Immersive Workbench, tracked stereo glasses, and a tracked wand. The application allows an unprecedented freedom to roam georeferenced datasets at multiple resolutions and timescales. This animation is one of a series of direct screen captures of the application in operation. The occasional menu appearance denotes direct intervention by the operator to add or delete d
Get Your Motor Running
Students investigate motors and electromagnets as they construct their own simple electric motors using batteries, magnets, paper clips and wire.
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.
Architects and Engineers
Students explore the interface between architecture and engineering. In the associated hands-on activity, students act as both architects and engineers by designing and building a small parking garage.

" Over the Hump and Jump"- Counting with Transitional Numbers
This computer-animated video provides practice counting with transitional numbers, numbers ending with nine. The video shows the "nine" numbers climbing to the top of a mountain with the "tens" number being the summit. Many examples are given. ( 2:55)
Plants That Aren't Plants: Mosses and Lichens
Mosses and lichens are not given much attention in introductory biology laboratory courses, in part because instructors lack skills necessary to cover the topic-namely, moss leaf cross sectioning and lichen chemical spot tests. Acquiring confidence in just these two techniques, as well as familiarity with basic terminology, lays a foundation for further investigation.
Plan B: Rescuing a Planet Under Stress and a Civilization in Trouble
