Second graders review how our society affects nature. In this energy lesson, 2nd graders discuss the different ways that energy is collected. They review renewable and nonrenewable energy sources. 
Third graders discuss types of transportation. In this transportation lesson, 3rd graders discuss common ways people get around and the effect of electric energy on our society. They write a paragraph about different kinds of transportation. 
Fifth graders look at the impact of sound and noise. In this sound lesson, 5th graders review the decibel and common sounds along with their noise levels. They complete a worksheet about the different sounds that one might hear during the day and how it can impair hearing. 
Sixth graders look at toys in space. In this gravity instructional activity, 6th graders make predictions about what different toys will do with zero gravity. They watch a space video and see what happens to these toys in space.
Learners examine science. For this scientific method lesson, students are introduced to what every experiment contains (hypothesis, critical thinking) and how an experiment is conducted. They watch a demonstration and then work independently on a series of questions related to scientific method. This lesson includes background information and a set of questions for learners to answer.
Students explore science. In this create science lesson plan, students come up with their own science experiment. They use their basic knowledge of hypothesis and procedure to come up with an experiment. This lesson plan includes background information and a variety of ways this assignment can be given.
Students read the book Icky, Sticky Gloop by Morgan Matthes. In this scientific exploration lesson, students compare the fictional character in the book with Benjamin Franklin (both are inventors). They discover why and how inventions are created as a class through discussions generated from reading the book.
Young scholars explore magnification. In this science skills observation lesson, students make a hand lens using a wire loop and a small amount of water.
Second graders create a graph about TV watching. In this bar graph lesson, 2nd graders make a hypothesis about how much TV 2nd graders watch per week. They record their TV watching for a week and bring it to school to create a class graph. 
Students explore magnification. In this scientific observation skills lesson, students observe sea life items and draw pictures of what they observe. Students predict which lens will have the strongest magnification when given three different scientific tools. Students describe their sea life items under different magnification, and compare their observations with those of their classmates.
Students consider the senses. In this sight and touch lesson, students discover what it is like to function like a person who is blind. They work in groups and individually on various activities to experience this condition. This lesson includes background information.
Students investigate how something at home uses physics to work. For this practical physics lesson, students develop a theory of their own to conclude how an object might work. This lesson plan includes a worksheet.
Students explore physics. In this magnetism lesson, students attempt to make a magnet out of a iron rod. They observe the teacher complete the procedure first and then try it themselves.
Students study science. In this efficiency lesson, students explore different forms of energy and compare them to determine which works the best. They work independently to create a collage of different energy sources (using magazine cutouts) and then share them with the class.
Young scholars examine physics. In this air movement lesson, students conduct an experiment that shows how air moves based on the pressure it's under. They watch the teacher complete the procedure and then try it on their own in a small group. This lesson should come after the previous lab on fluid motion.
Pupils examine electricity. In this electrical conduction lesson, students create a quiz board (circuit board). They work in small groups to construct the circuit board and come up with questions/answers for the quiz portion. This lesson includes vocabulary and a list of materials needed to make the boards.
Students examine transportation. In this train design lesson, students study how trains work and how to efficiently design a track by working with an electric train set. As a class they compare various types of trains and work independently on an activity to design a track to best serve a community. This lesson does not include the activity sheets it mentions.
Students study communication. In this telegraph instructional activity, students examine Morse code and the composition of an elementary telegraph circuit. They listen to a presentation and try to create Morse Code messages on a worksheet. This instructional activity includes background information and instructions on how to make a model of a telegraph.
Set up stations around your science lab to introduce youngsters to different equipment. They examine a beaker, graduated cylinder, ruler, balance, and thermometer. The said worksheet is not included, but you will find a few useful tips for putting this introductory lab exercise together.
