Students read an article and describe the scientific method.  In this scientific process lesson, students compare basic science and applied science. Students discuss ideas such as team work, application of an idea, how scientists answer problems and where their findings lead them. Students use note taking skills to record what they have read and discussed.
In this applying science worksheet, students are given 8 scrambled words to complete sentences about technology, machines and robots. Students answer 6 questions about the effects of technology on life span and the use of robots and machines in science.
Students identify and assess risks encountered on a daily basis. They examine their behavior and apply science process skills and higher order thinking skills in reducing or managing risks. They define the terms: risk, benefit, hazard, and probability.
In this nature of science and measurement worksheet, students answer 30 questions about experimental design, pure science vs. applied science, density, metric conversions and dimensional analysis.
In this nature of science worksheet, students identify four statements as "pure" or "applied" science and they read a short story about an experiment performed by a boy. They identify various components of the experiment including the variables, the hypothesis, the controls and the conclusion.
Students explore the basic process of natural selection and how people can manipulate that process today. The consequences of natural selection on daily life and the implications of evolutionary biology in basic and applied science is examined in this le
Students work together to discover the flow rates of faucets and rivers. They relate their results to engineering and applied science concepts. They make predictions on the flow rate of a nearby river in their local community.
Learners experiment with the combination of vinegar and baking soda. In this applied science lesson plan, future scientists compare qualitative and quantitative data collected from their exploration. Then they work together to analyze and interpret their data.
Young scholars investigate topology. In this Applied Science lesson students explore higher, more abstract mathematics using tangles. Young scholars make topologically related shapes.
Students examine fabric. In this Applied Science lesson, students look at the fibers of fabric through a microscope. Students compare and contrast a variety of fibers.
Learners construct paper. In this applied Science lesson, students create paper using lint. Learners investigate the different fibers in their homes.
Students explore the senses. In this Applied Science lesson, students investigate the items in "feely" boxes with their hands, both touching the items and shaking the boxes to hear the sound the items make. Students also smell and taste items.
Students utilize a balance scale. In this applied science lesson plan, students compare the weights of two objects using an elementary balance scale. Students balance the scale with weights to find how heavy an object is.
Create three dimensional objects in an applied science lesson. The goal is for your class to recognize, compare, and model shapes. Using cookie cutters and clay or play dough, they create models for three-dimensional shapes.
Young scholars explore optical illusions. In this Applied Science instructional activity, students view optical illusions and record the data of what they see. Young scholars graph the data that they collect.
Students make a prediction. In this applied science activity, students guess the number of items in a jar. Students create a bar graph to show the predictions and the actual amounts.
Students concoct glue. In this Applied Science lesson, students experiment with different amounts of flour and water to make their own glue. Students use their glue for a paper mache project.
Learners explore inventions. In this Applied Science lesson, students discuss the history of everyday objects and the invention of them. Learners illustrate and describe their own invention.
Scholars classify the sciences. Using applied science, they compare and contrast subfields of sciences. They compare qualitative versus quatitative. They discuss types of sciences and the meanings of the word roots of the names. 
Students find Fibonacci sequences. In this applied Science lesson, students solve Fibonacci sequence problems. Students explore the mathematical patterns of objects in nature.
