Developed for third grade. In participating in this activity, students will realize that seeds can sprout and grow without being immersed in soil. After looking at the inside of a lima bean and learning about the different parts of the seed, the students will grow their own little garden of mini-mustard plants in any shape they desire, using a sponge as the base. The kids will be able to care for the seeds soon after they sprout. They will be able to "taste" their mustard plants and even use the
This can be a simple graphing activity. You could also choose to use the data for linear regression. Contribute your own data. Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas on this page have been found, refined, and developed by students in a college-level course on the teaching of biology at the elementary level. Unless otherwise noted, the lesson plans have been tried at least once by students from our partner schools. This wiki has been establ
21W.784 Becoming Digital: Writing about Media Change (MIT)
"Becoming Digital" traces the change in practice, theory and possibility as mechanical and chemical media are augmented or supplanted by digital media. These changes will be grounded in a semester length study of "reports from the front." These reports, found and introduced by students throughout the semester, are the material produced by and about soldiers and civilians on the battlefield from the introduction of wet photography during the Crimean and Civil Wars to contempor

Ice cream in a Bag!
Developed for first grade. Students will make ice cream from scratch while focusing on the Food Guide Pyramid and what constitutes healthy and unhealthy food choices. Also, in doing this experiment states of matter - solids, liquids, and gases will be covered. While making the ice cream, you can ask the students what they expect to happen. Do they expect the ice cream to turn into a solid? Does it begin as a liquid? Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The
Developed for third and fourth grade. In this activity students will be able to explore the structure of a cell by building their own models with Jell-o and candy. Students will learn the different parts of the cell and their functions. We will also discuss the importance of cells in the human body. Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas on this page have been found, refined, and developed by students in a college-level course on the teach

M&A Is Back -- But This Time, It's Different
If the past month is any indicator, acquisitions are not only thawing but heating up. In October, Comcast made a bid to merge its operations with NBC Universal to create a cable programming giant. In early November, Kraft Foods announced a $16.5 billion bid for U.K.-based chocolate maker Cadbury -- also being sought by confectioners Hershey and Ferrero. The activity spans several sectors, including technology, with Hewlett Packard's agreement to purchase 3Com for $2.7 billion, and Google's $750

The global campus-ICT and the future of universities
This paper analyses the changes which the ICT causes on a global scale. The globalization of higher education triggered by e-Learning, the emergence of e-infrastructure for e-science, the Open Educational Resources movement, e-libraries and the tendency of building global educational alliances are analysed as well. Special emphasis is put on several wellknown university models, e.g. Research University, Open University and Entrepreneurial University, as well as on some emerging university models
Patricia Johnston Sings "I See the Sun"
This beautifully done video sings about the sun, moon, stars, ...Some of the lyrics include "I see the sun-a big round sun. I see the moon-a big round moon. I see the stars-the little, little stars---smiling just for me". These videos by Patricia Johnston were designed for young French children to begin to learn English. This is a great teaching resource for early childhood learners and/or special education students and would work well in conjunction with a unit on Earth and to help build backgr
Learning aware environement: a Laboratorium of epidemiological studies
One challenge of the Laboratorium is to have the capacity to recognize and capture relevant events from observing the human activity, the ability to understand the learning needs and then to provide the adequate feedback in whatever form. Another challenge is the mapping of inaccessible phenomena into the sensible and temporal space of the classroom. Our design combines gaming situations and ambient technologies in the context of learning bio-statistics. This paper presents a method and a formal
USGS Biological Resources: National Activities

Bibliographic data and notes will be taken using Memo Pad, information will be organized in PiCo Map, reports presented through Palm eBook format, and a follow-up quiz for classmates will be developed in Quizzler. Within the project, students will learn the fundamental principles involved in completing a research project. This is designed as an integrated unit to be taught by the classroom teacher and media speciali
Science: from the lab to Second Life and across the world
We talk to Sue Stocklmayer from the Australian National University about the joys and pitfalls of international science communication; and to Rough Science's Dr Jonathan Hare about his research into Buckmeinsterfullerene. We also return to the SCHOME project (from Programme 5) and meet the students involved - in the real world! The interviews are recorded by OU staff and the programme is hosted by Dr Mike Bullivant, also from the OU/BBC television series Rough Science.
