While working through this science object I was reminded of the need for students to be cognizant of the effects humans have on the planet. It's not enough to tell students to "not litter" and "reduce pollution", they need to see the environmental effects. In my area there are several different types of mines that would be good for my students to see the direct effect of the industry on the environment. One thing that surprised me during this science object, and something that I had not thought about, was the draining of water from factories into ponds. This is a terrible practice, but I had never considered the temperature of the water being a factor in killing aquatic life. I had only considered the chemicals and pollutants being the cause of death for the marine lifeforms. Overall an enjoyable refresher.

This podcast provided a lot of history of salt, where it comes from, and explanation of its uses. The speaker was quite knowledgable about the topic. I would have preferred if the podcast would have focused more on the nutritional aspects of salt and why we need to be wary of it. I think I would have found that more helpful to use with my students.

This Sci Pack has a lot of great information for teachers to review before working with students on a nutrition unit. The pack goes through the building blocks of food, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, their components and why the body needs them. I feel like I could actually use some of the animations and pictures with my students to help them understand the food cycle and why we need to eat healthy. Overall, it was useful.
