Sixth graders plan a trip for a family of four choosing their travel plan by studying maps to decide upon a route and visiting Websites to get airline and travel schedules. They use ratios and proportions as well as converting fractions to decimals to solve problems.
Summarize how government policies and changes in consumer demand contributed to a decline in the rail industry during the 20th century and identify key factors that are helping the rail industry prosper. Learners give an ample amount of examples of how government policies have helped and hurt market participants.
High school physicists demonstrate Bernoulli's Principle by blowing on different items and finding that they do not move in the expected direction! They apply Bernoulli's equation to the flight of an airplane. This well-organized lesson even includes differentiation ideas for English language learners, special needs situations, and advanced students.
Students investigate the question: "How does a hot air balloon work?" They build small hot air balloons ans then lauch them. Students discuss how they think a hot air balloon floats. Pupils are introduced to the use of models as a tool for comprehending.
Students investigate design and the correct use of technology. For this chemistry lesson, students investigate the Bernoulli Principle using hands on bubble making. They link the principle that keeps the bubble aloft to the BP principle.
Young scholars study various aspects of air. In this science lesson plan, students discover that air occupies space, understand the visual effects of air, and explain how air exerts force.
Learners read various novels and articles about the contributions of the Wright Brothers. Individually, they are tested on their comprehension of the material and discuss. In groups, they research the role of the people in their life and the mechanics of flight. They determine how work by other people such as Da Vinci and Langley helped make this dream of flying a reality.
In this biology activity, students examine the process of respiration and specifically look at the biochemistry of gas exchange at the alveoli.
Students examine the many types of electromagnetic waves, the concept of an EM wave, how James Clerk Maxwell proposed a slight modification of the equations of electricity, Heinrich Hertz and his radio-frequency, wavelengths, and light emission.
Students research women who made history in development of different forms of transportation, including boats, railroads, automobiles, airplanes, and space shuttles, and create timeline/collage depicting some of their contributions.
Investigate the sinking of the Titanic with young scholars. They will read actual documentation from the Titanic and answer questions. They will then draw conclusions from the pictures they see and information they read.
Students investigate how animals adapt to use its senses to identify foods that are nutritious or noxious. They determine how they associate foods with other things such as birthdays. They discuss the role of the nervous system in the body's ability to identify how foods taste, smell, and look like. They complete a taste experiment.
Students examine the differences between weight and mass. Using meter sticks, they measure the deflection of aluminum rods after bending one end. They also experiment with books connected by rubber bands and paperclips to demonstrate Newton's second law of physics.
Learners determine location by using longitude and latitude. They measure to the minute longitude and latitude of a place and select a body of land and determine its location. They approximate time zones by using every 15 degrees of longitudinal change to represent 1 hr.
Eighth graders examine the reasons for the growth of cities in North American. Using the internet, they research the causes and effects of the Industrial Revolution and determine if the growth of cities is a sign of progress. They analyze the idea of Manifest Destiny and the machines that changed society in a political and personal way.
Students research the development of the steam engines. For this US history lesson, students analyze the impact of this invention to civilization. They discuss the events leading to the growth and development of different cities.
Students examine the Spirit of St. Louis and read about its history in the first transatlantic flight. They also analyze the life of Lindbergh with his successes and hardships. They also discuss the implications of the first transatlantic flight.
Students conduct an experiment about air volume, density, and pressure. In this air instructional activity, students discuss air, and how it moves. They make predictions about what will happen during the balloon and string experiment. They document the results of the experiment using drawings or models, and participate in races with the balloons.
Second graders examine matter, what it is and what the different states are. In this matter lesson students view The Magic School Bus Meets Molly Cule and answer questions.
Tenth graders differentiate pandemic and epidemic. For this health science lesson, 10th graders analyze how HIV and AIDS affect different countries. They construct and interpret different types of graphs.
