    Default ScienceNet Web site? 6th grade science

    In 6th grade science, one of the lessons references going to the ScienceNet web site to learn how to do an activity.

    Does anyone know the actual URL?

    It is NOT:
    http://www.science.net
    http://www.sciencenet.com

    Thanks

    Which lesson activity number was it?

    Not sure if that is it or not, only because I searched on the site you listed and can't find any experiment about growing your own crystals with salt and water. I'm usually really good at finding things (it's part of my actual work that I do online everyday), so this has me puzzled. The site you list isn't really a site with experiments on it - it's more about programs that they offer.

    (from the Scope & Sequence PDF)
    It's 6th grade, science
    Chapter: Properties of Matter
    Lesson Code 2 - Different States of Matter
    LA Code: 6837

    When you are actually logged into T4L under the student area - it's
    6th grade, science
    Properties of Matter
    Different States of Matter
    Shapes Shifters
    pg 3 - the box about growing your own crystals


    Any additional help would be greatly appreciated.

    It would really be nice if when sites are referenced within a lesson that an actual link would be provided somewhere

    Hi,

    I followed the links to SciecneNet and was directed to http://www.yesmag.ca/projects/crystal_gardens.html

    You will find a great step by step instruction manual on how to grow your own crystals there.

    I would also just like to note that the suggested materials and websites listed in our free subjects of Science and Social Studies need to be updated. If anything, they give good ideas on how to expand your subject studies.

    Have a great day!

    Spirit

    Thanks Spirit for the link. That one is more than just salt and water however (what the T4L lesson talks about).

    I did find a salt and water only experiment for making crystals on my own though (not using the ScienceNet site)

    I agree that the Science and Social Studies sections definitely need some updating.

    I have had difficulty finding this website also. Try about.com.chemistry and go the the "growing crystals" section. There are many different experiments there.
