Is anyone interested in developing a unit on migratory birds? There are lots of good lessons and other resources to access online. And there are lots of ways students can get involved in migratory-bird conservation, no matter where you live.

Please contact Mary Ball directly.

Physical Science - 8th grade

I am trying to design this as a multiple objective long range process. My thoughts are to create different modules, the first being a discussion of what is oil. In this module, I want to have them "get" physical and chemical properties of matter, basic, basic periodic table (through discussing oil as a hydrocarbon), elements, compounds, and mixtures. My plan is to create an "oil", push that oil upward through sand on the ocean bottom, and then find the constituent parts. For activities, they will do the oil spill cleanup and a density segment.

I started thinking of this earlier this summer and although it sounds pretty planned out, it really isn't that far. I would love to have collaborators with ideas and am very open to modifications.

Please contact denise Oppenhagen directly.
