Crickweb:  The String of Beads

Use this simple site to practice sequencing and patterns.  On level one each pattern includes six beads and the pattern to follow.  Click on a color and then on a bead to fill in the color.  When finished, check to see if your pattern is correct.  After you finish all the patterns on level one, move up to level two which has ten beads to color in.  Watch carefully as you complete each step.  It’s easy to correct your mistakes, and this is a great way to see how observant you are.Apr. 15http://www.crickweb.co.uk/assets/activities/player.php?file=beads

National Environmental Education Foundation: National Environmental Education Week

It’s no surprise that an entire week is dedicated to environmental education just before Earth Day.  This year the week is April 13-19.  The theme for 2014 is Greening STEM: Engineering a Sustainable World.  You can download a Greening STEM toolkit that has lessons to use that are applicable to the theme.  You can also access the lesson plans from 2012 and 2013.  See how mathematics and science mesh perfectly with environmental education to bring real world problems to students. Lots of videos show what individual students and schools are doing to support the environment by using concepts from STEM teaching.Apr. 14http://eeweek.org
