Middle schoolers will explore frieze patterns. A frieze pattern is a mathematical concept to classify designs on two-dimensional surfaces, which are repetitive in one direction, based on the symmetries in the pattern. They will explore examples of frieze patterns in architecture and art, and create an original design using a frieze pattern.
Students investigate simple machines. In this simple machines lesson plan, students study how simple machines work. Students determine the function of various simple machines.
Students explore how art reflects culture and history. They examine everyday life experiences in various countries. Students design a mixed media composition. They create a class presentation.
Students solve problems using patterns. In this algebra lesson, students identify the relation, domain and range of a function. They graph functions using coordinate pairs.
Students examine energy, where it comes from and the different fuels that are used.  In this energy lesson students design an energy infrastructure using a renewable energy source. 
Students view ceramic vessels from different time periods and cultures, and discuss their meanings, functions, and original contexts.
Fifth graders hypothesize and design an experiment to study the relationship between a block weight and the number of washers it takes to pull a block across various surfaces. Students graph results and apply their findings to a practical situation.
Students observe the design of buildings, either first-hand within their communities or with photographs. The design relief tiles representing buildings studied and use the vocabulary of design elements and construction materials used in the buildings they are representing.
Students recognize that staghorn coral helps reef growth in the Caribbean.  In this Coral Reef lesson plan, students design a habitat model using various art materials to explain how staghorn coral helps the reef grow. Students share their artworks using correct art vocabulary.
This is comprehensive lesson that considers many aspects of quadratic functions. It includes using factoring, completing the square and the use of the quadratic formula for finding the zeros of the function (including imaginary roots). It also reverses the whole process by looking at either different graphs of quadratic functions or zeros that are given and challenges the learner to derive the function. This lesson provides an excellent review for the second year algebra student or a multi-lesson unit for the more novice student.
Students design objects in the Museum of Modern Art's collection of simple machines. In this simple machines lesson, students explore the machine age in the MoMA's design collection. Students identify simple machines and the elements in creating innovative designs. Students complete image based discussions, geometric beauty activity, and tool activity.
Students examine and explore various line, color, and movement elements in artwork. They view and discuss examples of abstract artwork, and create their own original abstract design that tells the story of a road trip.
Students generalize about a variety of designs of inventions. Students respond to a variety of visual designs. Students become aware of the multitude of design variations in everyday objects.
Students create a design for a school garden. In this garden design lesson, students analyze what plants grow best in their school's climate and work in teams to design a garden. Students measure the existing space, determine the planting zone, and draw a scale replica for the garden. Students research other garden designs before completing their garden design.
Students examine and discuss the painting, Cat and Bird, by Paul Klee. They identify the various types of lines, shapes, and colors in the painting, and design and create finger puppet versions of the animals from the painting.
Third graders explore the structural composition of buildings and houses. In this math lesson, 3rd graders explain how architecture is related to mathematics. They create a blueprint of a structure with at least three different spaces.
Students study the art work of aboriginalists and create art work of their own to demonstrate an understanding of the art form. In this art lesson plan, students create 3D art and experiment with color combinations.
Students create self-portraits using prior artistic knowledge and personal experiences. Emphasis is placed on the works of Albrecht Durer, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Romare Bearden, and Chuck Close for inspiration.
Learners identify the  basic function of the lobes in the brain.  In this memory lesson students complete a lab activity on how fast they can react. 
Students face the challenges of building big, functional structures, like bridges, domes and skyscrapers. They turn their talents to satisfying clients who have hired them to design their new home.
