Slowing the Flow
In this hands-on OLogy activity, kids learn how the mammalian diving reflex works to help both land and sea mammals survive in cold water.

The illustrated, step-by-step directions show kids how to test the effect cold water has on their circulation by measuring their pulse before and after they plunge their faces into icy water. It includes a fast fact about how the mammalian

Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interviewer identifies the student's ideas about the interior of the earth being made up of hot magma by asking her to draw a picture. When the student mentions volcanoes, the interviewer probes further to ask her to explain what a volcano is.
