This 1:25 video tells of how the ancient cultures built a city in the hillside using geometry to lay out the grid so that it could be easier to live in during the seasons. This same system is used in many cities today. The video could be used to show the use of geometry in daily life.
This 3:46 long video is a preview of a longer video. It is of value as it shows the problems with bullying, sexual harassment, and credible death threats on the rise, school is becoming less about learning and more about fear. This program examines violence among children and teens of both sexes. Innovative preventive measures yielding impressive results at Bartle Elementary in New Jersey and Lebanon Junior High in New Hampshire are featured. In addition, psychologist Daniel Goleman, author of E

Many insects have special biting and chewing mouthparts to eat plants and leave holes in the leaves. Not all predators eat animals. In fact, any plant or animal that preys on another is a predator.
Guppies have fins, a head end, a tail end, scales, and gills. They live in water and breathe in water using their gills. They use their tail and fins to swim. Their scales are used for protection. The male and female guppies are easy to tell apart because the male is more colorful and has more patterning on his body.
You interpret data from statistics indicating how many people are busy with their work when they go on holiday. In the first exercise you learn to replace percentages by corresponding descriptions, so that you can incorporate the data into a text that is easy to read. At the end of the assignment you incorporate all the data into an article for the staff newsletter.
You practice reading comprehension by means of texts about moving abroad. You will be able to provide a reasoned (oral) argument of the advantages and disadvantages of emigration.
After this chapter you can write a letter about the postponement of a meeting. Whilst carrying out this task you demonstrate the links between events and you also provide sufficient background information. You make a proposal, using the appropriate structures. You apologise for the inconvenience caused.
As a continuation of the theme of potential and kinetic energy, this lesson introduces the concepts of momentum, elastic and inelastic collisions. Many sports and games, such as baseball and ping-pong, illustrate the ideas of momentum and collisions. Students explore these concepts by bouncing assorted balls on different surfaces and calculating the momentum for each ball.
