Those are some great activities. I immediately thought of the book "Lies My History Teacher Taught Me" because as times have changed, I don't think we've kept up in education. That and so many cultures/religious groups place taboos on science, particularly life and earth science, so as teachers we need to be respectful of their culture but make sure they are getting the facts.

This is an excellent idea to highlight some amazing women in science. We often equate scientists with men, so what a great idea. http://sciencenetlinks.com/lessons/women-in-medicine-past-and-future/ Has some women in medicine lesson ideas.

5 Earth Characteristics
Super excited about this scipack. I had no idea that measuring the Earth's circumference was as easy as this. I enjoyed how this was a nice refresher of things that I had forgotten about from elementary school, such as the different spheres and ways that the Earth was not flat was concluded. I enjoyed it!
