HILLARY L.: Hi, I'm Hillary, and I'm standing in front of my local library. I'm going to talk to you about... columns!
Columns help keep up heavy structures like buildings and houses. In fact, in the ruins of ancient Greece, all that's left is the columns.
Columns are made out of compressing strong material like concrete, steel or wood. They come in all sorts of sizes. The top is the capital, the middle is the shaft, and the bottom is the base.
Sometimes they are hidden behind walls. And sometimes they're out in the open, like these. Or they can be used for decorative or monumental purposes. That's what I know about columns
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
