Semicolon, colon, and dashes: Are you using them correctly? From Passnownow, a Nigerian "good site".
Good explanations and examples. Plenty more grammatical advice elsewhere on this site!

 

A Brief History of Pi (16:45 Youtube video) by
Simon Clark, Esquire that covers Pi through the
ages. Really impressive the way various ancients used
geometry to kludge Pi out to dozens, then hundreds
of decimal places. Entertaining and truthful. One of
many academic videos by Simon Clark.

How a Supervolcano Made the Cenozoic’s Coolest Fossils
from PBS Eons
"One of the most dynamic, transformative, and potentially dangerous features in North America
is also responsible for some of the continent’s most amazing fossil deposits. It’s a supervolcano
we now call Yellowstone." 9:38 video explains the migrating Yellowstone Hot Spot and the trail
it has blazed across the northwest USA; now called the Snake River Valley. Did the continent
move, or the hot spot? Discover the Ashfall Fossil Beds Monument in Nebraska. What killed
all those animals? Kind of similar to Pompeii.

Iditarod: The Last Great Race by Deb Micolichek
This is a thematic unit for 3rd Grade/Grade 3. It would doubtless work with Grade 4 as well.
There are 13 unit blocks in a 3X4 grid with one left over. Block #1 is a review of prior knowledge.
Some blocks link to videos, some blocks link to sites, one is a photo of Balto, one is a map,
Block 9 is the official site, Block 10 is the Scholastic site, and the last site is a bibliography.
This site is from 2014 so two URLs had to be updated (the link to the Malamute video and the
link to the Anchorage Daily News). Other than that this old site works fine.

Like other lizards and snakes, monitor lizards smell with their tongues.
Komodo Dragons are the largest living monitor lizards. Are monitor lizards
the ancestors of the mosasaurs? Research suggests mosasaurs
came from monitor lizards. Snakes may well have evolved from primitive
mosasaurs. "Monitor lizards, snakes, and mosasaurs all appear to be closely
related." - qfak.com
All lizards, snakes, and "worm lizards" are squamates (click the link to
learn more about squamates). Tuataras, crocodiles/archosaurs, and turtles
are not squamates, but they are reptiles just the same.

A stamp from the Faroe Islands, featuring Gram and Grani.
Gram is Sigurd’s magic sword which is infinitely sharp.
Grani is Sigurd’s magic tireless horse, a gift of Odin,
son of Odin’s horse Slepnir Eight Legs. Cool.
FØROYAR means Faroe Islands, where they speak Faroese,
which is a brother language of Norwegian, Icelandic, Danish,
and Swedish; descended like them from Old Norse.

The Mummy Maker game from the University of Chicago. Not the same as the old BBC Mummy Maker but
similar. Easier, and a good way to prep for the BBC game. PS Mummies are dead. If they weren't dead when
the mummy makers started, they for sure were dead when the job was done!

Astounding 10 Minute 3D Animation Features The Center Of Rome In All Its Glory In 320 AD
Touted as the most detailed 3D rendering of the ancient metropolis, Danila Loginov has presented his third and final
promo of the ‘eternal city’ of Rome at its architectural peak, circa 320 AD (watch the first and second animated promo).
This time around, running over 10 minutes of awesomeness, the animation video (part of the Rome in 3D project)
features a range of ancient landmarks such as the temple of Divine Augustus, Basilica Argentaria, the baths of Trajan and
Titus to the Colosseum (along with the statue of Colossus Solis), arches of Titus and Constantine, and Ludus Magnus.

Nancy Grace Roman, 'Mother Of Hubble' Space Telescope, Has Died, At Age 93


This is an NPR article and obituary. "Roman was one of the first female executives at NASA,
where she served as the agency's first chief of astronomy. Known as the "Mother of Hubble,"
for her role in making the Hubble Space Telescope a reality, Roman worked at NASA for nearly
two decades." She convinced NASA that a telescope out in space would be a great advance.
"In the Lego set, her figurine stands next to a miniature Hubble Space Telescope — the instrument
that brought the world dazzling images of the stars she had loved so well as a child."

How a long-forgotten virus could help us solve the antibiotics crisis by Alexander Belcredi
Viruses have a bad reputation -- but some of them could one day save your life, says
biotech entrepreneur Alexander Belcredi. In this fascinating talk, he introduces us to phages,
naturally-occurring viruses that hunt and kill harmful bacteria with deadly precision, and shows
how these once-forgotten organisms could provide new hope against the growing threat of
antibiotic-resistant superbugs. from TED-ED
