Description: A wild reared caterpillar, captured as an egg, transitioned into a chrysalis. In this video the details of the antenna, legs, and other parts are visible. Later when the chrysalis forms a hard outer shell, the parts become more obscure. This video was filmed Tuesday, October 23, 2018. Los Angeles California.
Description: This butterfly was raised as a wild caught egg. The video was filmed October 30th, 2018, Los Angeles California. When the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis its wings are notably small. To get its wings full size the butterfly pumps body fluids through veins in its wings. The wings 'inflate' like a water balloon. Once the wings are full size, they expel the fluid from the tips of their wings. This is the secret to the ridged light wing structure of the butterfly.
Description: These notes go along with the Bonding and Nomenclature Unit for Regents Chemistry. The lesson goes through both naming the compounds and writing proper formulas for the compounds. It includes polyatomic ions and Roman Numerals.
Description: Here is a short lesson for 9th grade biology on ecological succession. I paired this lessons with the ecological succession interactive game on biomanbio.com. I also used a worksheet that assessed the student's knowledge of the subject and critical thinking.
