Forensic Science For Kids

Here is what a viewer sent to me. I've been searching the web lately for elementary teacher websites to share this great idea I have. I have two kids and have always been trying to come up with new ways to educate them at home. One activity I came up with that has been a soaring success has been forensic science activities. They don't even know they're learning science! I updated my website with these fun, learning activities and have been sharing it with as many teachers as I can find. If you have the time and think it'd be as valuable a resource to your students and parents as I do, I'd love it if you could share the link on your website. It really is such a great way for parents to teach their kids at home and have them learn science in a way that they don't even know they're learning!

Anyway, here's the link: Best regards, Allyson

ABC's of Musical Instruments

Here is a link from a viewer.
Just thought I'd share this video with you.  My 12 year-old daughter and I sing the ABC's while playing 26 instruments.

If the link doesn't work, just search YouTube for "ABC's instruments".
