Because of their isolation and smaller land size, islands are interesting and unique ecological locations. The CLHS biology class took a look at the ecology of a variety of islands from around the world.
Chemistry is indeed everywhere. It is SO much everywhere, that we often don’t notice it. For this project, students were asked to keep their eyes out for chemistry…then take a photo of it with their phones. They were then given the tiny space of one slide to share something about what they learned about the chemistry behind what they observed.
To get the full effect, click the full screen icon from the embedded presentation above. There is a navigation slide at the beginning, and a ‘Home’ button on each slide to help you navigate.
Our biology class at CLHS examines different biological issues throughout the year. Fall is wildfire season in California. Months without significant rain coupled with seasonal winds, like the Santa Anas of the southern part of our state, make conditions ripe for wildfires. This Fall the class researched and put together this website about California wildfires.
October is traditionally the worst month for wildfires in California. This year October was pretty mild, but November made up for it. The Woolsey fire in the south and Camp fire in the north were two of the most significant fires in years. The Camp fire destroyed over 19,000 structures and has claimed at least 74 lives with hundreds still unaccounted for.
Grass is one of those organisms that we take for granted. Mowing the lawn is not a very popular chore. Yet seeds of grasses like wheat, rice, corn, and barley feed much of the world. The largest herds of animals on continents depend on grasses. Grass is truly a wonder of God’s creation! Working in groups, the biology class of CLHS produced some pages dealing with some of the major grasslands of the world. They were created with Adobe Spark and are very visual.
The more you understand about the structure of the periodic table, the more you understand about how God chose to assemble everything in the universe from about 90 naturally occurring elements.
The chemistry classes of CLHS put together this website to share what they learned about the periodic table. In addition to what they found, they’ve added lots of images and videos to help you gain a deeper understanding as well. Have fun!
When will I ever use this?…exclaims almost every math student at one time or another. When we look at how the world has changed over the centuries, it is clear that learning and applying mathematics has been key to that transformation.
The physics classes of CLHS put together a website to share what they’ve learned about real world applications of mathematics.
