The Silk Road: An Ancient Road of Adventure
The Silk Road or Silk Route refers to a network of interlinking trade routes across the African-Eurasian landmass that connected East, South, and Western Asia with the Mediterranean and European world, as well as parts of North and East Africa. The land routes were supplemented by sea routes which extended from the Red Sea to East Africa, India, China, and Southeast Asia. China traded silk, spices, teas, and porcelain; while India traded ivory, textiles, precious stones, and pepper; and the Roma

In this unit you will learn about Protein-Energy-Malnutrition (PEM), the most serious nutritional problem among children. The knowledge acquired will enable you to identify children with PEM in your community at the earliest possible stage and be able to manage the situation.
Inside Caitlin's Head
In the 1830s, George Catlin (1796–1872) packed his paintbrushes and trekked through remote Indian country in the Great Plains. Committed to documenting traditional Native culture, he visited more than 140 tribes and painted more than 325 portraits and 200 scenes of American Indian life. Catlin's prolific works, both his art and his writings, illustrate Indian cultures on the precipice of radical change—change that would come with U.S. expansion into tribal territories. In this lesson, stude
This site helps students answer questions about dinosaurs: What makes a dinosaur a dinosaur? Where did they live? What caused their mass extinction? Students can participate in a virtual dinosaur discovery, follow milestones in dinosaur evolution, and see behind-the-scenes slide-shows of the lab environment where vertebrate specimens are prepared for exhibits and research.
Ejs Wave Representations Model
The EJS Wave Representations model displays two representations of a sinusoidal wave on a string. One shows a movie of the wave traveling along a string - you can think of this representation as a sequence of photographs. The second representation is a plot of the displacement as a function of time for two points on the string (you can select which two points to use). Using only these two representations, you can determine the values of many different parameters that describe the wave.
Effective Leadership of Social Enterprise
This course is about the leadership challenges of creating and sustaining high performing nonprofit organizations. The operating environment for nonprofit organizations is changing as dynamically as that of the for-profit sector. A venerable name is no longer sufficient to insure the success, much less the sustainability, of an organization. Yet the theory of how to effectively manage established nonprofits is in many cases just being formulated and tested. This course enables the student to bot
From Page to Stage
Musical theater book writers, lyricists, and composers have long looked to literature for their inspiration and subject material. In this lesson, students will compare and contrast literary works and the musicals they inspired. Utilizing video clips and Web sites, students will compare specific passages from original texts to moments in Broadway musicals on which they were based, and analyze similarities and differences between the two. As a culminating activity, students will try their hand at

Together they needed to redefine the role of the emperor in the constitution so that he remained significant yet not too p
Winter Math Activities
There are many possibilities for winter math data collection activities. Look for opportunities to have students create tally charts, clothespin graphs, Venn diagrams, bar and line graphs to organize data and analyze the results of the data collection. Build on students' natural fascination with penguins by including these math pattern activities. The Koch Snowflake is an example of an iterative drawing as each successive stage begins with the previous stage. The Koch snowflake begins with an eq
The Gallery's American Collection Online
This site features American paintings from the late 1700s-1900s. Included are works by John Copley, Henry Tanner, John Sargent, James Whistler, Gilbert Stuart, and more. Much art of the American colonial period consisted of portraits, as settlers sought to establish their identities in a new world. After the new nation achieved its independence, landscapes and scenes of native flora, fauna, and folk customs began to express its unique qualities and illustrate its untapped resources.
General NOAA Operational Modeling Environment)
GNOME (General NOAA Operational Modeling Environment) is the oil spill trajectory model used by OR&R Emergency Response Division (ERD) responders during an oil spill. ERD trajectory modelers use GNOME in Diagnostic Mode to set up custom scenarios quickly. In Standard Mode, anyone can use GNOME (with a Location File) to: - predict how wind, currents, and other processes might move and spread oil spilled on the water. - learn how predicted oil trajectories are affected by inexactness ("uncertai
