Teaching Tips

It is common for high school science classes to study cells. This video could be used in conjunction to a unit on cells tied to current events and climate related studies.

Core mud samples could be analyzed with students and could teach students about the secrets that lie within. A resource could be used like : where a repository of deep sea sediments is available.
