    First, let me say you are welcome. It is a pleasure to share.

    These are very appropriate for HS students. Check them out. Good for debate, presentation of view points that many middle class American families are not well versed about. Watch, consider, debate, discuss, and see where there can be hope for families affected by poverty, gang violance, diminished potential and imaginge how this affects the students setting in our classrooms with chips on their shoulders and "attitudes." It doesn't give us easy answers, but it points out why there is so much discrepancy between SES and achievement. Just a thought.

    Blick's Pick: Use physics to de-decorate

    Okay, I don't actually recommend this, but it is a nice example of rotational motion and inertia. The car pulls the string of lights wrapped around the Christmas tree. This sets the tree spinning, and the decorations all fly off in a couple of seconds. I prefer not to say that the decorations are pushed off the tree by the centrifugal force (since I'm not in the frame of reference of the spinning tree) but rather that the decorations fly off in a straight line when the hangers can't keep pulling them around in a circle any more. The hangers have to pull with a centripetal force to keep the ornaments moving in a circular path. YouTube link | Archive ANYTHING that makes physics easier to understand gets high marks from me!

    http://metro.co.uk/2015/10/28/this-...a-video-from-the-police-is-brilliant-5466392/
    OK, I know that this one seems a stretch for a science teacher, but I share my room one period with the PE teacher who teaches Health, and the subject of responsibility/sex ed comes up. When I saw this and how wonderfully sexual consent could be explained by describing offering a cup of tea in a video, I laughed out loud, not at the video, but because someone was truly brilliant enough to create this in a way that is so logical without being titillating to teenagers.

    For anyone who missed Mrs. K's recommendation, please let me add this to my links. I have been poking around in the site for a few days, and see great value to educators on many levels. I hope you enjoy.
