How to Make Floating Bubbles
VideoJug user KipKay shows you how to make bubbles float. This is a
great science project that kids will love, so learn how to make
All you need to make amazing floating bubbles is some of kid’s magic
soap bubbles and some dry ice in a large container. Dry ice is basically
carbon dioxide in
a solid form - it’s frozen at minus 109 degrees. It doesn’t melt; it
turns from a solid right to a gas, in this case carbon dioxide gas.

The Economy during the US Civil War
This video is accompanied by text. "The Civil War affected northern and southern economies differently. When the war began, the north, with its large factories and well-established companies, generated a great deal of the country’s business. After the first volleys of battle, the north experienced a slight depression due to the uncertainty of the war and the loss of southern business associations. However, after the initial shock passed, the northern economy flourished. The federal government
Assessment In Math and Science - What's the Point?
'A video workshop for K-12 teachers; 8 ninety-minute video programs.
'"Will this be on the test?" "Is this going to count?" How often do students ask these questions? This workshop examines current assessment issues and strategies in K-12 math and science classrooms.
Through video segments of real classrooms interspersed with lively discussions of practicing teachers and content experts, see how teachers deal with common issues and discover ways to use assessment to improve
Skip Counting by 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's and 10's
Students will use a hundreds chart to skip count by 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's and 10's. A 100s chart is on the slide. The narrator skip counts by 2s. The numbers are highlighted are she skip counts. Students are asked to skip count on their own using the pattern. There is a pause in the narration and the pattern is shown. Numbers follow a pattern when counting by ones but also when skip counting. User clicks through the 3 slides.

A Standards Overview 9-12
This program shows a variety of complex topics from high school lessons, illustrating how the NCSS standards and themes can be integrated into teaching in grades 9–12. Teachers will be able to see how the curriculum can be expanded to address complex issues and content in meaningful ways and become much more sophisticated in exploring all areas of social studies.
Assessment in Math and Science - Will This Be on the Test?
Workshop 1. Will This Be on the Test?'; Knowing vs. Understanding
'Understanding is more than simply knowing. This workshop sets the stage for the entire series by examining what it means to understand, and explores how teachers can design a set of performance tasks to fairly and accurately assess the levels of understanding that their students have or have not achieved. Content Guide: K. Michael Hibbard.'
Assessment in Math and Science - What'd I Get?: Scoring Tools
Workshop 2. What'd I Get?: Scoring Tools (90 min.)
'Well-designed performance tasks give teachers the information necessary to evaluate the depth of students' understanding — but how can teachers determine quality work? This workshop demonstrates how teachers can construct assessment tools for benchmarks of student understanding. The role of students in the construction of scoring tools and the process of assessment will be a primary focus. Content Guide: K. Michael Hibbard.'
Assessment in Math and Science - Is This Going to Count?
Workshop 3. Is This Going To Count?; Embedded Assessment (90 min.)
'Assessment does not compete for valuable teaching time; it is teaching time. This workshop shows how embedding assessment into everyday curriculum turns performance tasks into learning activities. Well-designed assessment allows teachers to shape subsequent instruction according to what their students have and have not understood. Content Guide: Monica Neagoy.'
Assessment in Math and Science-I Didn't Know This Was an English Class!
Workshop 4. I Didn't Know This Was an English Class!; Connections Across the Disciplines (90 min.)
'One measure of students' depth of understanding is the connections they can make across disciplines. This workshop explores how teachers can encourage these connections by designing performance tasks that build on other disciplines. Content Guide: Monica Neagoy.'
Assessment in Science and Math-You WILL be Tested on This!
Workshop 5. You WILL Be Tested on This!: Standardized Testing (90 min.)
'Teachers are under pressure to get their students to perform well on state and national tests. Sometimes, however, it seems that too much attention is paid to these tests.
