(View Complete Item Description)

This lesson unit is intended to help teachers assess how well students are able to: Select appropriate mathematical methods to use for an unstructured problem; interpret a problem situation, identifying constraints and variables, and specify assumptions; work with 2- and 3-dimensional shapes to solve a problem involving capacity and surface area; and communicate their reasoning clearly.

Material Type: Assessment, Lesson Plan

Science Activities for Kids .PBS

(View Complete Item Description)

Help your child explore the world of science by engaging in some exciting and fun investigations together! Many science activities for babies and toddlers will principally involve building language. As you describe and name interesting phenomena, your child will be exposed to a rich variety of new words. The first or second-grader is better able to record her experiences and make some predictions based on her extra years of experience. Your preschooler or kindergartner is usually developmentally capable of physically engaging with things on his own, and has gained enough facility with language to begin describing and discussing his experiences.

Australian Aboriginal Art and Storytelling

(View Complete Item Description)

Australian Aboriginal art is one of the oldest continuing art traditions in the world. Much of the most important knowledge of aboriginal society was conveyed through different kinds of storytelling—including narratives that were spoken, performed as dances or songs, and those that were painted. In this lesson students will learn about the Aboriginal storytelling tradition through the spoken word and through visual culture. They will have the opportunity to hear stories of the Dreamtime told by the Aboriginal people, as well as to investigate Aboriginal storytelling in contemporary dot paintings.

4c. Hammurabi's Code: An Eye for an Eye

(View Complete Item Description)

Hammurabi is the best known and most celebrated of all Mesopotamian kings. He ruled the Babylonian Empire from 1792-50 B.C.E. Although he was concerned with keeping order in his kingdom, this was not his only reason for compiling the list of laws. When he began ruling the city-state of Babylon, he had control of no more than 50 square miles of territory. As he conquered other city-states and his empire grew, he saw the need to unify the various groups he controlled.

Virtual Cell Animation Collection

(View Complete Item Description)

The Virtual Cell Animation Collection currently contains 24 animations in 3D and with motion, which cover many molecular and cellular biology (MCB) topics. The Animation Collection is available on a website (http://vcell.ndsu.edu/animations), a YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/ndsuvirtualcell), and as an Apple iOS app. Biology education research indicates that 1) multiple viewing of animations increase learning gains beyond a single viewing either before a lecture, as in a “flipped” classroom, or during a lecture, 2) increased learning gains result from engagement with animations over engagement with static graphics, and 3) students perceive that engagement with animations greatly facilitates their understanding of MCB processes.
