Allies and Aliens
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

In the learning module Allies and Aliens students assume the role of agents from planet Earth who must assess varying degrees of prejudice and misinformation as they visit Web sites from other planets. Because most kids don't think to look for bias or false information online and subtle forms of racism may be difficult to recognize, Allies and Aliens uses the pretense of an evaluation mission to keep players from guessing its true purpose right away. The mission is divided into two parts. On Day One, students encounter information with little direction. On Day Two, the module's purpose becomes apparent. Allies and Aliens aims to teach students the basics about bias, stereotyping, misinformation and propaganda techniques, on the Internet and in other media. It also helps students to understand the difference between fact and opinion, and the importance of authenticating online information. The challenges of this module will ultimately sharpen students' research skills as well as their critical thinking skills. The experience will teach them to recognize viewpoint, bias, and manipulation -- online and off.

Antiobiotic Resistance
Conditions of Use:

In the explorable explanation players can learn how antibiotic resistance happens. They can interact with bacteria in this simulation to learn how when living things reproduce, there is a small amount of variance in their offspring. This allows organisms to respond to changes in their environment over several generations. Applied to bacteria, when they treated with antibiotics, only the strongest survive and multiply, creating an increasing resilient population.

Area Maze
Rating

The Menseki Meiro (Area Maze) is a great OER for working on transferring dimensions of rectangles and composite shapes. The problems increase in difficulty as students complete each puzzle in sequence. Incorrect answers do not show solutions, so students can rework the problem or move on to the next one. Teachers will want to emphasize that the images are not drawn proportionally (to scale) and that answers will be whole numbers. All mazes can be solved without using decimals or fractions. This does NOT mean that all box sides and areas must be whole numbers.

Use this as additional practice with understanding the relationship of dimensions and area of rectangles. Students should have strong understanding of decomposing and composing side lengths and multiplication of length and width to produce a specific area.
