Length: 0 Copyright: 2006

Set of five large 7-inch balls and five smaller 3-inch balls. A large soft colored ball holds a recessed dimple in which another smaller ball in a contrasting color sits. Babal looks like one ball but is actually two. When the two are fitted together, Babal works just like any other ball. It's great for catching and rolling. When the smaller ball is removed, however, the large ball offers up a few unexpected benefits. Set on its empty dimple, it becomes stationary and stackable, making tall towers possible. Made of polyurethane form. For ages 3-6.

Bee-Bot and Kinderlogo are both great learning tools for students in kindergarten through third grade. The kit has one Bee-Bot which is a hands-on robot shaped and colored like a bee. It can be used to reinforce counting, estimation, sequencing, and critical thinking skills. Students program it by using the direction arrows on its top. Programs can be as simple as moving forward for counting to maneuvering through simple to complex obstacle courses. The kit also comes with Kinderlogo, a software that offers a unique way for young learners to use the computer. Your students explore freely, moving a "turtle" around the screen using letter commands. They experience a mathematical environment first-hand, making discoveries that will stay with them. Kinderlogo converts these commands that younger learners find difficult to type into single keystrokes. They press F to make the turtle go forward, R to make it turn to the right, and L to make it turn to the left. They soon want to know how to start a New picture. Within minutes, students are exploring to see what the turtle can do and what happens when it reaches the edge of the screen. They explore patterns and create original designs. The possibilities are endless and support creativity and collaboration. Kit is intended for students in grades K-3.

KM 12939KM 12939 Code Hopper-Computer Coding Fun
Grade Lvl: K Author:
Length: 0 Copyright: 2017

Introduction to computer coding in a hop, skip and a jump! Your young learner will hop through a sequence he or she creates after placing the bright foam mats one by one. Guide your child through the logic of programming while keeping his or her body busy and active. Our bright foam mats link together to create a flowchart of fun and stimulate the logic of computer coding. This fun interactive activity will build a foundation for future STEM success while also building big muscle groups, improving balance and coordination! Includes 12 Two-sided Mats and a Parent Guide. Although very simple to play, Code Hopper teaches the advanced concept of algorithmic thinking. This programming fundamental has three basic elements: SEQUENCING (DO this) Code Hopper’s Action mats tell your child what to do. When your child puts them in a sequence, he or she creates the “program”. CONDITIONALS (IF-THEN) Yes and No mats extend the programming to include decision making. The Yes and No mats “branch” off, so the path your child will take may change based on the conditions. REPETITION (REPEAT) The third concept of programming and algorithmic thinking is repetition. Computers are able to repeat things thousands of times with the same results- something humans are usually less successful at because eventually a mistake is made. In programming you can repeat a single action or an entire sequence. This active game keeps bodies busy while developing their young minds!

Build a DNA molecule using small plastic colored tubes and anchor pieces, replicate it, and use half of the "ladder" to construct messenger RNA (mRNA). Nucleotides of RNA are first produced following step-by-step directions. Transcription in the nucleus, and the movement of the mRNA molecule, is simulated by matching mRNA codons to the transfer RNA (tRNA) and its anti-codons. The amino acids then bond to form a protein molecule. Discover how the information stored in the DNA is expressed as a finished protein by disconnecting the protein chain from the tRNA. The tRNAs from the mRNA show their availability to continue. Contents: instruction manual, 11 sets of color-coded parts, and 11 student worksheets and guides. Lab Aid No. 72. Fisher S19376.

Grade Lvl: T Author:
Length: 0 Copyright: 2011

This kit has samples from the Engineering is Elementary curriculum for grades K-6. Includes the teacher guide and storybook for each of the following units: An Alarming Idea: Designing Alarm Circuits - How do electrical circuits work? The lessons in this unit will get students thinking like electrical engineers, starting with the storybook A Reminder for Emily, about a girl living in the Australian outback who needs an alarm to remind her when it’s time for chores around the ranch. The hands-on activities in this unit reinforce science concepts including conductors and insulators, schematic diagrams, and and circuits. For the final engineering design challenge, students plan, create, and improve their own alarm circuit. The Best of Bugs:Designing Hand Pollinators - Insects pollinate many kinds of plants. What if the right insects aren’t around to do the work? The storybook Mariana Becomes a Butterfly shows how one girl solves a pollination problem. In this unit, students become agricultural engineers. They’ll apply their knowledge of insects, insect life cycles, pollination, and natural systems as they test a variety of materials, then engineer their own technologies for pollinating plants by hand. Thinking Inside the Box: Designing Plant Packages - Just look at the shelves in any store: almost everything you buy comes in a package that keeps it fresh or safe from damage, or gives information for consumers. This unit introduces students to the field of package engineering. The storybook A Gift from Fadil sets the scene by introducing two children in Jordan who want to give their older sister a plant from their garden as a wedding gift. Students will use their knowledge of plants, their problem-solving skills, and their creativity to design a package that can keep a plant alive and healthy for several days. Now You're Cooking: Designing Solar Ovens - In Botswana, where firewood for cooking fuel is in short supply, people are turning to solar-powered cookers as an alternative. The storybook Lerato Cooks Up a Plan introduces the idea of using the sun as a renewable energy source and sets a framework for this unit’s activities. Students are introduced to the concepts of thermal insulators and thermal conductors, then they test different materials to find the best insulators. They consider the life cycle and environmental impacts of each insulator, then design and test their solar ovens and do some solar cooking! A Sticky Situation: Designing Walls - Wood, stone, metal, plastic . . . if you want to build something, materials matter! Different materials have different properties: they may be more useful for one purpose and less useful for another. This unit explores earth materials—including clay, sand, and soil—as they’re used in mortar to build a stone wall. The storybook Yi Min’s Great Wall sets the scene; Yi Min uses her knowledge of earth materials to design a rabbit-proof wall to protect the school vegetable garden. Drawing on their knowledge of the properties of earth materials, students will plan, build, test, and improve walls of their own. Water, Water Everywhere: Designing Water Filters - The water you drink is clean and safe thanks to the environmental engineers who design and manage our water supply and water treatment systems. In this unit, the storybook Saving Salila’s Turtle introduces students to the problem of water pollution—and to some solutions. Students will investigate the properties of filter materials, apply their knowledge of water, and think like environmental engineers as they plan, construct, test and improve their own water filters.

Grade Lvl: T Author: Farland-Smith, Donna / Thomas, Julie
Length: 375 Copyright: 2018

It's never too early to put a human face on science and engineering! Research shows that a child's ideas about how scientists and engineers look and what they do start to form in the earliest grades. Teachers can help students understand that everyone can do science by introducing inquiry activities in the primary grades. Eureka, Again! K 2 Science Activities and Stories evokes Archimedes's famous cry. That's because it helps children make discoveries of their own about who scientists and engineers are and what they do. Eureka, Again! is appealing because lessons are grounded in 27 children's trade books. Some of the biographies feature famous individuals, such as Rachel Carson and George Washington Carver. Others are not as well known, such as paleontologist Mary Anning and recycler Isatou Ceesay. All of their stories will help students see scientists and engineers not as stereotypes in lab coats but as real people whose success grows out of their life experiences and character traits. They may even inspire children to consider STEM-related careers. Each chapter is designed to do the following: Focus on science and engineering practices. These include asking questions and defining problems, planning and carrying out investigations, and analyzing and interpreting data. Bring the processes to life through the trade books and related lessons. You'll introduce a skill-building, inquiry-based investigation while highlighting the scientists and engineers work and the character traits that helped each succeed. You can teach one lesson or all three from each chapter--whatever will enrich your curriculum the most. Be easy to use. In addition to supporting the Next Generation Science Standards, each chapter uses a learning-cycle format and begins with a personal story from the authors that provides valuable insights into teaching this exciting grade range. Professional companion book: Eureka! Grade 3-5 (B 97098).

The Industrial Revolution for Kids introduces a time of monumental change in a “revolutionary” way. Discusses the new technologies and new forms of communication and transportation that impacted American life—through the people who invented them and the people who built, operated, and used them. In addition to wealthy industrialists such as John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie and ingenious inventors such as Eli Whitney and Alexander Graham Bell, covers everyday workers, activists, and kids. The late 19th and early 20th centuries come to life through the eyes of hardworking Chinese immigrants who built the Transcontinental Railroad; activist Isaac Myers, an African American ship caulker who became a successful businessman and labor union organizer; toiling housewife Hannah Montague, who revolutionized the clothing industry with her popular detachable collars and cuffs; and many others who help tell the human stories of the Industrial Revolution. Twenty-one hands-on activities invite young history buffs to experience life and understand the changing technologies of this era. Iowa author. Lexile 930 IL 4-8.
