A website I created for reviewing Sink & Float. It includes a Flash activity where students can virtually drop different objects in the water to see if they sink or float and then they can sort the objects using a chart. There is also an AppleWorks database you could download if you have that program on your computer (Mac). The Flash activities will work on any computer though.

This exploration allows you to travel to the tiny world of DNA. Beginning with the body and ending with the atoms that make up a single DNA base, you'll be able to zoom in to 15 different levels to see DNA's relationship to us as a whole. Along the way you'll also see the intricate bending and winding that takes place within a chromosome, which allows more than five feet of DNA to fit within the nucleus of a tiny cell. This resource is part of the Biology Links for One Laptop Per Child course which contains units on Exploring Life; The Cell; Genetics; Mechanisms of Evolution; The Evolutionary History of Biological Diversity; Plant Form and Function; Animal Form and Function; Ecology; and Astrobiology.
