EARTH SCIENTIST’S PERIODIC TABLE OF THE ELEMENTS AND THEIR IONS, L. Bruce Railsback, University of Georgia, (suggested by Heather Rencyk, Milford High School,Milford, NH)
This table is different from the traditional periodic table in that it arranges ions in a pattern that demonstrates their natural occurrences in nature. There are two main ways in which this table differs from the traditional one. First, the ions are found in rows by charge. Second, some elements appear multiple times as some of them do have multiple charges in nature. For more information, study the online version, for it contains pop-ups that explain the applications as they pertain to earth science. Another good place to start is the legend at the top center of the chart. The applications are great, including an inset that illustrates mineral properties that follow the similar trends as those in the main part of the table.

INFOMAGNET, Infomagnet,(suggested by Matthew Leigh,InfoMagnet)
The site is a 3-dimensional interactive globe that works in your browser. The Earth can be rotated and inspected; graphical displays of data can be changed to see information in the most appropriate form. Viewing world data in context, projected onto the Earth's surface, provides useful graphics for presentations and is a valuable learning aid. At present the emphasis is on economic and development data including health, infrastructure, energy, pollution, poverty and military - from 1960 to present day. [NOTE: Free access to only a small selection of global data available. Must pay to access a complete standard set of data. – Phyllis ]

Interactive Demonstrations are physical or conceptual models that replicate part of a system of interest. Often they are constructed out of material or objects that are familiar to students in their everyday lives. It's always fun for students to see something familiar to them used in an unique and unexpected way. This Starting Point module describes the use of demonstrations and provides a collection of examples of demonstrations that can be done in class. Example: Phases of the Moon This exercise has students use a simple physical model of the Earth, sun, and moon to understand why the moon changes phases from the perspective of Earthly observers.

THE CLIMATE CHANGE COLLECTION, SERC, (suggested by Mark S. McCaffrey, CIRES Education & Outreach University of Colorado)
The site offers a suite of science education web resources developed primarily for middle school science teachers and their students relating to the causes and effects of natural climate variations as well as human impacts on the climate system. Reviewed by a team of science teachers, climate scientists and learning experts for accuracy, currency and effectiveness, the collection includes background materials, high-quality portal sites, classroom activities, and carbon cycle calculators. Each resource has a summary review which links to the individual "scorecards" written by the reviewers.

TEACHING BOXES, DLESE, (suggested by Holly Devaul, DLESE)
A Teaching Box is an online assembly of interrelated learning concepts, digital resources, and cohesive narration that helps bridge the gap between individual resources and understanding. Instructors and students can pick a topic, view the concepts that build an understanding of that topic, explore online resources that support learning of those concepts, and benefit from the narration (the glue) that weaves concepts, activities, and background information together into a complete teaching/learning story. Students are excited to discover and engage their curiosity about science. DLESE Teaching Boxes are now available on-line: Evidence for Plate Tectonics, Essentials of Weather, Seasonal Upwelling, Changing Sea Level, and Earthquakes. Additional Teaching Boxes are currently under development.

Songs That Teach Math, Advanced Math, and Every Subject!

Recommended Website:
Songs That Teach
[NOTE: Other pages from previously posted. - Phyllis ]

It's the new 2005-2006 Homeschool Year! One of the easiest ways to learn
math facts is to set them to music. At today's website you will find an
array of songs that teach math facts and concepts including Addition,
Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Advanced Math, Algebra, and Geometry.
When you get to the site you will see a menu with a list of various math
strands and song titles beneath each one. Click on the song title that
interests you, and a new page opens that displays the lyrics as well as a
link that you can click to hear a sample of the song. Multiple grade levels
are covered here with songs that include elementary number counting songs,
multiplication facts set to rap music, a song about Roman numerals, and even
the "Dance of the Pythagoreans." All of the songs are performed by the
artists who wrote them, and after hearing a free sample of the song that
includes a verse and chorus, you can print out the lyrics and easily learn
it. Or, you can purchase the CD that contains the song from the store at
this website.

We've featured the Songs That Teach website previously at ClickSchooling.
However, they have added a lot of new material making it worth another
visit. Not only will you find math songs here, but you will see a menu on
the left of your screen that includes songs that teach language arts,
phonics, grammar, spelling, reading and writing strategies, science, social
studies, fine arts, character education, classic literature, foreign
languages and there are even songs for those with special needs.

Don't forget to check out the "References" section where you can read the
latest research on how music promotes learning -- oh, and be sure to visit
"Teaching Tips" that include strategies and ideas for lesson plans from
educators and songwriters that incorporate music in teaching.

I met Sandra Effinger while standing in line for a lunch buffet

want to recommend it to secondary teachers, especially those who
teach AP. It's a gold mine.

Hi! It's Wednesday, September 21, 2005 and time for Language Arts at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
Myths, Legends and Fables
[NOTE: This page and other pages from
previously posted. – Phyllis ]

Myths, legends and fables are fascinating stories that kids really enjoy reading or hearing. But, which is which? According to today's website (that was developed by teachers at a primary school in the United Kingdom):

*One is a traditional story based on truth.
*One is a traditional story of gods or heroes that tries to explain why people or things are the way they are.
*One is a short story that has been written to provide a message.

Find out which is which at today's website. Then, click on the menu icons to read:

Myths -- A selection of 7 different Myths from Greece, Africa, Central America, Japan, and India. When you click on any one, you may be presented with some story boards or activity suggestions. Look for the "Start" button to read the myths.

Traditional Stories -- A selection of 4 stories - all based on traditional stories or nursery rhymes. This section uses a good bit of creative license to embellish and develop the new stories based on nursery rhymes. Be ready for some silliness. However, this is a great way to demonstrate how you can take an idea from someone else and make up a story and write about it. :) As with the "Myths" section, you will be presented with a preface containing activity ideas to help understand the stories or to further learning.

Fables - A selection of 5 fables from India, Japan and Ancient Greece. Click on any title and a new page opens with activity ideas to further learning. Then click the picture or the start button to read the fable.

The stories and activities at this site are geared for early elementary school students, but many will appeal to your whole family. If you enjoy this small section of the site that we've featured today, be sure to click on the other icons that include "EuroTales," "Planetoz Kids," and "Kids Zone" that lead to more stories and myths.

Wait! There's more! Click on the "Home" button at this site to see an array of Language Arts activities archived at this site.

Circusweb: Circuses Present and Past

Many of us have fond memories of our parents taking us to the circus (or
childhood fantasies of running away with it)! This cool site takes you on
a trip from the history and evolution of the circus to its modern-day role
in society.

CircusWeb.Com unveils the roots of the circus and its eccentric culture,
from the early days of Pompey's Rome to elegant mastery of today's Cirque
De Soleil. There is also information and images on old circus characters,
animals, and 'freaks', as well as a section on circus "Lore". Enjoy the show!!

From the site:
“Every child remembers their first trip to the circus. Perhaps it's been awhile, or perhaps you've simply never had the opportunity to attend a true 3-ring circus under the big top. In either case, a truly magical experience awaits you.” Includes Circus Superstitions and Terms.


Kiddie Records Weekly

Kiddie Records Weekly presents classics from "The Golden Age" of children's
records. Most of these great records were made between the mid-1940's to
the early 1950's.

The aim of the site is to give parents the opportunity to share these
wonderful children's albums of the past with their kids. Every week the
site is updated with a new record, including such classics as "Puss in
Boots", "The Happy Prince", and "Tubby the Tuba".

How Computers Worked in the '70s

In the modern world of Wi-Fi and microcomputers, it is easy to forget the
humble roots of computers. "How it Works..The Computer", originally
published in 1971, is a fun reminder of computer technology's roots.

The site is effectively a page-by-page scan of the original book, as well
as copy of the 1979 Revised Edition by Ladybird Books. Click on each page

Hi! It's Thursday, September 8, 2005 and time for Social Sciences atClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
Computer History Museum
[NOTE: Previously posted. - Phyllis ]

List member Cecille Hansen recommended today's website that documents the
fascinating history of computers. She wrote, "It gives kids a glimpse of the
"dark ages" before everyone had a PC at work and at home." The website is a
companion to the actual Computer History Museum located in the city of
Mountain View, California in the heart of "Silicon Valley" . The museum's
purpose is to preserve the history of the computing revolution and its
impact on the human experience.

When you get to the website you will see an introduction to the "Online
Exhibitions" along with a menu of choices that include:

*Visible Storage -- See the remarkable ways in which computer data has been
entered, stored and retrieved -- from punch cards to magnetic disks and

*Timeline -- Explore the history of computing from 1945 to 1990. Click on
any year and a new page opens with illustrated descriptions of historic
innovations in hardware and software technology, commercial applications,
and artificial intelligence. It even includes biographical sketches of the
pioneers responsible for the advances.

*Internet History -- This is worth the trip to the site alone as it explains
the origin of the Internet from AT&T's 1964 vision of the "picturephone" as
the answer to future worldwide communications to the morphing of the U.S.
Department of Defense's ARPANET into today's Internet.

*Microprocessors, 1971-1996 -- An interactive online exhibit that chronicles
the development of the microprocessor.

*Curator's Choice -- Take a look at 10 of the Museum's "favorite" artifacts
from the permanent collection including the famous IBM "THINK" sign to the
first Apple computer designed by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs.

*This Day In History -- Something interesting in computer history took place
on almost every day of the calendar year (except today, September 8th). :)

*Hall of Fellows -- The biographies of men and women who have contributed to
the development of computing.

Kids sometimes complain about studying history because they don't see the
relevance of learning about something that happened a long time ago to
people who are long dead and buried. Today's website may remedy that
situation as it involves a lot of recent history that may be far more
meaningful to your students.

Welcome to!

As a service to our colleagues in the library community, we are now offering all of our colorized clip art graphics free!

Due to the overwhelming response to our free clip art offer, we are limiting the number of graphics we supply to one image per person per month. We are a small company and we have a limited amount of time and resources for providing this free service-- we never imagined it would be so popular. We hope you understand.

You can review the entire color image collection by browsing our catalog sheets. There are 11 sheets of graphics which can be viewed online or printed out for future reference. When you select a particular image, make a note of the image title and send us an e-mail requesting the graphic. We will send you an EPS file, suitable for importing or placing into most of the popular editing and design software programs used today.

Although we are offering the graphics free, the copyrighted images are still the property of Chris Olson & Associates. By accepting the free graphic, you are bound by the agreement outlines in the usage guidelines.

LexisNexis AlaCarte!
Search the archive for free

By Jonathan Dube

LexisNexis has long been one of the best research tools for journalists,
enabling reporters to instantly search billions of documents from tens of
thousands of sources, from newspapers and trade journals to public

Today, LexisNexis is launching a new news search service, LexisNexis
AlaCarte!, that will make it easy for anyone to search for free and
retrieve content for small fees on an as-needed basis. This pay-as-you-go
option is perfect for people who don't have a need for -- or can't
afford -- the flat-rate LexisNexis plans.

LexisNexis AlaCarte! ( )
provides users access to more than 3.8 billion documents from over 20,000
sources of news, public records, and government information, including top
newspapers, magazines, and transcripts, company and industry reports, deed
records, liens, zip demographics, state and federal legislation, and
intellectual property. The information goes as far back as 1968.

The site also offers a Hot Topic button that allows users to search on
related topics, such as the Iraq war or terrorism. LexisNexis says users
will also get access to more legal information starting next year.

The new site is very user-friendly. Simply enter your keywords and search.
The advanced search page makes it easy to search for articles about an
individual or company, to select a range of dates, or to narrow your
search in a number of other ways.

You can search for headlines in the massive database for free. In some
cases, you may be able to go to the individual publication's website and
find the same story for free, so if you have time and no expense account,
it's probably worth trying.

If you want to purchase the full text of a story, you're charged $3 per
document and that gives you access to the story for 90 days. You can print
and download the stories once you've bought them.

So when should you use this great new service? In general, start your
research by searching Google to get as much free information as you can.
But when it's time to dig in deeper to see what's been written about a
topic or person or to track down hard-to-find details, LexisNexis
AlaCarte! is a great option.
[NOTE: You can chose to store your billing information with LexisNexis when you register, or you may also opt to provide your billing information at the time of purchase. – Phyllis ]
