|Summary:||At the Library of Congress, science teachers can find a list of useful science resources for elementary, middle, high school, and college levels. Highlights from the LOC's Science reference Services include Everyday Mysteries sheets, which provide answers to kid-friendly questions such as these: Why do we yawn? How does sunscreen work? What causes the sound of thunder? In addition, the Science Reference Services offers Research Guides for many disciplines, including aeronautics, astronomy, biology, chemistry, environmental science, geography, and health and medicine. Other popular resources identified in the list include The Teaching With LOC blog, which has numerous articles about using primary sources in science classrooms, and articles from the Newspaper and Periodicals Reading Room's Topics in Chronicling America page, which presents historical newspaper articles, many of which address science-related topics such as Darwin, Nicola Tesla, the invention of the telephone, Yosemite National Park, and Halley's Comet. In addition, the Library's Science, Technology, and Business Division has brought many speakers to the LOC, including NASA scientists; many of these programs were webcast and are archived online. The webcasts have addressed topics as diverse as space weather and black holes to the surprising history of birdfeeding.|
