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. 
Young scholars 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 build a scale model of the Solar System and determine the time other planets take to travel around the Sun in comparison to the time of the Earth's revolution. The velocity of the planets are also determined in this instructional activity.
Students as a class create a fountain using both coke soda, and mentos candy. In 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 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.
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.
Teaching your child about patterns can be a fun and motivating experience.
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.
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.
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.
Fifth graders discover new and interesting technologies of the Civil War. In this Civil War portfolio of lessons, 5th graders analyze primary resources, develop new vocabulary, investigate websites, and create a time line of new technologies of the Civil War. Students research what other new technologies were created because of this war within the states in addition to weaponry.
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.
Fourth and fifth graders engage in this impressive lesson which focuses on the causes of hurricanes and tropical storms. The use of video clips and Internet sites helps facilitate discussion amongst pupils which should lead them to a much-better understanding of hurricanes. A very fine lesson!
Learners identify parts and functions of microscope. Students watch video, Cells and Life about cell parts with actual pictures and actual cells. Learners 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. Learners set up their own experiment and generate their own hypotheses. Students create cell pizzas and compose a recipe to go with each pizza.
Students pretend the area they live in is subject to wind, waves and rain. In groups, they pretend they are a groups of meteorologists or geologists and are to report on the weather and damage that could occur there. Each group develops a news report to present their findings to the class.
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 lesson, students use the method to guide their experiment of creating a "snowflake" out of hot water and Borax.
Students 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.
