Learners design an experiment to show energy conservation. In this Physics lesson, students will be practicing collecting data, reporting answers in correct S.I. units, and test the Law of Conservation of Energy by dropping a marble. Only selected equipment can be used by the learners to show energy conservation in this student centered activity.
Get the low-down by having your class examine the process of conducting a science experiment. They will discuss what makes a good science experiment, then examine pull-back cars and inclined planes to determine what kind of experiment they can conduct. They design an experiment for the cars and then critique a classmate's experiment. In the end, they should gain a comprehensive understanding of how to conduct a scientific experiment.
Students define amplitude, wavelength, frequency, and period, calculate period given frequency, and calculate frequency given period, define crest and trough and locate both on diagram of wave, differentiate between latitudinal and longitudinal waves, and design experiment on waves and wave motion.
Students investigate the best conditions for fungi to grow on seeds. In this fungi lesson plan, students hypothesize about mold growth and the best conditions for it to grow on seeds by storing seeds in cold, dry conditions and warm, moist conditions. They determine if their hypothesis was correct and answer 4 questions about their investigation.
Ninth graders conduct experiments to determine what affects the rate of a pendulum's swing. Working in small groups, they identify an independent variable to study and create an experiment to test their hypothesis. When tests are complete they graph the results of their experiment.
Students examine conditions needed for plant growth. In this plants activity, students plant a seed in a paper towel in a cup. Students then plant a seed in a cup using potting soil. Students make a hypothesis about the rate of growth. Then make observations and record the growth of each seed
After finishing a unit on Greek history, it's important to test how much learners remember. This handout provides six different essay topics related to Greek History, influences, Athenian Democracy, or Alexander the Great. A rubric is available to help the class write an amazing paper.
Students develop estimation skills by using real life situations. In this estimation lesson students collect data about their television watching habits. They make hypothesis about the number of hours they watch, how many commercials, etc. They use this information to create a chart about their data.
Students are able to explain how the water cycle recycles the earth's water supply. They are able to make use of the knowledge of land forms learned in social studies. Students are able to form a hypothesis on how/why the water cycle works. They are able to use language arts skills to write and draw to explain how the cycle works.
Students observe termite trail-following behavior. In this termite trails lesson, students draw a circle or other shape approximately eight inches across with a ball point pen. Teacher taps out termites into the circle and request that students make notes on its movements. Termites will follow the line.
