With a little imagination, one could use nearly everything (modified of course) for classroom teaching I would think. You should have seen the volcano I constructed from scratch while I was in H.S. Flames, real molten lava, smoke, and lots of white sparks. My Sci teacher was impressed (of course, we "lit" it out in the parking lot LOL)

I mean, one could use most of the instructables in one way or another, for the classroom.

I tried to classify them to make the collection more "user friendly" ... Though, maybe, some of them could be put in one or several category ... or some are in the wrong category. Would you, please, give it a look and tell me how I could improve this list ? Also, I don't know where to put the tow last ones ...

To be picky, Electricity & Electrostatics, Magnetism, Optics, and Sound are all branches of Physics. Maybe those particular two could be classed as "Instruments" or "Measuring". The "Ice" one could go in chemistry, or start a "materials" classification, and the hovercraft could start an "investigation" classification (in UK science classes, general investigative skills are taught as a fourth branch of science, along with physics, chemistry and biology).

Thanks Kiteman :-)

I will try to follow this model when the collection will grow.
