Kitchen Science - Let's Make Butter

SciShow Kids recently released a new video titled Let's Make Butter. The video provides directions for making butter in your kitchen then goes on to explain the science of what happens in the process of making butter.


Applications for Education
Rainy days like the one we're having here in Maine are perfect for kitchen science lessons. My daughter is a little too young for this activity, but if you have kids of elementary school age, this could be a nice rainy day science lesson.

Practical Ed Tech Webinar FAQs

Starting in May and running through the end of August I will be hosting five different professional development webinars for teachers and school administrators. I recorded the video embedded below to answer some of the questions that are most frequently asked about my Practical Ed Tech webinars. Watch the video and you'll get the discount code for the webinars as well as a chance to see a guest appearance from one of my dogs.


Of course, you can always email me at richardbyrne (at) freetech4teachers.com if you have questions that aren't answered in the video or on the webinar registration pages.

The Week in Review - The Most Popular Posts

Good morning from rainy Maine. The rain doesn't stop us from playing outside, but it's not quite as fun as playing in the sun. I am hopeful that all of our April showers will soon be replaced by May flowers. Speaking of things happening in May, next month I'm kicking off my summer schedule of Practical Ed Tech professional development webinars. Join me for one or all five of my courses and you'll be ready to start the next school year with lots of new ideas about using technology in your classroom. Of course, if you're the type of person who prefers an in-person learning environment, the Practical Ed Tech Summer Camps are for you.
