European Rulers of the 1st Millennium AD
This is a gapfill quiz. The idea behind the quiz is to help a player acquire an overview of European history through looking at some of the leaders that have shaped Europe's history. The project is far from complete and so far only includes leaders up to the tenth century. Anyone who wishes to edit this quiz is free to do so. The information about the leaders has largely come from wikipedia. All I have done is cut and paste the page then edit it down to an even briefer description of the leader'

When Evil Intrudes (Twenty Years After: The Legacy of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study)
Twenty years ago Peter Buxtun, a public health official working for the United States Public Health Service, complained to a reporter for the Associated Press that he was deeply concerned about the morality of an ongoing study being sponsored by the Public Health Service--a study compiling information about the course and effects of syphilis in human beings based upon medical examinations of poor black men in Macon County, Alabama. The men, or more accurately, those still living, had been coming

Studying the Instrument Shelter
The purpose of this activity is to discover why an instrument shelter is built the way it is. Students construct shelters that have varying properties and place them in the same location or place similar shelters in different locations and compare temperature data taken in each shelter. Students should predict what will happen for each of the different shelter designs or placements and perform the steps of student research. Intended outcomes are that students gain an understanding of GLOBE speci

Who's Eating Who?
Developed for second grade. First the teacher will explain the 5 trophic levels of a food chain to the students using the hand out with the sample food chain (Figure 1). Then once they have learned about trophic levels, autotrophs, and heterotrophs, each student can begin looking through the magazines and cutting out pictures of animals to create their own food chain. Once each student has completed his or her food chain, you can have them share them with the group. Biology In Elementary School
