This lesson introduces students to the space environment. It covers the major differences between the environment on Earth and that of outer space and the engineering challenges that arise because of these discrepancies. In order to prepare students for the upcoming lessons on the human body, this lesson challenges them to think about how their bodies would change and adapt in the unique environment of space.
Fossils - by StudyJams
Fossils are preserved traces of remains of living things. Paleontologists who study fossils look for teeth, bones, shells, petrified wood, molds and casts, traces of carbon shadows, or even entire animals. Learn more about fossils with this slide show from StudyJams. Vibrant images are set to music while information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
Mississippi: Pre-Flood Flyover
A slower zoom to the Mississippi river.
Google Sky in the Upper Elementary Classroom
Elementary School students are becoming more technologically savvy. Google Sky/Sky in Google Earth are two programs that can be used to teach elementary students. These programs can be used when discussing History, Math, and Science. This module will explore ways to do that in the upper elementary grades (grades 3-6).
An Arm and A Leg
Students will design and build a prototype of an artificial limb using a simple syringe system as an introduction to bioengineering. Students will determine which substance water (liquid) or air (gas) will make the appendage more efficient.

Some birds use tools made from twigs and various other objects to accomplish tasks. They can use these tools to dig out seeds or insects from a hole or get to something that is out of reach, for example.
Modern proteomes contain putative imprints of ancient shifts in trace metal geochemistry
Because of the rise in atmospheric oxygen 2.3 billion years ago (Gya) and the subsequent changes in oceanic redox state over the last 2.3–1 Gya, trace metal bioavailability in marine environments has changed dramatically. Although theorized to have influenced the biological usage of metals leaving discernable genomic signals, a thorough and quantitative test of this hypothesis has been lacking. Using structural bioinformatics and whole-genome sequences, the Fe-, Zn-, Mn-, and Co-binding metall
