ISS Update - May 23, 2012
The International Space Station video update for May 23, 2012.
Sea Surface Temperature (Interactive)
In this interactive activity produced for Teachers' Domain, using data and visualization from NOAA, learn all about sea surface temperature (SST) and why SST data are highly valuable to ocean and atmospheric scientists. Understand the difference between what actual SST readings can reveal about local weather conditions and how variations from normal—called anomalies—can help scientists identify warming and cooling trends and make predictions about the effects of global climate c
Scientific Processes (Interactive)
This interactive activity adapted from NOVA provides students a way to gain a more accurate understanding of how science is done. Two videos, which feature the work of renowned scientists Percy Julian and Judah Folkman, demonstrate that while scientists may use an orderly approach to learn new information and solve problems, they proceed along different paths in their quests. Instead of referring to a delineated set of steps, the term "scientific process" encompasses the true nature of
This is how to draw and color Chubicorn. He is believed to be half unicorn and half water balloon. He is Shelby's companion in Shelby and the Blooms. The video provides careful instructions and is seven minutes long. Easy to follow.
Soils Around the World (Interactive)
Soils are created through the interaction of climate, vegetation, organisms, topography, and time on the organic and mineral material found on Earth's surface. Because different locations around the world have different climates and topographies and support different kinds of organisms, soil types vary from place to place. Each type possesses certain defining characteristics, including color, texture, and mineral composition. This interactive activity produced for Teachers' Domainfeatures s
Snowflake Physics (Interactive)
In this interactive activity adapted from SnowCrystals.com, learn about snowflake formation. Explore the molecular structure of ice and learn how the typical six-sided shape of snowflakes is due to the arrangement of water molecules in a hexagonal crystal lattice. Discover how snowflakes form and how different conditions affect their growth and morphology.
Some Genes Are Dominant (Interactive)
Using several animated sequences, this interactive activity adapted from the Dolan DNA Learning Center demonstrates the principle of dominance, which is fundamental to modern genetics. By crossing two pea plants, each pure-bred for a given trait like pea color, we learn why only the dominant trait—in this case, yellow pea color—appears in any and all offspring. We also learn why some offspring in subsequent generations exhibit the recessive trait—green—even though this ma
Sequence for Yourself (Interactive)
The Human Genome Project announced in the spring of 2001 that they had sequenced the entire human genome of three billion base pairs. How did they do it? Starting with intact chromosomes, this step-by-step activity shows how the DNA is cut into fragments, cloned, and replicated, and, finally, how the sequence is detected and assembled. From the NOVA: "Cracking the Code of Life" Web site.
Animal Snack Machine (Interactive Game)
Identify the types of food different animals will like best in this interactive online game.
