Stop Disasters Game

Here is the link for the stop disasters game this week. Play this with an earthquake as your disaster.


Here is a video that we partially viewed in class for writing and science.

NANOYOU – Narrated by Stephen Fry from Neon Otter on Vimeo.

This film is non-commercial and funded by the EC for the NANOYOU project – – an education portal about all things nano.

This film was produced and directed by Tom Mustill for the NANOYOU Project as a resource for young people, teachers and anyone interested to get a quick introduction to Nanoscience. Please feel free to download, embed it and pass it on!

The film was mainly shot at and with the assistance of the Nanoscience Centre at the University of Cambridge and features researchers involved in exploring the world of Nano.

Squishy Circuits

Squishy Circuits Website – The Squishy Circuits website has the directions for making conductive and non-conductive dough to use while making circuits!

Mars Resources

During science we watched a video about the Mars Rovers. Here is some more information about Mars:

Mars Education Program at ASU – This website from ASU has a lot of information about Mars and the Mars Rovers.

Explore Mars – iTunes Link – These are videos hosted by IDEAL and NASA about Mars.

Stargazing for Everyone – iTunes Link – I know this isn’t specifically about Mars, but these videos, hosted on iTunes by IDEAL, are interviews with the instructor from the Stargazing for Everyone program here in Arizona.

Also, in Google Earth, you can view Mars. If you are unable to download GE, you can also see Mars in Google Mars in your browser.

Science Chapter 2 Vocabulary

Here are the Voice Threads of our chapter 2 vocabulary in science.

[kml_flashembed movie="" width="480" height="360" wmode="transparent" /]


We used a website called VoiceThread to make our Science Picture Dictionaries (Williams’ ClassMabee’s Class).

Now you can comment on VoiceThreads using your phone instead of a microphone.  While viewing a slide, there is a phone icon near the microphone icon. You can click on it, put your phone number in, and they call you to leave a message on the slide. The only problem I see with this right now is that you have to have registered an account with VoiceThread to use this feature. That is actually a good thing too, because it tracks who leaves the comments.

Check out this VoiceThread for an example on how to leave a voice comment using your phone:
