Mme Merriman's Classroom: MAD SCIENCE - Bulletin board constructed creatively by science teacher, this is a great visual to be displayed in the classroom for students to learn and can be used with different topics such as earth science, chemistry or physics.
This is an activity that I would use when students are learning about perspective and their location in the world. This activity also incorporates other engaging worksheets for younger students to learn about landforms that make up our earth. I would use this activities when teaching about geography concepts in the classroom.
Jim Mortensen had a plan to beat the high price of oil during the 1974 oil embargo. He’d build an energy efficient underground house. With help from friends and family, Jim Mortensen and his wife Mickey spent about eight years building their underground house moving in in 1983. The stone facade is from rock the couple collected by hand from their land. Jim made the mortar while Mickey laid all the stone.
