**THIS WAS MY CLASSES FAVORITE VIDEO THIS YEAR!! They asked to watch it multiple times...) This group is amazing. I love using these videos as video prompts in music class. The students watch the video and then respond with how they felt, what they liked about it, etc. Then several students share with the class. It is compelling to see what students think about "classical" music (in many cases) that has been "modernized". O Fortuna - ThePianoGuys

This is a set of 64 Crayola crayons with labels so that while children are coloring, they are also exposed to the names of chemicals that will make those colors! So instead of thinking “I want green” they will think “I want Barium Nitrate Ba(NO3)2 Flame” and then when they take chemistry in high school and their teacher sets some gas on fire and it makes a green color and they ask the class what chemical it was your student will know it was
But garden designer Sarah Price, who is also co-designer of London's Olympic Park, created a ravishingly pretty meadow at the show this year, using her fine art background to compose the colors, textures, and shapes of her plants into a tangible design that earned a surprise medal.

I love ground cherries! When they are ripe, the paper lantern will fall to the ground. They can be collected from around the base of the plant with leisure, as they will stay unharmed until the paper starts to decompose, about 3 weeks after they fall. This is a great list of unusual fruit to grow. #spon #gardening

Feelings check in book. Collage on paint samples. This is a spin off of a project @Cathy Malchiodi | Art Therapy introduced in a class. I'm using this in my internship at a high school. Have the students pick a paint color which matches how they are feeling and then decorate it. Sometimes I add an activity to it, such as, write a poem or find a photo to go along with the mood. They get really into it!
our bathroom is far to small for this gypsy lifestyle, however i just love all the live plants they would love air in there
