Assessment for Learning. Spread cups on table and have students race to correctly order, smallest to biggest. Great visual way to show levels of organization. This would also work for DKPCOFGS, sorting individual body systems parts, even the sequence of mitosis and meiosis, students could make their own sets and doodle diagrams on the cups. Love this idea!!

Do you wish your students had access to a microscope but the price is holding you back?  Check out the Foldscope, the portable microscope you assemble yourself.    We live side by side with microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and algae of which we remain unaware. Having access to a quality microscope changes that. This is why I was elated to find out about the Foldscope. #microscope #homeschool #co-op #scienceathome

The Nitrogen Cycle is close to the carbon cycle but slightly different for instance, 78% of our atmosphere is nitrogen and if less is becoming AIR and more carbon, then nitrogen fixation, the turning from useless nitrogen in the air into oxygen so we can actually use it.

You know that plants absorb water from their roots, but how does that water get to the rest of the plant? And how does the sugar made in the leaves during photosynthesis get transported to all of the plant tissues? Through the vascular system! Learn more about this incredible system and investigate it for yourself with easy, hands-on activities!

In this activity students watch a video that reviews scientific variables. As students watch the video, it prompts them to pause and watch short Mythbusters video clips to practice identifying all the variables in their experiments. The lesson could be easily posted to students for distance learning.
