Geology whizzes observe the effects of change within a model of a watershed. They place replica waste dumps within the models and note the path that the waste takes as water passes through. This detailed lesson plan provides teacher narrative, instructions for building the watershed model, discussion questions, and more! If you have the time for this elaborate hands-on experience, it will be worth your while!
Advanced chemistry kids experiment with the freezing and boiling points of various aqueous solutions. They also prepare a presentation of the kinetics of solution formation and structure of the matter involved. This resource provides you, as the teacher, with detailed laboratory instructions as well as extensive background information. You will need to design laboratory sheets so that learners will have instructions on-hand.
Students investigate the friction between tires and the road and how it affects the movement of cars while driving. They discuss and define friction, experiment with sandpaper and wax paper to determine which material provides the least and most friction, and explore the theme of conflict in literature.
Students make spinners to investigate rotational inertia, rotational speed, angular momentum, and velocity. They make two sets of spinners that have different mass distributions and shapes. They complete a worksheet while experimenting to determine the design of the spinner that will spin the longest.
Students solve problems involving ratio and proportion. In this algebra lesson, students analyze the currencies found in different countries. They create formulas to convert between the different currencies and use ratio and proportion to find the equivalent cost of an item.
Students discover the types of batteries and their uses. They experience static electricity by rubbing glass jars and using it to raise their hair. After discussing the importance of recycling batteries and using ones that are rechargeable, they build homemade wet cells based on the Voltaic cell.
Students explore careers in modern industry. In this industry lesson, students take a look at the car industry. Students brainstorm things they feel are important for a high quality car to have and list them on a car template. Students watch United Streaming videos and participate in class discussion.
