Students 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.
Pupils 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 experiment with sense of smell, and how it relates to sense of taste.
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.
Sixth graders complete a think, pair, share activity on an antibiotic overhead. In groups, they participate in an exercise in which they can see how germs behave and how they are treated. To end the lesson, they discuss how a resistance to antibiotics can evolve in a population.
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. In this experimental lesson, students hypothesize and conduct an experiment to determine where the water comes from during condensation.
Students examine the characteristics of fungi. In this biology lesson, students investigate the factors needed for fungi growth. They collect data and observations and write a report about them.
Eighth graders are introduced to the topic of Environmental Chemistry. In groups, they review the steps within the scientific method and develop their own hypothesis and design an experiment. They solve equations related to the properties of matter and discover how to determine the differences between a chemical and physical change. To end the lesson, they use the layers of the atmosphere and solve problems related to the environment.
Learners engage in a lesson plan that is concerned with the concept of static electricity. They conduct an experiment with balloons and make observations of how it works. The data is collected and written down and they define positive, negative, and electrons.
Students discuss how different animals would move in the painting Grand Canyon in the Yellowstone. In this imaginative lesson plan, students also experiment with the sound of water with the waterfall inside the painting.
Mini mycologists plan an experiment to determine what affects the growth of mold on gelatin. A list of available materials is provided, but the procedure needs to be designed by the lab group. A data table is also provided in which to record seven days of observations. Unfortunately, there is no obvious way to measure results, making this more of a simple observation than a scientific investigation. The activity should lead to a valid discussion of how to store food and lessen mold growth.
Eighth graders study geological time and distance. In this geology lesson students divide into groups, draw conclusions and test their idea.
Students build a realistic sense of geological time, seek clues of transition fossils and find them. In this investigative lesson students complete several activities and worksheets on fossils.
Students investigate how the scientific process can be applied to making a new salad dressing recipe.
Sixth graders observe with a microscope such simple crystals as salt, sugar, cream of tartar, and other chemicals which are listed in detail. They observe the crystalline structure and make comparisons, culminating in the creation of several diverse crystals.
Students analyze the outcome of a scientific experiment using free downloadable software. They collect experimental data to use statistical software to determine if the observations are likely due to the treatment or random chance.
Students determine their lung capacity by completing a science experiment with a bottle of water. In this lung science lesson, students discuss the lungs' purpose. Students complete an experiment to determine their lung capacity using a water filled bottle.
The students will design a lab to test the mechanism that triggers spore dispersal. They should have some clues after making observations of the life cycle. Part of the fun here is to let the students devise a method for testing this mechanism and be able to repeat the protocol with similar results.
Third graders plant seeds and see how they will grow in a specific temperature and are questioned about different environments and how they think crops would grow there. They form a hypothesis, perform an experiment, and then collect results and come up with a solution.
