1. Here are words that will be helpful to students doing a hands-on science inquiry in which they experience, compare, and evaluate six different bird beak adaptations. They relate these adaptations to the Essential Question: How do structural adaptations help animals survive?

  2. Tyler Lyson has been hunting dinosaurs in the Badlands of North Dakota his whole life. Growing up in a family steeped in fossil fuels, Tyler benefited from access to land, heavy equipment, and a remarkable knack for finding prehistoric creatures. (He’s like a human tuning fork for dinosaur bones.) Every year, Tyler invites volunteers — average folks from all walks of life — to join him on a dig at the Hell Creek Formation, one of the most bone-rich areas of the world. Here you can actively participate in every phase of the process — from mud to museum. MEL Films joined Tyler at the end of one of his annual “dino camp” excursions to dig up an intact 7-foot triceratops skull. And while we were there, he made an extremely rare discovery look easy by finding another one. Watch the film above for a glimpse into the real Jurassic Park.

  4. Huaka‘i ‘Āina Ho‘oilina: Exploring the Lands that Sustain Us

    Kamehameha Schools

    Chapter 1, Creating the Culture that Thrived: Ahupua‘a

    As a Native Hawaiian trust, Kamehameha Schools is committed to caring for the lands entrusted to us by our founder, Ke Ali‘i Bernice Pauahi Bishop, and the values and principles of our kupuna(ancestors) guide our stewardship practices today. Returns generated by these lands - measured in terms of educational, cultural, environmental, economic and community benefits - are all applied to fulfilling Kamehameha's mission of improving the capability and well-being of the Hawaiian people.

    And because we know that many in our community share a sense of kuleana(responsibility) for these resources, Kamehameha Schools works collaboratively with other non-profit organizations and individuals to malama(care for) our lands for enjoyment today and for future generations.
