This Looks Like a Great Hands-on PD Experience

FireWorks is an educational program, sponsored in part by the U.S. Forest Service, designed to teach students about the science of wildfires. This morning I received an email about a free two day professional development workshop centered around the FireWorks educational curriculum. The hands-on workshop is in Missoula, Montana this June. It appears to be open to anyone who is interested in using the FireWorks curriculum.

You should note that the FireWorks curriculum is region-specific. The material is focused on on the Northern Rocky, Northern Cascades, and Sierra Nevada regions.

What Is Fire? - A Short Explanation

Last year I featured a seven minute award-winning animated video explanation of flames. This afternoon I found another video on the topic. What Is Fire? is a short video from Minute Physics. It doesn't go into much detail which could actually be a good thing because it could spark your students' investigations into the topic to learn more.

Minute Physics has disabled embedding of the What Is Fire? video. I have embedded What Is a Flame? below.
