Applied Science - Physics Pre-Lab
Students view a static electricity demonstration. In this Physics lesson plan, students compare static and current electricity. Students watch an electricity slide show and sing the Electricity song.
Applied Science - Physics Lab
Students explore electricity. In this Physics lesson, students investigate the origin of static electricity. Students compare static electricity to current electricity.
Applied Science - Physics Lab
Students investigate electricity. In this Physics lesson plan, students experiment with insulators and conductors of electricity. Students use batteries as the energy source for the experiment.
Applied Science -Physics (4A) Post Lab
Fourth graders explore the history of electricity. In this electricity lesson, 4th graders review the connection between electricity and magnetism. They do a research project on the history of electricity.
Applied Science - Physics (5B) Post Lab
Fifth graders analyze optical images. in this optical lesson, 5th graders look at how light reflects and refracts. They discuss different types of lenses and how they change the picture that is taken.
Applied Science - Technology (KA) Pre Lab
Students explore tools. In this tool activity, students see how tools and machines were invented to help people work easier. They see different types of simple machines such as wheel and axle, lever, and wedge.
Applied Science-Techonology Post Lab
Students study animals. In this machines and tools lesson, students study animals to figure out how various tools were created for humans to use. They are read the story An Elephant Never Forgets its Snorkel to help spark ideas. They discuss and share their thoughts as a class.
Applied Science - Technology (1B) Pre Lab
First graders explore simple machines. In this technology lesson, 1st graders review pulleys, levers, wedges, and ramps. They experiment with lifting items with and without these simple machines.
Applied Science - Technology (2A) Lab
Second graders experiment with simple machines. In this machine lesson plan, 2nd graders go to different labs to see examples of a lever, inclined plane, wedge, pulley, gears, and wheel and axle. They discuss how a machine makes work a lot easier.
Applied Science - Technology (3A) Pre Lab
Third graders discuss electric currents. In this circuit lesson plan, 3rd graders create a picture of a battery circuit and a light bulb. They show the positive and negative charge and the flow of electrons.
Applied Science - Technology (3A) Post Lab
Third graders discuss how energy is created. For this energy lesson, 3rd graders look at how a city receives energy and how it is made. They create their own generator using a pin wheel and pipe cleaners.
Applied Science - Technology (5A) Lab
Fifth graders explore electromagnetic waves and light. In this light lesson, 5th graders draw the parts of a wave of the electromagnetic spectrum. They compare a flashlight to a laser to see how the light looks when shined through different objects.
Applied Science -Technology (6B) Pre Lab
Sixth graders discuss how simple machines overcome friction. In this simple machine lesson, 6th graders review the parts of a plane and how they make up for gravity and friction. They roll different objects down an inclined board predicting which will be affected most by friction.
Applied Science - Built Environment (2) Pre Lab
Second graders review how our society affects nature. For this energy lesson, 2nd graders discuss the different ways that energy is collected. They review renewable and nonrenewable energy sources.
Applied Science - Built Environment (3) Pre Lab
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.
Applied Science - Built Environment (5) Pre Lab
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.
Applied Science - Built Environment (6) Lab
Sixth graders look at toys in space. In this gravity lesson, 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.
Applied Science - Science and Math Pre - Lab (Scientific Method)
Students examine science. In 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 students to answer.
Applied Science - Science and Math (Post Lab)
Students explore science. In this create science activity, students come up with their own science experiment. They use their basic knowledge of hypothesis and procedure to come up with an experiment. This activity includes background information and a variety of ways this assignment can be given.
Applied Science - Technology Pre - Lab (inventions)
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.
