Dewey and Chemistry: The Water Cycle Revisited
Students undertake a series of experiments related to the water cycle. All experiments use John Dewey's experiential philosophy as their bases. Each lesson plan is clearly based on philosophy and attempts to be relevant.
Guide To Science Experiments
For this science experiment worksheet, students first study 18 important terms. Then students read paragraphs describing 6 different experiments, and complete questions which take them through the scientific process.
Fun With Food
Students participate in hands-on scientific experiments relying solely on household kitchen materials.
How Much Is Too Much? How Little Is Too Little?
Students perform a series of experiments which show that plants require nutrients in certain quantities. They also cooperatively read materials on the nutrient requirements of plants, fertilizers, composting, and soil management, and students identify plant nutrient deficiencies using a specialized key. Students apply their knowledge to vote on mock ballot propositions that relate to agricultural and urban water issues.
Acid Mine Drainage
Students use cabbage, backing soda, cobblestones, and more to test the acid in the water. In this acid mine damage lesson plan, students complete 13 experiments to test and treat acid.
Inquiry into Infectious Disease: It's a Germy World After All
Students choose a question from a given list and develop an investigation about it. In this biology lesson, students analyze bacterial growth by carrying out a guided experiment. They present their findings in class.
Health Issues Related to Space Experiments
Young scholars participate in a science lesson that integrates connections between health issues on Earth and how those issues are related to studies conducted on the International Space Station. T
A Tasty Experiment
Learners work together to determine if smell is important to being able to recongize food by taste. They try different foods with different textures and hold their nose. They create a graph of their results.
Cooking Up the Scientific Method
First graders identify the different steps of the scientific method. In this life science lesson, 1st graders apply this method when conducting a series of hands-on activities. They collect data and write observations in their journals.
Introduction to Magnetism and Electronics
Young scholars are introduced to the concepts of magnetism and electronics. As a class, they walk through the steps of the scientific method and define new vocabulary. In groups, they are given a bag of objects and they are to separate them into magnetic and non-magnetic. They also discover on a basic level how electronics operate.
Introduction to Lumbriculus variegatus
Students conduct two set experiments on Lumbriculus worms and create a third experiment of their own. The first of the two set experiments allows students to observe regeneration of the worms while the second allows students to test the effects of nicotine on its heart rate.
Learners use the Scientific Method steps to complete an experiment on various brands of soap to determine their floating capabilities. In this scientific method lesson plan, students write a hypothesis about the ability of various soap bars to float. Learners make their observations, and then record the information. Students read the history of Ivory soap and write a journal entry about the experiment.
Students see evidence of chemical reaction and follow the scientific method to hypothesize, observe, and reach conclusions. They conduct a series of egg based experiments such as forming crystals and complete journal activities as a reflection.
Primary Biological Content Area Covered
Students use the scientific method to make predictions about mold growth. In this fungus lesson, students use worksheets to help them illustrate predictions and graph mold growth from white to wheat bread. Students first hypothesize which bread will grow more mold and test the hypothesis in an experiment. Students measure the mold on a daily basis and record the data. Students analyze the results.
Local Four Minute Men Committee
Students research the "Third Liberty Loan" pamphlet. In this discussion lesson, students read the pamphlet and discuss their opinions. Students answer questions and discuss main points of the document.
Virtual Science Fair
Students study the scientific method and conduct an experiment using this method. in this experimental lesson students develop their own science experiment.
The Generation Gap
Students a hands on sociological experiment. They create a hypothesis about the attitudinal differences between generations on a particular subject, Students test their hypothesis with a survey and chart their findings. Results are presented in class.
The Lipstick Experiment
In this scientific method worksheet, students read "The Lipstick Experiment" and then complete the 2 student tasks on the worksheet. They then answer the 5 questions regarding what they just read. The answers are on the last page.
Wings of Imagination
A ten-instructional activity study of the history of flight awaits you and your charges. Learners get to do all sorts of great activities: they construct hot air baloons and scale models of the Wright Brother's Flyer, develop an understanding of the physics behind flight, and analyze data from a series of experiments using other things that fly. Outstanding!
Paper Airplane Science
Fifth graders recognize the need to follow the scientific method carefully and be aware of variables in experiments. In this airplane activity, 5th graders design and test an airplane, and complete a data sheet. Students retest five times introducing a different variable. Students graph results.
