Learners create a presentation about acid rain's effect on rocks. For this earth science lesson, students explain the formation of acid rain. They discuss the effect of elevated pH on various water organisms .
Sixth graders explain the stages of the rock cycle. In this earth science lesson, 6th graders classify rocks according to their type. They create a model of the rock cycle using different methods and present this in class.
Tenth graders investigate how energy is transferred from place to place. In this earth science lesson plan, 10th graders hypothesize which temperature data logger displays greater-than-mean temperature. They collect data over a period of 3 weeks and graph them to analyze the trend.
Students examine the weight of rocks and find that different types of rocks have different weights.  For this rock lesson, students work in pairs and examine rocks with a hand lens and a balance scale.  Students compare the weights of various rocks.
Eighth graders discuss how energy transforms from one form to another. For this physics lesson, 8th graders explore different lab station set up and explain how each materials convert energy. They list common objects that use energy to operate.
Students study the rock cycle and how sedimentary rocks form.  In this rock lesson students create a model and a PowerPoint presentation. 
Third graders investigate caves. In this erosion instructional activity, 3rd graders develop new vocabulary, write a report about caves and illustrate their knowledge of caves. Students create models of caves and record their observations.
Students evaluate geology by completing a Venn diagram activity. In this sand activity, students identify where sand comes from, how it forms on beaches and under water and why there are different types of sand. Students define a list of vocabulary terms, perform a sand sifting exercise and complete a Venn diagram worksheet based on two sand samples.
Students explore the concept of physical properties using a Venn diagram. In this classifying lesson, students compare provided objects by shape, size, and color. They then explore collecting and organizing objects of their own. Students are assessed by classifying soil samples at the conclusion of the lesson.
Students identify earth science by conducting a temperature experiment in class. In this water properties lesson, students define matter related terms and identify how temperature can change the form of water. Students utilize a popsicle and ziplock bags to conduct a matter activity and then complete an assessment worksheet.
Ninth graders classify different rocks according to their properties. In this earth science lesson, 9th graders explain the processes in the rock cycle. They write a creative story about a rock going through each cycle.
Students examine properties of different elements. In this chemistry lesson, students organize these elements into a new periodic table. They present their work in class.
Tenth graders observe the change in temperature in different solutions. In this physical science lesson, 10th graders explain the flow of energy in the system. They determine what role salt played in the process.
Students discuss books they are reading during the semester through e-mail with other students. They complete a reading interest survey, e-mail their partner weekly, and read and suggest six novels by the end of the semester.
Students explore the concept that smaller rocks come from larger rocks that have been broken. In this waving goodbye to rocks lesson, students examine the rock cycle as it pertains to weathering of larger rocks. Students are introduced to vocabulary related to the topic of rocks and work in a group using marshmallow treats to explore the breakdown of rocks.
Students research earth science by writing a letter in class. In this topography lesson, students identify the types of land forms which occur in nature and discuss how mountains and valleys are formed. Students identify real life mountains and valleys, define vocabulary related to nature and write a descriptive letter about their favorite mountains and valleys.
Eighth graders create a scale model of the solar system. In this earth science lesson, 8th graders calculate the number of grains of rice needed to get to Earth from other planets if they are arranged end to end. They complete their science journals after the activity.
Students observe what objects dissolve in water and how their shape is changed. In this dissolving lesson plan, students record data for what they see. Students test syrup, blocks, tissue paper, cocoa mix, and more.
Students research biology by participating in a movement experiment. In this force lesson, students utilize a group of toys in class, some of which can be pushed and others can be pulled. Students create a worm or centipede type object using the different toys attached together.
Ninth graders describe the energy transfer in endothermic and exothermic reactions. For this physical science lesson, 9th graders observe reactions in the lab and classify them according to the two types mentioned. Given a set of chemical equations, they classify them as either  endothermic and exothermic.
