  • BBC Earth: Learn about the World's Largest Ant!

    Posted by Harry Williams on 4/15/2020 1:45:00 PM

    Painful Bites!

     

    Jude watched this really cool video about the insect with the most painful bite, which happens to be the world's largest ant!

     

    Check it out at: https://youtu.be/-Jht-IddpBM

     

    From that page: "Deep in the Panama jungle, a nervous Steve Backshall bravely allows a fearsome bullet ant to crawl over his hand. The bullet ant has a very powerful sting, and the experience brings back painful memories for Steve who has felt the full force of their bite before. Can he avoid getting bitten this time?"

  • SCIENCE: Extra credit, Extra fun!

    Posted by Harry Williams on 4/2/2020 12:35:00 PM

    Here is the latest web page sent out by BBC Earth, the Science branch of BBC in the United Kingdom.  I think the videos linked there are really interesting, high quality, and educational.  If your learner would like some extra credit in this weird marking period, he or she can write a summary of any video and send it to me at harry.williams@marion.k12.fl.us or via Dojo.

     

    It can be written or even a video summary.  Be creative--have fun--LEARN!  To go the website, click the screenshot below or HERE!

  • Make-a-Map: Prepare for the Quizzes in BrainPOP

    Posted by Harry Williams on 4/1/2020 10:05:00 AM

    I was messing around in BrainPOP and found "Make-a-Map" right next to "Quiz" in the menu next to the video. 

    make-a-map 1

    I tried it, and it was fun--and a GREAT way to go over in my mind everything I had learned.  I could organize it in my own way so that it really meant something to me, and clicking the white triangles in the black circles let me listen to an explanatio of whatever I was working with: tons, yards, pints, etc.

    make-a-map 2

    I would DEFINITELY use this before I took a quiz in BrainPOP.  Now I'm going to try some of the other things on that menu!

     

    Good luck!
