After-School Educator's Guide to Ology: Paleontology
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

This comprehensive guide to the Paleontology section of OLogy, the Museum's science Web site for kids, explains how after-school educators can make the most of the site. It focuses on dinosaurs because that's what kids are most familiar with. An introduction to the Big Ideas in Paleontology brings educators up to speed on how scientists study early life on Earth, what kind of information the fossil record contains, and why dinosaurs are not extinct. A Site Map shows where to locate all Paleontology resources, from stories to quizzes to hands-on-activities. Paleontology units offer ways to combine different types of resources around a topic. Follow-up questions encourage inquiry-based learning. Wrap-Up Paleo Projects suggests fun ways to wrap up any of these units. A Links and Resources section lists recommended paleontology-related books and Web sites for educators and for kids. A glossary of paleontological terms wraps up the guide.

Anatomy and Physiology Preparatory Course Textbook [2nd Edition]
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The goal of this preparatory textbook is to give students a chance to familiarize with some terms and some basic concepts they will find in an Anatomy and Physiology course. Organization and functioning of the human organism are generally presented starting from the simplest building blocks, and then moving into levels of increasing complexity. This textbook follows the same presentation. It starts introducing the concept of homeostasis, then covers the chemical level, and later on a basic introduction to cellular level, organ level, and organ system levels. This second edition incorporates a module on protein synthesis, and a complementary base pairing learning objective as requested by many students. This edition also adds audio for all learning objectives. Audio Icon by Kieselli form Pixabay. The textbook is organized in five UNITS, divided into sixteen MODULES covering a total of fifty-two Learning Objectives. There is a short self-assessment at the end of each learning objective.

In this virtual exhibition, historian Donald Worster explains how human relations with other animals, wild and domestic, are at the core of a majority of epidemics. In the face of the current coronavirus crisis, he argues that an exclusive focus on human life and economy will keep neither the planet nor ourselves healthy. We must decide “whether we humans can or want to restore and protect the health, not just of ourselves, but also of the planet.”
