Seventh graders hypothesize about the number of drops of liquid that can be placed on a penny before it spills over. They examine both the concept of devising a hypothesis and the idea of surface tension. They determine the difference between a variable and a control in an experiment.
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.
Students develop an experiment to test a hypothesis. They use their knowledge of antigen-antibody specificity to develop a hypothesis. Students articulate that the antibody-antigen specificity is one part of the immune system. They develop questions around the components of the immune system.
Students examine the components of effective writing for different purposes. In this ELL lesson, students determine cause and effect, examine how essays are constructed to express ideas, needs, feelings and attitudes. They will also compose a letter to the editor and practice using graphic organizers prior to writing.
Students complete an observational or natural science experiment. They do systematic and experimental work using experiments that have been done by others. They research their hypothesis and gather information from several sources. They investigate an illness or disease of interest to them.
Pupils are given a set problem, they use the scientific method to solve the problem using all steps of the scientific research. Students list the steps of the scientific method used in solving a problem. They are given a selected task with materials to set up a demonstration, follow steps of the scientific method in testing a hypothesis.
Sixth graders investigate the Woodlands, Arctic, Southwest, Plateau, Northwest Coast, and Plains regions. They study primary sources and rotate through workstations to create an archaeology log in their journals. As they look for clues in the workstations they compare them to the research and resources to create a hypothesis.
Students form and test a hypothesis about the effect of exercise on respiration rate. In this health lesson, students use the scientific method to design an experiment that will test their hypothesis. They use calculators to average their results and they write a lab report.
