Character Education: The Importance of Kindness

Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017

1:00pm-1:45pm

Grades 6-8

As part of October's celebration of Character Education Month, join us to explore the importance of kindness in your life and how acts of kindness and a culture of kindness can improve the quality of life for all.  Three different programs of the day will target elementary, middle school, and high school audiences separately, all of them focused on the big picture question:  Why be kind?

Each program will explore our big picture question in a variety of ways.  Students will be able to write their own definition of kindness and share experiences where they offered kindness to others and/or were the beneficiary of an act of kindness.  Our expert panelists will share information on the physical and mental benefits of kindness and answer student questions on the subject.  We'll invite schools joining us to share their own "Kindness Initiatives" as models for others to build on, and we'll invite all audience members to participate in role play simulations to help us determine different kindness responses that could be effective to use.

Curriculum materials for the program are also available on our Educate.Today website at http://educate.today/videos/822

Science and you!

Monday, Oct. 17, 2017

10:00am-10:45am

Grades 5-8

TEKS:

Scientific investigations and reasoning.

(i) To develop a rich knowledge of science and the natural world, students must become familiar with different modes of scientific inquiry, rules of evidence, way

s of formulating questions, ways of proposing explanations, and the diverse ways scientists study the natural world and propose explanations based on evidence derived from their work.

(iii) Scientific investigations are used to learn about the natural world. Students should understand that certain types of questions can be answered by investigations, and the methods, models, and conclusions built from these investigations change as new observations are made. Models of objects and events are tools for understanding the natural world and can show how systems work. Models have limitations and based on new discoveries are constantly being modified to more closely reflect the natural world.
3(D) relate the impact of research on scientific thought and society, including the history of science and contributions of scientists as related to the content

 

This presentation defines science, discusses scientific method, and explores careers in science including engineering, medicine, agriculture, pharmacology, veterinary medicine, and medical research. The many benefits of having a career in science will also be discussed, including the travels of a scientist. We will show many vet school animal medical specimens as we discuss what scientists do and how they achieve their goals. (Grades 5-8)

Participants will have opportunity for real-time questions and answers via Today'sMeet! We will send out a link to registered participants 24 hours before the video-conference.
