Paleontology 101 - Putting Together a Dinosaur Skeleton

Untamed Science and Pearson OLE recently published an extensive blog post about how dinosaurs are discovered and named. The full post includes links to free lesson plans about dinosaurs. The lesson plans are suitable to use with elementary school and middle school students.

The part of the Untamed Science and Pearson OLE dinosaur post that I found most interesting is the following video about how dinosaur fossils are un-earthed and examined. It's not at all like we see in movies.

Tropical Ice - A Climate Change Story

When we think of climate change we often think about the shrinking polar glaciers. There are other places in the world that have glaciers too. In this Untamed Science video we learn about tropical glaciers in Uganda. The video is a quick overview of how glaciers can form in tropical regions. The most valuable piece of the video is the imagery comparing the size of tropical glaciers 100 years ago to the size of those glaciers today. The video is embedded below.
