Students investigate oceanography by painting sea life. In this crustacean lesson, students identify sea urchins in our ocean environments and describe the functionality of their spherical-shaped bodies. Students design their own sea urchins by painting a picture and making a collage.
Young scholars discuss how the final design for a product can affect its success. They work together to design and develop a better candy bad. They predict the volume and strength they need for the bag to be successful.
Students design and build a car that is capable of traveling across the floor quickly, and also up a steep ramp.
Students read a version of "The Three Little Pigs" and then work in small groups to design a wall. They use Legos to build the wall and subject their design to a strength test.
Young scholars design a boat model with simplified steam engine. In this ecology lesson, students compare renewable and nonrenewable energy sources. They determine the efficiency of their boat model.
Ninth graders investigate the functional relationship of different environmental phenomena. In this math lesson, 9th graders create models of various natural disasters. They use logarithmic and exponential functions to interpret population growth.
Research various types of bridge designs. Your class will be asked to consider what it would be like without bridges while learning about how they work. They will construct a model bridge based on given parameters. They then calculate cable circumferences, length and thickness. There are many activities with this plan including geometric shapes, trusses, and rubric for evaluation. This could easily be made into a unit.
Learners examine the style of an 18th-century compound microscope and its case. In this scientific design lesson plan, students look at Jacques Caffieri's, "Compound Microscope and Case" before comparing the design to a modern microscope. They design their own scientific or technological instrument using pencils, colored pencils, and drawing paper.
Using a miniature coral reef aquarium kit, young ecologists model this unique ecosystem. They research various coral reef organisms and their niches, and they culminate the project by working together to write a report. Use this activity as an enrichment when you are teaching an ecology unit to your life science learners.
Students investigate plant cells. In this multiple intelligences lesson, students engage in a variety of activities to foster an understanding of plant cells and how they work. Students read, write, observe, and role-play parts and functions of plant cells.
Eleventh graders investigate the reflective property and E-fields using mirrors. For this physics lesson, 11th graders investigate pivotal axel, parabola and used DLP technology to show the principles of Kinetic energy.
Explore the work of Charles and Ray Eames and design philosophy for three Eames' objects. Students complete image based discussion, create sketches of forms that interest them, and create their own images for a house of cards game. Finally, they research and suggest ways that USA can boost consumer production.
Students participate in a culminating activity for a unit on Energy and Simple Machines. They are challenged to incorporate simple machines in to a complex mechanical system. While designing and testing their machine they will also examine motions and forces as well as a transfer of energy hands-on.
Students are introduced to the biomechanical characteristics of helmets. They incorporate these characteristics into designs for helmets for various applications. They understand that using a bicycle helmet helps to protect the brain and neck during a crash. In order to do this effectively, helmets must have some sort of crushable material to absorb the shock of a collision and a strap system to ensure that the protection stays in place.
In this ammeter worksheet, students answer 13 questions about the design of ammeters and they mathematically analyze a circuit they design and build.
Learners design a powerplant to meet the needs of a certain city. In this algebra lesson plan, students work together to come up with a network system that will provide energy for x amount of citizen. The must be familiar with conversion of units.
Studens identify the properties of exponents. In this algebra lesson, students grapha nd solve equaitons of exponential functions. They add, subtract, multiply and divide using exponents.
Students use properties of exponents to solve equations. In this algebra lesson, students add, subtract, multiply and divide exponential functions. They graph and differentiate between exponential growth and decay.
Lower graders explore recursive patterns. They use a calculator to recognize, generate, and explore patterns during arithmetic explorations. The unit provides several assignments of an exploratory nature designed to assist in developing mathematical thinking and reasoning.
Students explore a new home and design some of its electrical features. They construct a model of the electrical features and consider accessibility for the handicapped into the room. In groups, students analyze the advantages and disadvantages of sources used to generate electricity. They write a letter to the mayor supporting their choice for an energy source.
