  49. Geology Tool Kit  The home of free learningfrom The Open University    For ten years, give or take, was the online home of Open University and BBC programming. Over the last few months, though, we've been moving into OpenLearn, creating one home for all The Open University's free learning content. It means we share a home with the Open University's iTunesU and YouTube channels, and much more besides.
  50.  Astronomy Online Puzzles   Answer the astronomy questions and a picture will appear. Click on a resource below to go to a puzzle about that topic. These activities are designed for young astronomers in grades 2-6. A suggested classroom activity involves having the students read the related pages on that topic in Zoom Astronomy, (which is listed on each puzzle page) and then answer the questions.
  51. Insects  There are well over 1 million different known species of insects in the world, and some experts estimate that there might be as many as 10 million.All these species are divided up into about 32 orders, depending on whose taxonomic system you use, of which, the largest is the Beetles, or Coleoptera, with 125 different families and around 500,000 species they are an incredibly diverse group of animals. In fact, one in every four animal species on this planet is a beetle.

  63. Cool Science For Curious Kids  At Cool Science, we entertain questions of all kinds (Ask a Scientist). We encourage young scientists to get their hands dirty-virtually (Curious Kids). We offer high school and college students new approaches to cutting-edge science topics (BioInteractive). We provide educators with a host of innovative resources they can use in their classrooms (For Educators). We reveal what it takes to become a scientist (Becoming a Scientist). And we showcase an undergraduate science discovery project that may one day change the way science is taught (SEA).
  64. Exploratorium  The Exploratorium is a museum of science, art, and human perception located in San Francisco, California. We believe that following your curiosity and asking questions can lead to amazing moments of discovery, learning, and awareness, and can increase confidence in your ability to understand how the world works. We also believe that being playful and having fun is an important part of the process for people of all ages.We create tools and experiences that help you to become an active explorer: hundreds of explore-for-yourself exhibits; a Web site with over 25,000 pages of content; film screenings; workshops for lifelong learners including day camps for kids and family investigations; evening art and science events for adults—plus much more. We also create professional development programs for educators, and are at the forefront of changing the way science is taught. We share our exhibits and expertise with museums worldwide.
  65. The Human Body  If you are brand new to InnerBody, we invite you to check out the instructional video that we created in hopes that it would provide a good introductory overview of the features on the site.  There are many interactive ways to learn about anatomy on InnerBody, whether you arrive hoping to learn about a particular body part or instead aim to explore an anatomical system without any one particular object of interest. You can explore anatomy by system (like the cardiovascular system for example), by general region of the body (like the head, or the legs), or by jumping to a specific body part and branching out from there. 
  66. Physics Classroom  A set of instructional pages written in an easy-to-understand language and complemented by graphics and Check Your Understanding sections. An ideal starting location for those grasping for understanding or searching for answers.

  68. NASA Biomes  Below are interactive experiments that can be used to teach all ages about the art and science of space-based remote sensing. The experiments focus on how NASA uses remote sensing to study how and why the Earth changes.
  69. Earth Floor Biomes  There are many different kinds of plants and animals on the Earth, but only certain kinds are naturally found at any particular place. (We are not counting zoos here!) For example, cacti are found in the desert, polar bears are found in the Arctic, and elephants are found in central Africa and India. So, why don't people living in south Texas have to be on the lookout for snow leopards, or why don't kids in Minnesota have to worry about finding giant boa constrictors in their back yards? It is because these animals are not adapted to live in the average weather conditions found in Texas or Minnesota.
  70. Biomes Of The World  The document name you requested (/lessons/biomes/biomes.html) could not be found on this server. However, we found documents with names similar to the one you requested.
  71. World Biomes  is a site covering 5 of the major world biomes.  What's a biome? Biomes are the various regions of our planet which can best be distinguished by their climate, fauna and flora.
  72. Build A Solar System  Fill in the diameter of the Sun you want your model to be scaled by. You can fill in either the red bordered inches box or the green bordered millimeters box. Important: Only fill in one box. If both are filled in you will get a dialog box asking you to clear one of the boxes. Use the Clear button to clear the entire form.
  73. Cool Cosmos  The “Cool Cosmos” team has made its main occupation to communicate and explain the world of infrared astronomy to students and the public at large. But we also recognize that our efforts must be multi-faceted and cover multi-wavelength astronomy as well as the many different areas of science.
  74. Visual Learning  Below are some of the interactive learning tools developed by Visionlearning to help convey core scientific concepts. Each of the tools below is associated with a learning module on our site that provides detailed background on the subject in question.
