Earth Day

thBy now everyone has heard of Earth Day. Celebrated on April 22nd, Earth Day is a day of education and celebration about the Earth’s environment. More than a billion people worldwide celebrate it each year, and it encourages changes in human behavior that will provoke future policy changes.

Nasco has long been an advocate of the environment, and we have plenty of products to help you celebrate.

Make Earth Science fun while covering subjects like geology, astronomy, and meteorology with our Earth Science Battle (SB49997M). A Nasco Exclusive, the game encourages cooperative learning while using key applications.

Our InQuizaQuest® Earth Science Game (SB49989M), complete with DVD, employs an interactive game show-style format featuring six different categories, including Rocks and Minerals and Erosion and Weathering. Or discover the biomes of North America with the EcoQuest® Biomes Comparison Kit (SB38148M). This game acquaints students with different geographical landscapes and environments.

Who will survive? The many factors that affect survival come to play in Nasco’s Lucky Mammal Survival Game (SB49559M). Create an animal and see if it is able to adapt to a changing environment. Know much about ecosystems? Explore the world’s land and water systems by focusing on climate and life within the habitats with the Ecosystems Challenge (SB49732M) card game.

Nasco also has fun posters to help everyone learn about the Earth and its fragile habitats. Our Habitats Learning Chart Combo Pack (SB47736M) introduces students to diverse natural habitats through these teacher-created charts. Activities are included on the back of each chart, which includes Deserts, Forests, Coral Reefs, Tundras, Grasslands, and Wetlands.

How about some Go Green Activities to get your interest going? 5-Minute Go Green Activites Book (WA28144M) are quick, easy, and effective activities that allow children (and adults!) to get thinking about easy ways to incorporate green practices, including water use, transportation, food choices, and more. Our Environmental Situation Cards (C29136M) present 50 common environmental issues affecting people in all parts of the world, and ask questions for the reader to consider and address, including global warming, ecology, and fossil fuels.

Earth Day can be celebrated in many different ways. Besides learning about the environment with our games and cards, you can single handedly help the environment by planting wildflowers, flowers that attract butterflies, or grow an organic garden.

You can read more about Earth Day at its official site, http://www.earthday.org/.

BeadsNothing says Spring like new jewelry! And nothing is more satisfying than making your own. That’s where Nasco’s Arts & Crafts catalog comes in. We are bursting with all the materials you need to make your one-of-a-kind artwork.

Time To Get Organized!

Get-Organized_PostIt-Note-copyEver have one of those days – one of those weeks – where you can’t find a thing? You know you had a particular book in mind you wanted to read to your students, but now wonder where it went? What about all those pieces for your arts and crafts projects? Wasn’t there a stack of tissue paper there somewhere?

All you need is a little help with that big O – ORGANIZATION. Well, here at Nasco, our storage ideas come in all sizes and colors.

Too many calculators stacked up in your classroom corner? How about one of our calculator caddies? Calculator Caddy I (TB15632T) is made of blue denim and has 30 numbered pockets 2-3/4” wide. Need a bigger size? TB18800T holds up to 35 calculators (or other objects) in 3-3/4” x 4” clear pockets.

Bins and Boxes. Who doesn’t need a boatload of those? Clear modular boxes TB24599T (6 qt.), TB24602T (13.50 qt.), TB24600T (21 qt.), or TB24601T (34 qt.) lets you see exactly what’s in them. Not wanting to see quite everything? How about solid-color stackable storage containers with snap-on lids? WA09234H (3 gal.), WA23971H (10 gal.), or WA11200H (14 gal.) might be just what you need to pack away all your “extras.”

Boxes too pedestrian for you? Need more of an organizing system? How about Nasco’s Rolling Tote Storage System (9716853) or the ALVIN® Blue Hills Studio™ Double-Wide Storage Carts with 12 or 20 drawers (WA28427H and WA28426H)? Both have plenty of drawers and an interlocking rail and drawer system. Nasco’s Storage Cart on Wheels (9716853) has nine clear bins and all-steel construction, and our Rolling 10-Drawer Organizer (WA22879H) is a tower of 10 colorful bins and is only 13” wide.

Okay. Maybe your organization needs are on a smaller scale…something more…specific. Lose the original box your art brushes came in? How about a 52-hole MultiBin® (9709728), or a storage box (9722920 has five compartments), or 9715985 (has a lift-out tray)?

What about your books? Standing books flat one atop another is not a way to go through life. Never be at a loss for a good book with organizational products from Nasco! What about Nasco’s “Little Blue” Mobile Book Browser Cart (EL10204J), a heavy-duty mobile cart that’s built to last? Or maybe a dual-purpose Book Display Stand (Z20419J) that includes a display stand on one side and four horizontal shelves on the backside? Nasco also has a Mobile Book Stand (Z45995J), which includes two adjustable front shelves and open bottom storage on one side and two large shelves on the back.

Maybe just a tabletop rack will do the trick. Try the economically priced small wire Big Book Rack (SB26754J), or the little larger Book Display Rack (SB29669J), both of which fit on top of a table or storage unit.

Do you have something bigger in mind? Something that, say, would become part of the room? Nasco has those too. We have a Lock-It-Up Cabinet (Z20434) with four shelves, the Contender™ Open-Shelf Multipurpose Four-Tiered Storage Unit (Z46356), and a number of good-sized Mobile Carts (Z09515M is stainless steel) or WA04058M (made of durable, injection molded thermoplastic).

Now is the best time to get on the Organizational Trail. Come visit Nasco for a great selection of both big and small ways to keep one step ahead of the confusion!

Free Math Lesson Plans

 

eq5p54Math can be a complicated subject. Even the best of students may get stuck trying to understand certain concepts. Nasco has downloadable Math Lesson Plans to help teachers work with students of all levels. Often created by teachers for teachers, these free PDF MathWorks Lesson Plans are engaging lesson plans for all grade levels that fit the changing needs of today’s students.

Here is a sample of our downloadable PDFs:

Using Ten Frames for Algebraic Equations Up to 20 — Applies basic algebraic principles to addition problems, creates fact families with the given digits, and manipulates ten frames to solve addition problems with missing addends.

Addition and Subtraction Word Problems Using the Rekenrek — Students will be able to find the answer to word problems with answers between 0 and 20, design their own real-world word problems with answers between 0 and 20, and utilize an algebraic equation when solving each word problem.

Dealing Up Determinants – This lesson will help students find value of determinants, find inverses of 2×2 matrices, and solve 3×3 determinants using diagonals.

Pancakes and Pi — Students will better understand the meaning of the mathematical number π. They will have the opportunity to see the spatial relationship between the diameter and circumference of all circles no matter what the size. They will be able to measure the diameter and the circumference of a circle.

Calculating Wages…How Much Will You Make? — Objectives for Pre-Algebra include modeling, writing, and solving two-step linear equations using a variety of methods, and using the basic operations on rational numbers to solve problems in real-life situations (e.g. describe the effect of multiplying a whole number by a fraction or a decimal less than 1). Algebra I level includes distinguishing between relations and functions, evaluate a function using tables, equations, or graphs, and match appropriate equations or inequalities (with 1 or 2 variables) to a graph, table, or situation and vice versa.

Using Technology to Teach Parallel Lines with Transversals – This lesson plan explores the relationships between angles formed by two lines cut by a transversal when lines are and are not parallel. Use results to develop methods to show parallelism.

Coordinating a Shape’s Area and Perimeter — Students will construct various shapes on their geoboards given specific coordinates, be able to calculate both the area and the perimeter of each polygon, and create their own shapes given specific parameters.

Map Your Way Around the World

AC162116Round and Round, Floor Flat, or Wall Scape – how do you see your world?

The circumference of the Earth is 24,901 miles. With all the countries and biomes between here and there and around and around, why not check out Nasco’s maps, puzzles, and wall hangings?

The Wonder Foam® USA Foam Floor Puzzle (SB41699J) spreads out to 48” W x 30” H, and includes 50 state pieces, 16 punch-out landmarks, five great lakes, and two interlocking bars to attach to Alaska and Hawaii. We also have a U.S.A. Geography Floor Puzzle (EL11859J), which measures 36” W x 24” H, and teaches the locations, capital, industries, resources, and more for each state.

Maybe a spinaroonie on a globe is more your style. The Adventurer Globe (SB39256M), geared to the very young, is a 12″ dia. simplified political globe which includes raised-relief, distinctive colored boundaries; easy-to-find geographic locations; and a durable, translucent, blue molded plastic. Or maybe one of Nasco’s best sellers, the Pioneer Globe (SB16464M). It’s a 12” political globe with mounting that swings up and down for better viewing.

Provoke your imagination in new ways with Nasco’s Day/Night Globe (SB50412M). The day globe shows the striking colors of a blue ocean political map when not lit. Turn the light on and witness the incredible change to the sky at night as it transitions into a night globe naming and depicting 88 constellations and more than 35 of the brightest stars.

How about some toss-around worlds to encourage learning?

Our Topographical Inflatable Globes (SB49723M for 12” dia., SB49724M for 16” dia., and SB49725 for a 27” dia.) are beautiful physical globes that show the Earth with natural topographical covering and a dark blue ocean. We also feature a Topographical Globe (PE08410M), a crystal-clear, 36” inflatable globe featuring the topographic views of the Earth’s landscape. The artwork is printed on the reverse side of the vinyl, giving great detail of the islands, continents, deserts, mountains, and lakes of the world.

Maybe a big poster map is what you need to fill out that classroom wall. We have those, too!

Our 39” x 21” framed Geophysical World Relief Map (SB13774M) is a large, full-color, raised-relief map showing land areas in relief and accurate color, with political boundaries and ocean features highlighted. We also showcase a Laminated Poster Map in either U.S.A. mode (SB49728M) or World mode (SB49729M). Both highlight political boundaries, highways, cities, capitals, rivers, and more.

And for those who want to map the stars, Nasco features a number of celestial globes. Our unusual, two-way illuminated Constellation Globe (SB28577M) is sure to stimulate discussion and curiosity both in the classroom and at home. Turn the light off and brilliant lithography delineates the firmament’s stars, constellations, and nebulae; turn the light on and witness the luminous beauty of over 70 celestial images.

Or perhaps a 12-inch diameter Transparent Celestial Globe (SA02872M), a star globe surrounding a 4-inch diameter Earth globe mounted within the sphere. This magnificent globe is designed to show positions of the stars at any given time and date as seen from any location on Earth. It is essentially a three-dimensional star finder; observations are Earth-centered; therefore, Earth is located in the center of the globe.

Maps not only tell you where you’ve been, but where you’re going. Explore the world around you, starting with Nasco globes, maps, and posters.
