Baby Season | UNTAMED
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Learn about the very busiest time of year for Wildlife Center staff, students, and volunteers -- baby season! Spring is a time for new life; many species of wild animals are giving birth or laying eggs and caring for young throughout much of the spring. It's also the time of year when people are more active; as the warm weather approaches, humans spend more time in their yards and gardens and in the great outdoors. This increased activity of both humans and wild animals can put us all in more direct contact with one another. There are a number of misinformation and misconceptions about young wild animals; learn from the Wildlife Center staff how to best help young animals stay in the wild with their parents. UNTAMED looks at the wild and often perilous world of wildlife, as seen through the eyes of the patients of the Wildlife Center of Virginia, a non-profit teaching and research hospital for native wildlife.

Learn about bats -- a diverse group of flying mammals that humans often associate with folklore, legends, ghost stories, and scary tales. But we have more in common with bats than we think -- these tiny mammals are socially intelligent and can have a rich social structure and means of communication with each other. Bats are not only fascinating, but they are also quite beneficial to our environment and play an important role in the habitats we share with them. These animals are in need of our help now more than ever as they face population declines and serious problems, most of which originate from humans.

Eating Healthy - CS/CT Elementary Hyperdoc
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Through Computer Science and Computational Thinking, students will develop ways to remain healthy while being quarantined. Beginning with a student-relevant scenario, students will use the 7 components of Computational Thinking to find solutions to a problem that they may be encountering. They are able to learn more about the problem through developmentally appropriate content and research. Finally, students are able to use some of the solutions they have come up with to create a real world solution through STEAM acitivies. Each hyperdoc also includes a digital block-based coding activity to increase students interest and understanding of coding.

Fossil Identification Software
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Earth Science SOL ES.9 states that students should interpret the history of the Earth from fossils. In theory this is easy, but may take years to be proficient at identifying index fossils and getting their geologic age. I have created an app that allows students to measure fossils,  get their identity down to the genus level and their geologic age, in under 5 minutes! The app also can calculate the surface are of the shells.
