Young scholars complete a KWL chart on Albert Einstein. After they read an article, they discover more about his iconic status and how future scientists view him. In groups, they create trading cards about Einstein and another scientist of interest to them and write a job description looking for the next Einstein.
In this online interactive history quiz worksheet, students respond to 50 multiple choice questions about Albert Einstein. Students may submit their answers to be scored.
Students investigate the concept of the Einstein's Theory of Relativity while conducting research using the internet and following the outline of the objectives to guide the information search. The lesson includes background information for the teacher to use.
In this famous person worksheet, students read a passage about Albert Einstein and then complete a variety of in-class and homework activities to support comprehension, including partner interviews, spelling, cloze, synonym matches, and scrambled sentences.
Learners examine why Einstein rescinded his German citizenship when he was a teenager. They examine what aspects of German life did Einstein disagree with in his early years.
I wish they had videos like this when I was in high school! Comprehensive, interesting, and visually stimulating, this video is sure to give your class what they need to start a unit on Einstein's Theory of Relativity. Several concrete everyday examples of relativity make this a relevant concept learners are sure to understand.
Learners read a letter from Albert Einstein to FDR. This letter contains blanks, learners must look up each of the twelve words, define them, and then use then to complete Einstein's letter. When they are finished they can read a note that began the infamous Manhattan Project. 
Here it is, the fourth component true to Einstein's Theory of Relativity. The aspects of gravity and acceleration are presented as they relate to the theory of relativity. This video sums up how gravity, acceleration, time dilation, and length contraction work together with the curve of space-time to describe gravity and the speed of light.
Time dilates, contracts, is relative, and can travel? Yes, all these components of Einstein's Theory of Relativity have been validated in the scientific community through extensive experimentation. What have they learned? Discover space-time, the speed of time and light, and the concept of length contraction. A great video for any high school physics class!
Is time-travel possible? Einstein thought it was! Explore how time changes, how it works in terms of physics, and how it is linked to space to create space-time. This is a great video that explains the concept of light speed and time in a way learners in grades 8-12 will be able to understand.
What does the EM stand for in terms of physics? Learners are introduced to the EM, Einstein's relativity, light years, and the speed of light in terms of relativity. Good examples and concrete visuals guide viewers through the complex notion of time dilation and relativity.
Part one of this short two-part series begins with a review of Einstein's theories and what they mean to the world as we know it. This clip delves into the "Beyond Einstein" program which NASA created to further Einstein's theories. This program uses theory, technology, and definitive scientific evidence to better understand the universe.
Learners explore historical figures by reading a biography in class. For this genius thinkers lesson, students read the nonfiction book Albert Einstein: The Life and identify his accomplishments. Learners define vocabulary in the book and answer study questions based on Einstein.
Students consider Einstein's theories of Relativity. In this physics lesson, students learn the questions that led Einstein to his theories. Students then create "Einsteinian Thought Experiments" of their own. This lesson includes 3 videos and 1 interactive activity.
Welcome to the companion Web site to the NOVA program "Einstein Revealed," originally broadcast in October, 1996. This two-hour special presents a penetrating profile of Albert Einstein, who contributed more than any other scientist to our moder
Young scholars research well-known and lesser-known facts about Albert Einstein. They organize their information and write a report on Einstein's life, work, and philosophies. Students create colorful bas-relief mask images to honor Einstein's contributions.
Students study the history and scientific contributions of Albert Einstein. In this Albert Einstein lesson plan, students learn his history, research his scientific contributions, create a timeline of him and his work, and create a biographical display like a museum.
Students visualize a universe with fewer than three spatial dimensions. They consider how more than three spatial dimensions could exist in the universe.
Young scholars study and research the life of Albert Einstein. They focus on the extent Albert Einstein catalyzed and criticized President Harry S. Truman's decision to drop the atomic bomb on Japan during WWII. Students answer a series of questions on this topic in writing.
In this famous person worksheet, students answer 10 multiple choice questions about the life and times of Albert Einstein. They answer questions about his childhood, first jobs and scientific theories.
