Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of climate change. Using time-lapse cameras, his videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.
Look for us at the 2013 International Montessori Congress
Imagine attending an event where thousands of the world’s education professionals gather to explore the universal themes and unique facets of Montessori. Trainers, teachers, and administrators from nearly every continent will be united to celebrate, learn, and connect on their shared commitment to the work of Dr. Maria Montessori.
Primordial soup is what scientists call the hot organic chemicals that were produced around thermal vents at the beginning of life. They mixed to form amino acids and simple sugars that would be the building blocks for the first cell.
Download this label and put it on a soup can. Put it on your science shelves. Both our upper elementary and middle school students love to read the label. Encourage them to explore the theories behind primordial soup and what the ocean conditions were like over four billion years ago when life began.
