California's State Insect- Dogface Butterfly Life Cycle Documentary 720p HD
The California Dogface (Zerene eurydice, also known as the "Dog's Head Butterly") is California's state butterfly (and state insect, as designated in 1972). Its life cycle is showcased here in great detail, featuring time lapse sequences of never before seen events in the growth and development of this amazing creature. These butterflies are not very well known, and not commonly found in cities and gardens. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real wo
Giant Silkmoth Emerges/Expands Wings Realtime/Timelapse
Here we see the original raw footage in both realtime and timelapse. A male Euryalus SIlkmoth (Hyalophora euryalus) struggles out of his cocoon, and then expands his wings. This moth species typically has a wingspan of about 4-5 inches across from wingtip-to-wingtip, and is sometimes mistaken for a bat or small bird when encountered flying at night. What a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (2:11)

The Un-Epic Battle
Accuracy of measurement in navigation depends very much on the situation. If a sailor’s target is an island 200 km wide, sailing off center by 10 or 20 km is not a major problem. But, if the island were only 1 km wide, it would be missed if off just the smallest bit. Many of the measurements made while navigating involve angles, and a small error in the angle can translate to a much larger error in position when traveling long distances.
Topos, Compasses, and Triangles, Oh My!
In this activity, students will learn how to actually triangulate using a compass, topographical (topo) map and view of outside landmarks. It is best if a field trip to another location away from school is selected. The location should have easily discernable landmarks (like mountains or radio towers) and changes in elevation (to illustrate the topographical features) to enhance the activity. A national park is an ideal location, and visiting a number of parks, especially parks with hiking trail
