NAIS logoTeachable Moment: NAIS has pulled together a great collection of resources for teachers interested in sustainability.  Well worth poking around this web site and signing up for the Listserve.

Schools need to work toward environmental sustainability by becoming more green, reducing school and personal carbon footprints, promoting a commitment to life-long environmental responsibility, and incorporating environmental education into the curriculum

RAFT ImageTeachable Moment: If you're a science teacher in the SF Bay Area, this is an amazing resource.

The Resource Area for Teaching (RAFT) started with an idea. What if:

Every child could get excited about learning through collaborative "hands-on" activities?

Every educator could obtain low-cost materials and the training to use them in "hands-on" projects?

21st Century learning skills developed through "hands-on" education could become pervasive and improve educational outcomes?

Teachable Moment: This timeless film is still probably the best way ever devised of communicating relative sizes and magnitudes.

Powers of Ten takes us on an adventure in magnitudes. Starting at a picnic by the lakeside in Chicago, this famous film transports us to the outer edges of the universe. Every ten seconds we view the starting point from ten times farther out until our own galaxy is visible only as a speck of light among many others. Returning to Earth with breathtaking speed, we move inward- into the hand of the sleeping picnicker - with ten times more magnification every ten seconds. Our journey ends inside a proton of a carbon atom within a DNA molecule in a white blood cell.
