The class is presented with an image of a hand-carved leg. They act as art historians and hypothesize as to the purpose, nature, and creators of this amazing wooden leg. They compose journal entries from the point of view of an art historian describing different uses for the leg. Kids will have a lot of fun coming up with weird ways to use a wooden leg.
It rains and, as it does, the run-off makes the earth erode. Let learning about the wonders of erosion be fun and engaging with a hands-on experiment. The class will first read an informational passage describing what erosion is and the effects it has on the environment. They then make a model of erosion with dirt, rocks, and running water. The experiment is discussed and afterwards they each make a collage describing the process of erosion. 
Peanuts inspire this lesson about George Washington Carver, called The Peanut Wizard in the included informational text. Class members read about peanuts and George Washington Carver and create a timeline of his life. In addition, pupils plant peanuts and conduct an experiment. You might not meet every reading informational text standard that the resource lists.
Students assess what environmental conditions best contribute to preservation and mummification by participating in a multi-day 'apple mummification' lab.
The benefits of inquiry-based exploration can be attained in any classroom.
Using a graduated cylinder and triple beam balance, middle schoolers measure the volume and mass of four different liquids. They use the values to compute densities. In a separate activity, they experiment with Cartesian divers and learn how pressure affects density. 
Third graders utilize the scientific method to explain light and optics in this five lessons unit. Through experimentation and discussion, 3rd graders canvass the concepts of light traveling, reflection and refraction.
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.
Second graders examine the physical characteristics of the different states of matter. In this chemistry lesson, 2nd graders observe how matter changes from one phase to another. They classify substances according to its type of matter.
Learners explore color, light, refraction and reflection.  In this light instructional activity students measure solar position and compare it to time.
With the right projects, summer learning can be fun and motivating.
Students apply the scientific method to the act of creating a new salad dressing. In this scientific process instructional activity, students use the process to create personal salad dressing from the materials provided.
Students discover how magnets work. In this magnets lesson, students experiment with magnets to form hypotheses about how they work. Students then write about their hypothesis and verbalize their understanding of magnets.
Students explore the steps in the scientific method process. In this science lesson, students identify warning signs that someone is in an abusive dating relationship. They evaluate the credibility of information sources.
Pupils watch a video on the Alaskan native ways. They examine how knowledge was passed down from elders and how the Alaskans lived with harmony in nature.  Learners then prepare and present a classroom science fair project based on their own lives. 
Students as a class create a fountain using both coke soda, and mentos candy. For this science lesson, students test which combination of coke and mentos products produce the tallest fountain. Students use the scientific method to track their experiment. Students compare their data using mean, median, mode and range. When the experiment is done, students reflect back on their work and answer teacher provided questions.
Learners participate in an extended laboratory research to experience how scientific information is obtained, upon which we build scientific knowledge and understanding.
First graders explore completing experiments through the scientific method.
Students distinguish between scientific and everyday meaning of key terms: theory, hypothesis, law, fact, law-and use in context. They recognize the variables that affect observation, data collection, and interpretation.
Fifth graders define vocabulary terms, identify the characteristics of a pillbug, and create a dichotomous key. Then they examine the pillbugs and make observations and record these observations. Finally, 5th graders observe specific behavior of pillbugs and formulate a conclusion to their initial hypothesis and construct graphs that reflect data.
