    The Periodic Table! Explore important concepts such as Ionization Energy, Density, Atomic Radius, Electronegativity, Boiling Point, Melting Point, and Specific Heat for many different elements on Tuva. Wonderful dataset to explore the relationship between the atomic number and these important element properties. Enjoy!

    Hey Everyone. Does anyone have a free online tool that can download youtube videos. I'd like for my students to take any youtube video and download it onto their computer for a video editing project. Thanks!
    • Mr. D'Abreu - To download a YouTube video for use ,type “ss” in front of the “Y” in YouTube. For example, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OBlgSz8sSM would become http://www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=_OBlgSz8sSM . Select file type and download.

      • Karen Kim - Here are a couple websites which will convert Youtube files, and allow you to select the file size and type for download without downloading software (or spyware) onto your computer. Let me know if you have trouble navigating or figuring out how to use the sites.

      • Mrs. Kapaun - Looking for anyone who uses the Amazing Race in their geography classroom. We are just finishing up season 16 and I am wanting to do a end of the show project. Any ideas? We have done a project for each place they have gone. I plan on having them do their own amazing race for the remainder of the year. Any ideas are appreciated. Thank you!

    • Mrs. Wright - You can use Google Maps to have them drop "pins" on the location for their race--you can add images, written paragraphs/clues, links, etc. to the pins also. Just be sure they save as they go--my students had trouble remembering!

    How did veteran teacher Mike Gwaltney guide students to becoming citizens?

    Our friends at Edutopia share a new article by our National Faculty member Suzie Boss who writes about how Mike Gwaltney retooled our LegiQuest curriculum (LINK: http://bit.ly/1Ha728W) into a real-world unit where his students were actively engaged in their learning as they took on a hot button political issue. Read Suzie's article to learn more about the project and share this with a teacher.

    What do California Native People and The North Face have in common?

    Check out Design Wars, a project in which our National Faculty member and Katherine Smith School teacher Kevin Armstrong and his 4th grade team ask students to design a bag that meets specific client needs. Students explore the concept of meeting specific needs with natural resources by learning about California Native People. When pitching their designs they explain design and material choices, as well as how they used feedback from the client and expert equipment designers from The North Face. Learn more about the project and share it with a teacher.

    Want more? Join us for a live Google+ Hangout On Air next Tuesday, March 24th, at 12:00 pm pt/3:00 pm et, when Kevin Armstrong will discuss his project, Design Wars. Let us know if you are going to watch: http://bit.ly/1GRFGEo.
