America on the Move takes your students on a fascinating journey through the history of the United States from 1876 to 2000, using the lens of transportation. As an accompaniment to the National Museum of Natural History’s newest permanent exhibition, America on the Move explores historical moments, from the coming of the railroad to a California town in 1876 to the role of the streetcar and the automobile in creating suburban communities, to the transformation of a U.S. port by containerized shipping in the 1970s.

The video and teacher's guide explore several critical dimensions of the question, "What does Veteran's Day mean to you?" These dimensions include: who are veterans, how and why we honor them, what can we learn from the lives of veterans, and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. The purpose of the materials is to increase student's understanding of the role of veterans in society.

This series goes so far south that it's almost north to discover the little-understood continent of Antarctica. Students will explore its biological diversity, the geology, the geography and the weather. Students also learn more about the debate concerning the necessity of balance between the desire for progress and the need for preservation of this important continent.
Subjects: Ohio History
Grade(s): 9th Grade, 10th Grade, 11th Grade, 12th Grade
Take a humorously entertaining trip with our host Dan Shellenbarger as he journeys to Ohio’s international cities: places like Berlin - which has one of the largest Amish populations in the country, and Athens - recognized as one of the 13 most haunted places in the world.
Grade(s): 4th Grade, 5th Grade, 6th Grade
Through Arts Revolution's exploration of dance, music, theatre and visual arts students learn about art and creativity through observation and participation. The series includes examples of middle and high school students participating in ballet, Indian dance, classical music, steel drum music, musical theatre, video production, graphic arts and sculpture. Interviews with these students examine why they participate in art and what they have learned through their experiences. Introductory arts integrated lessons are included for teachers that connect one art form to an academic area and all lessons are aligned with the Ohio Academic Content Standards. Each of the lessons has an arts component so that every student has the opportunity to explore the arts and his/her own creativity. Assessment strategies are also included.
Subjects: Geography, Mathematics
Grade(s): 4th Grade, 5th Grade, 6th Grade
Big or Small: Measure It All was created with a two-fold purpose. First, the videos show students how measurement is used every day in the “real world.” Second, the package offers students “hands-on” lessons that require the use of measurement to accomplish a task. It is directed at grades 4 and 6 and is keyed to mathematics standards for those grades. The package was created by a team of teachers from school districts in our service area.
Subjects: Biology, Science
Grade(s): 7th Grade, 8th Grade, 9th Grade, 10th Grade, 11th Grade, 12th Grade
Understanding the amazing phenomena of life requires an intimate acquaintance with living things. This program introduces students to four organisms, Paramecium, Hydra, Planaria, and Daphnia we call the Biology Classics, “classics” because not only they are featured in science textbooks, but also because studying them broadens our concept of what it means to be alive. Detailed PDF study guides that can be printed for student use are available at the Web site listed; also included is a teacher’s section with suggestions and tips on using the program in an active learning mode. The Biology Classics can be used in Middle School Science, High School Biology, and classes everywhere living organisms are studied.
Subjects: Mathematics, Professional Development, Science
Grade(s): Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, 5th Grade, 6th Grade, 7th Grade, 8th Grade, 9th Grade, 10th Grade, 11th Grade, 12th Grade
While women make up 46% of the work force, women hold only 8% of engineering jobs, and only 9% of our country’s physicists are women. Sound surprising? This program uses research and examples to appeal to
parents, caregivers, and the community regarding what they can and need to do to get their girls involved in science and math.
Subjects: Media, Reading/Language Arts
Grade(s): 8th Grade, 9th Grade, 10th Grade
Change My Mind is based on the concept that students will be bombarded with persuasive techniques in all aspects of their life. They need to recognize when persuasive techniques are being used and, in turn, how students can use them to try and persuade others. This project is directed at the persuasive writing process. The multimedia kit is keyed to grades 8-10 language arts standards and includes a teacher guide, five videos and a Web site.
