This MinuteEarth video does a great job exploring the history and science behind spoiled foods such cheese, wine, coffe, and breads. It discusses how bacteria help to make our food healthy and good to eat as well as some of the dangers behind certain bacteria such as salmonella.
During a leap year, this video would be great to show your students when the question arises, "Why do we have a leap year?" This video discusses the calendar that was developed by the Romans and the Egyptians. Lunar and Solar calendars are discussed.
This is a great video that shows a general simulation of how the launch, orbiting, and re-entry worked for John Glenn as he beacme the first American to orbit the Earth during the Space Race of the Cold War.
This is a great video that shows Apollo 11, orbiting the Moon, and the Lunar Module descending and landing on the Moon, and Neil Armstrong taking the first step on Moon, and saying, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind!" These events were part of the Space Race during the Cold War.
In this lab students will create a digital table and a graph based on information about the interactions of wolves and deer living on an island. This is a lab that was adapted from the Biology Corner website. I changed to so that I could incorporate the use of technology specifically aimed at spreadsheets via Google Docs. Hopefully when students are done they will be able to realize and visually see how populations of animal communities fluctuate.
