We love doing science at the upper elementary level because 10- and 11-year-olds are so naturally curious and ready to learn about the world. These 5th grade science projects are great for whole-class experimentation or as a science fair project. Go ahead and give them a try!

If you’re on the hunt for home office ideas or are planning to redesign your current space, office wall colors are one of the first design elements to consider. First, plan out the size of your space, color scheme, and the overall look you want to achieve.
Don’t get stuck with outdated office decor or furniture you don’t absolutely love. This is especially true if you work from home, where creativity is a must-have. Finding a design you adore can take time, but with the right inspiration and motivational color palette, it doesn’t have to be a challenge.

You could have been a doctor! You should have been a doctor! Some of us are used to our family members telling us this as a joke at Thanksgiving and other family reunions.
However, some of our loved ones are more insistent than others and use every occasion to remind us that we didn’t go to med school and are, instead, pursuing our dreams of, say, becoming a DJ.
One of the best hypothetical ways to make your kid guilty that they’re not a doctor? Criticizing them on an airplane for not pursuing healthcare as a vocation when a flight attendant asks if there’s a doctor on board. And that’s how the ‘Is there a doctor on this flight?’ meme was born, all thanks to Twitter user Laura Gao who seems to have started the trend.
We’ve collected some of the best ‘Is there a doctor on this flight?’ memes and we hope you enjoy them. Upvote your faves and let us know which ones you enjoyed and w...
If you asked me a year ago what word best described my parenting, it might have been “rigid.” Being a preschool teacher for so many years had made me a little too good at setting limits and following through. It got to the point where every day with my 3-year-old son was a repeat cycle of tears and unnecessary power struggles. I found myself thinking that I couldn’t let go of one single thing because then, “He’d win.”
But one day it hit me… at what point did he and I stop being on the same team? At what point did I start controlling him instead of guiding him? Of course I should want him to “win.” I want him to win at solving problems. To win at loving others unconditionally. Most importantly, to win in our relationship.
Fast forward to now, and I’m viewing defiance and misbehavior in a whole new light.
For decades, anyone seeking guidance on how to lose weight has been pummeled with instructions on how they must do relentless cardio in order to do so.
The reality is, there has been a huge shift away from that notion.
Strength and weight training are now recognized [by most] as a better way to lose weight.
Don’t get me wrong. Cardio is necessary—and very good for you—and it should be included in our routines, but only doing cardio is not the best way to lose weight.
Or at least not the way to lose weight fast, and then keep it off.
In fact, an excellent non-diet way to lose weight is yoga.
Most people completely disregard yoga as an effective way of losing weight because they think it’s just a bunch of stretching and careful breathing.
And honestly, it can be that, if that’s what YOU want.
But the beauty of yoga is that it can be whatever you make ...

White minimalist decor is the height of cool and sophisticated refinement. With all excess removed and focus set firmly on functionality, the result is sharp stylish living spaces like these four pristine examples. We’ll take a wander around one flat and flawless living room with a hidden kitchen and hideaway TV/media wall, and discover a barely there bathroom. Next we’ll feel our way around the curves of a softly minimalist living room, in a white home decor scheme with some colourful relief. Third up is a vision of concrete, stone and terrazzo with warm natural infusions, finishing up last but not least in a solidly monochrome minimalist moment.
