This activity is about planetary climate. Once familiar with the factors that determine a planet's surface temperature, learners will use an interactive spreadsheet model of a planet's atmosphere to determine if greenhouse gases, luminosity of the source, the distance of the planet from the source and the albedo of the planet can be manipulated so that the average surface temperature on Mars or Venus could support human life. Learners will then be asked to make some conclusions about these methods and suggest improvements for the spreadsheet model (see related resources for link to this model). The activity requires use of Microsoft Excel software. This is Activity D in the fourth module, titled "How do Atmospheres Affect Planetary Temperatures?," of "Earth Climate Course: What Determines a Planet's Climate?."

The project is called "Chemistry and Cooking" and it will last about 6 weeks. Students will learn about what matter is, the phases of matter, the difference between physical and chemical properties, as well as physical and chemical changes. The project’s Driving Question, which focuses our work, is “How does an understanding of chemistry impact your cooking?” Students will be involved in hands-on activities and labs that will help them learn the concepts that they will then apply to their final project. The child will work independently on a recipe of their choice to show their understanding of how chemistry impacts cooking.

The Republic of Plato is one of the classic gateway texts into the study and practice of philosophy, and it is just the sort of book that has been able to arrest and redirect lives. How it has been able to do this, and whether or not it will be able to do this in your own case, is something you can only discover for yourself. The present guidebook aims to help a person get fairly deep, fairly quickly, into the project. It divides the dialogue into 96 sections and provides commentary on each section as well as questions for reflection and exploration. It is organized with a table of contents and is stitched together with a system of navigating bookmarks. Links to external sites such as the Perseus Classical Library are used throughout. This book is suitable for college courses or independent study.

It can be hard to “be ourselves” because we do not always know how to start. Lesson One “Be Your Best Self” is part of the Lead2Feed Student Leadership Program for grades 6-12. These innovative lessons are designed to take students through principles of leadership while blending research, goal setting and project planning, and taking action in conjunction with solving a school/community issue (service learning).

Full teacher and student lesson plans are accessible on the website: Lead2Feed.org. After completing the lessons and a project, students tell their story by entering the Lead2Feed Challenge and become eligible for charity and school grants up to $10,000. This is a free program perfect for advisory time, clubs/associations, CTE classes and any subject area!

Suggestion: Before beginning Lesson One, have students take the “Leadership Survey” (download from the Lead2Feed website). This sets a level of student leadership knowledge prior to the program. Show the introductory video (by David Novak) to students.
Teachers may want to view the one-minute video clip featuring Allison Silverman (Found on the Lesson One blog on the Lead2Feed website).

The lessons in the program have been carefully aligned to the WI State Standards for CCTS. The alignment allows teachers to plan strategically to incorporate the Lead2Feed lessons seamlessly into their classroom and expand to meet classroom needs.
