Cal Ripken, Jr.'s All-Stars (Baseball books for boys, written by a baseball great. I NEED these for my classroom.)
All Stars Wild, Jr S All Stars, Wild Pitch, Robbie Hammond, Jrs Allstar, Reading Level, Cal Ripken, Babes Ruth, Children Fiction
Cal Ripken, Jr.s All Stars Wild Pitch by Cal Ripken is about a young pitcher named Robbie Hammond. Robbie is great at what he does, but there's just a small problem: he can't find the plate! Is there any way he can get control and prove to everyone he's not just the coach's kid? http://bark.cwmars.org/eg/opac/record/3056095?query=Cal%20Ripken%2C%20Jr.%E2%80%99s%20All%20Stars%20Wild%20Pitch;qtype=keyword;fg%3Aformat_filters=6;locg=1
Robbie Hammond is the hardest throwing pitcher in the Babe Ruth League. But what good is all that heat when he cant seem to find the plate? With Robbie struggling, the Orioles are suffering through a nightmare season, still looking for their first win. Robbies teammates are whispering that the only reason hes even pitching is because hes the coachs kid. Theyve even given him a new nickname: Ball Four.

DIY sundial for when we are teaching Ancient Egypt. Ancient Egyptians created sundials to tell time. Place a pencil upright in a ball of clay. Have a student go out every hour to place a stone where the end of the pencil is. Stones can be numbered to show what the hour is. At the end of the day look at the sundial your class has created.

from http://www.stevespanglerscience.com-- this is a great idea for a science experiment for kids. The student uses the power of the reaction of Mentos and Diet Coke to fill six glasses of soda. This would be fun to do in the classroom and have kids make observations and predictions.

making it rain...we already pull out our cloud book to discuss the clouds. We did it, it was super easy. I extended the fun by putting the ice cubes outside in the sun. We took a picture of them and then came out two hours later to see what happens. Helps bring home the point that water changes states based on the sun.

What a great list for young readers (boys) of around the 6-15 year mark. (Give or take) Trev's read quite a few of these, but there are a handful that we haven't heard of that I must soon order and add to our list of reads. Great list, also read the comments under the list because some other parents added some great ones that were not on the list of 40.

Every kid has a little mad scientist hiding inside of them. Here are 10 crazy concoctions you can whip up at home to satisfy their need to explore and create.
Food Colors, Elephant Toothpaste, For Kids, Science Projects, Science Experiments, Food Coloring, Hydrogen Peroxide, Mad Scientists, Baking Soda
Lots of great, easy science projects on this site. The one pictured is called "elephant toothpaste," and requires only a small water or soda bottle, a funnel, hydrogen peroxide, a little dish soap, food coloring, and a packet of yeast. So cool! And the name alone will have kids talking about it for days. It is for the kiddos, but I can't wait to try it :)
MAD SCIENTIST Elephant Toothpaste. Mix desperately: 2 tablespoons of water w 1 tsp Yeast. Add 1/2 cup 6% or higher of hydrogen peroxide. Then pour in your yeast mixture. Quicly add food color drops and squirt of fish soap for bubbles and color. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) naturally breaks down into water and oxygen. It is stored in opaque containers to help slow down this process. Catalase (an enzyme in all living things, including yeast) speeds up the reaction. Dish soap catches the ox
Science Experiment: Elephant Toothpaste 1. Set a soda pop bottle in the middle of a pan to catch the toothpaste. 2. Mix these in a separate container and swirl together for a minute. The yeast will catalyze (or speed up) the reaction. Woo hoo! ** 2 Tablespoons warm water ** 1 teaspoon yeast 3. Mix these in your soda pop bottle: ** 1/2 cup 6% hydrogen peroxide. It is important to use at least 6%. You can use 8% or more (available on Amazon), or you can Salon Care Professional Stabilized Formula. 20 Volume Clear Developer from Sally Beauty Supply works fine too. 3% from the grocery store will NOT work as well. :) ** 4-5 drops food coloring ** squirt of dish soap 4. Pour the yeast mixture into the soda pop bottle...and be amazed! If you're working with older kids, you may be interested in how it works: The reaction is summarized by this formula: 2 H2O2 --> 2 H2O + 02. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) naturally breaks down into water and oxygen. It is stored in opaque containers to help slow down this process. Catalase (an enzyme in all living things, including yeast) speeds up the reaction. Dish soap catches the oxygen and makes bigger bubbles and the food coloring makes it look cool. The foam and bottle feel warm because the reaction is exothermic--it releases energy as heat.

All perforations are taped. All edges of 20 x 10 section are taped, but leave small hole in one corner for hose. Don't let anyone walk on while it's filling. It is like a big water bed. Works best on flat ground.
