Biotechnology Laboratory Research
Learners participate in an extended laboratory research to experience how scientific information is obtained, upon which we build scientific knowledge and understanding.
Students access the Internet to gather information. They record their observations of African habitats. They create either an electronic slideshow or mural to present a science experiment.
Water Pressure Blaster
Third graders complete an experiment to introduce them to the concept of water pressure. In this water pressure lesson plan, 3rd graders create pressure in a water bottle and observe the force of water that is created.
Simple Circuit: Electric Currents and Circuits
Through inquiry and exploration, 4th graders will learn and understand the functions of open and closed circuits. They will break into 2 groups, define vocabulary, hypothesize how to light a bulb, then test their hypothesis 4 different ways using open and closed circuits. This sounds like a fun lab that will get kids into the scientific process.
The Beauty of Number Patterns
Teaching your child about patterns can be a fun and motivating experience.
O Captain! My Captain - Part 3
Heroic Trading Cards? Using a suggested list, class members use the Internet to find information about a memorable leader, select and transfer images, and craft a trading card celebrating their leader’s qualities and accomplishments. A fun way to integrate technology into the classroom.
A thorough and engaging review of the historical and current applications of computer language, this powerpoint is both humorous and informative as it discusses all things computer, from artificial intelligence programs to text messaging lingo. Computer science students will get a kick out of the examples for ELIZA, Otto Jesperson's top-down reasoning, and jokes about the internet in the last few slides. This is a fun way to introduce a lesson or lecture on computer science.
Biography of a River
Students examine the importance of rivers. They conduct research on a select river, and develop a river biography that includes a century report, description, interviews, and an epitaph in the form of a Cinquain.
Students identify parts and functions of microscope. Students watch video, Cells and Life about cell parts with actual pictures and actual cells. Students discuss video and identify parts of the cells that animals and plants have in common. Students draw a plant and animal cell illustrating similar and different parts. Students set up their own experiment and generate their own hypotheses. Students create cell pizzas and compose a recipe to go with each pizza.
Preservation at Mount Rushmore
Mt. Rushmore wasn't built in a day, but how long will it stick around? How quickly is it eroding and what causes the fastest weathering? Explore these questions and more in a fun, interactive lesson about the earth's natural processes of weathering and erosion.
Safety in Science
Engage the class in using the scientific method. They'll be writing hypotheses, conducting experiments, making observations, recording data, and coming to conclusions as they explore the science used by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Students examine states of matter. In this solids and liquids lesson, students conduct a scientific investigation that requires them to make ooze and record their observations pertaining to it.
Students work through the scientific method and create crystal snowflakes. In this scientific method instructional activity, students use the method to guide their experiment of creating a "snowflake" out of hot water and Borax.
Spreadsheet & Graphing: a Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Middle schoolers discover the uses of graphs in media and develop skills in reading and creating their own graphs. They work in small groups to identify the types of graphs and functions for the types using graphs from print media. Then they collect their own data and draw graphs using a spreadsheet.
Winogradsky in a Bottle: Beginning a Winogradsky Column
Learners study changes in the environment using a microscale experiment. In this environmental science lesson, students construct a modified "Winogradsky Column" to observe bacteria activities. They record observations and formulate a conclusion in the end.
Taste and Smell
Students experiment with sense of smell, and how it relates to sense of taste.
What things let Light Pass Through?
Second graders classify objects according to how well light can pass through them and predict how well objects will transmit light. They experiment with objects to verify predictions while collecting, recording, and interpreting data from observations. They then infer that the amount of light that can pass through a material determines how well we can see through the material.
Starch Yer Thinkin' About Corn Products
Seventh graders study the parts of corn and explore the role of starch. In this corn products lesson students prepare a model of water and stones.
Students discover the process of condensation. For this experimental lesson, students hypothesize and conduct an experiment to determine where the water comes from during condensation.
Applied Science - Science and Math (Post Lab)
Students explore science. In this create science activity, students come up with their own science experiment. They use their basic knowledge of hypothesis and procedure to come up with an experiment. This activity includes background information and a variety of ways this assignment can be given.
