Safely Having Fun in the Sun

July is pretty sunny here in BG! While we all love some fun in the sun, the rays from the sun can be very harmful to our skin.  Sun exposure is one of the leading causes of skin damage and premature aging. Yikes! One way to keep yourself safe is to use a daily sunscreen.  Another way, is to educate yourself and others on sun safety.  Come to the CRC and check out our SunWise teaching kit to learn all about teaching sun protection with students.  Hope everyone has some safe fun in the sun this week!  #sunscreen #sunsafety #summer #funinthesun #putonyoursunscreenhoney #thanksmom #beatthesunburn #BGSU #CRC Written by CRC Student, Rachel 


Perimeter and Area Dice Game

It’s #MathMagicalMonday! You know what that means! We have a fun math idea or game that you can play with your kids or students. Today, we found this game where students roll dice and use the numbers they rolled to draw the perimeter of a rectangle or square on a grid and figure out the area to write in the middle of the shape. Check out more about the game here: But that is not all. Did you know that the CRC has dice and grid dry erase boards that you can check out? Yes, that’s right! We have all that you need to get started playing this game today. Come in and check it out.

Colorful Experiments

 Looking to bring color into your summer? What if we said you could do with the color black? Is black even a color? Click on the link for a colorful #ScientificSaturday science experiment, or come to the CRC to discover many Teaching Aids  and books about color!

For example, Mouse Paint is a great book to teach about color, starting with the three primary colors. When these playful mice discover three jars of paint, they can’t help but mix colors, dancing in swirled puddles of paint. The CRC not only has this in book form, but we also have a big book theme packet with manipulatives.
