Fifth Grade Resources

My favorite resources from our online schooling adventure!

The Pangaea Pop-up - Michael Molina

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-pangaea-pop-up-michael-molina/ The supercontinent Pangaea, with its connected South America and Africa, broke apart 200 million years ago. But the continents haven't stopped shifting -- the tectonic plates beneath our feet (in Earth's two top layers, the lithosphere and the asthenosphere) are still traveling at about the rate your fingernails grow.

From the top of the food chain down: Rewilding our world - George Monbiot

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/from-the-top-of-the-food-chain-down-rewilding-our-world-george-monbiot Our planet was once populated by megafauna, big top-of-the-food-chain predators that played their part in balancing our ecosystems. When those megafauna disappear, the result is a "trophic cascade," where every part of the ecosystem reacts to the loss. How can we stay in balance?

The Arctic vs. the Antarctic - Camille Seaman

How can you tell the two poles apart? Where are the penguins? What about the bears? The Arctic pole is located in the Northern Hemisphere within the deep Arctic Ocean, while the Antarctic pole is smack in the middle of the ice-covered Antarctica.

Reasons for the seasons - Rebecca Kaplan

Why do some regions experience full-time heat while others are reckoning with frigid temperatures and snow? And why are the seasons reversed in the two hemispheres? Rebecca Kaplan explains how the shape of the Earth's orbit around the Sun and the Earth's tilt on its axis affect the amount of sunlight each region receives.

Oresome Elements

Oresome Elements is an interactive game that makes learning about the periodic table, elements and some of their properties and uses fun.
The game is aimed at secondary school students, but is just as much fun for anyone wanting to learn about elements and the periodic table.

All known chemical matter is composed of elements. In this periodic table 109 elements are identified alongside some of their properties and uses. Many of these elements form the building blocks of the minerals and fossil fuels that are extracted and processed for our everyday use.

How to play the game:
1). Tap one of the three levels to challenge you.
Level 1 is the first 20 elements in the periodic table
Level 2 is the first 30 elements in the periodic table
Level 3 is all the elements in the periodic table

2). Drag a floating element symbol and draw a path to its correct place on the periodic table. The element will then follow the path you have chosen. If the element follows a path to the correct location it docks, otherwise it returns back to the floating area. Do this for all remaining floating elements.
Careful to not make floating elements collide!

3). When all of the floating elements are in the correct location on the periodic table that game is finished. If you have the best time you can enter your name on the leader board.

Other features:
There is a settings button on the top right hand corner. In settings you can reduce or increase the speed of the elements moving along their path which might improve your time.
If you need some more clues or want to see more information about the elements close up, single tap OR double tap an element in the periodic table.

NOVA Elements

Did you ever wonder why the periodic table is shaped the way it is, what gives each element its own unique set of properties, or even how elements combine to make everyday objects such as a cup of coffee? With “NOVA Elements,” explore an interactive periodic table, play a game hosted by David Pogue, or watch the two-hour NOVA program, “Hunting the Elements.”
