- Need a science ice breaker to get your kids mingling and talking together? Try Sea Ice and Glaciers. Your students can discover how melting sea ice and glaciers affect the level of the ocean (And how fun is it that this ice breaker actually involves ice?).

My company is big on safety. All employees take lessons and are tested on things like road safety, fire safety, office safety, and more. It keeps us safe on and off the job.
One of the safety videos I remember from many years back was on personal health and safety. I.e., keeping our own selves safe in common places, like the office. The video was graphic. It showed how a simple personal artifact (a wedding ring) could do a lot of damage to a person's finger and hand if it gets caught in a drawer. Necklaces, watches, earrings, and any type of jewelry can be hazardous in certain environments, like in a construction zone or oil rig. The video didn't say you should never wear any type of jewelry. But it did remind us to be aware of ourselves and our situations, and that in certain environments jewelry should not be worn.
Every Wednesday is Lego day in our house. After school, homework, and naps are done, my kids and I walk to our local library to take part in Lego Club. It's a simple concept: kids + Legos = fun. There's nothing more to it than that.
