Simple Science at Home with Pressure

Here’s the fifth in a series of fun, at home resources
I want to share from SteveSpanglerScience.com. 

He’s posting fifty experiments for fifty days starting yesterday 3/23/20. Check them out!

I picked activities that worked for a variety
of ages and with simple materials you might find at home.

I suggest many extensions to challenge
kids as they do science (and make the activity
take a bit longer).

Wonderful Writing Resources

I seem to find it easier to challenge capable students in math or solving puzzles than students who are passionate about writing.

It seems there are many online resources for math/puzzle solvers and not so many for writers.

Often the contests for writers include a fee or a requirement to purchase a bound book which can be out of a student’s price range.

Jerry Jenkins posted The Ultimate Guide to Writing Contests 2019. There are three dozen contests in his list. Here’s the one I found interesting.

Online Resource: Utah Education Network

Check out these amazing interactives that have been collected by the Utah Education Network (UEN).

This organization connects all Utah school districts, schools, and higher education institutions to provide quality resources.

I’m grateful they’re willing to share without requiring a sign in so the resources can be used by teachers and parents.
