Tenth graders investigate how energy is transferred from place to place. In this earth science lesson, 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 evaluate geology by completing a Venn diagram activity. In this sand lesson, 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.
Learners 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. Learners utilize a popsicle and ziplock bags to conduct a matter activity and then complete an assessment worksheet.
Students explore the concept that smaller rocks come from larger rocks that have been broken. In this waving goodbye to rocks instructional activity, 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.
Young scholars research earth science by writing a letter in class. In this topography activity, students identify the types of land forms which occur in nature and discuss how mountains and valleys are formed. Young scholars identify real life mountains and valleys, define vocabulary related to nature and write a descriptive letter about their favorite mountains and valleys.
Learners research biology by participating in a movement experiment. For this force lesson, students utilize a group of toys in class, some of which can be pushed and others can be pulled. Learners create a worm or centipede type object using the different toys attached together.
Ninth graders describe the energy transfer in endothermic and exothermic reactions. In 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.
Students evaluate geography by drawing an image in class. In this river lesson, students identify a list of vocabulary terms associated with bodies of water. Students identify how a river is formed and draw a picture of one including the entire anatomy of a river system.
