Students use the scientific process of investigation to explore the mechanics of making ice cream, bread, pancakes, Kool-Aid and cake. They research foods and agriculture from the 1930's.
Instead of dreading the season of science fair projects, make it a pleasure for everyone involved.
Seventh graders study spiders. They view spider silk through a microscope and compare it to human hair or other fibrous materials. In groups, they compare the strength and elasticity of spider silk. Finally they watch a teacher demonstration on polymers.
Students create information pages on 10 zoo animals that they discover in Second Life. In this zoo animals lesson plan, students include the name, species, a drawing, their diet, and more.
Students create a desert biome and a prairie biome and see how plants survive in both. In this biomes lesson plan, studnets create their biomes and see how the water cycle effect each biome and plant differently. 
In this electrical circuit instructional activity, learners design and build a circuit board to grasp the understanding PN junctions in circuit designs before answering a series of 19 open-ended questions with schematics. This instructional activity is printable and the answers are available online.
Fifth graders explore the concept of environmental management.  In this ecosystem lesson, 5th graders discover how models help scientists learn more about managing ecosystems. Students create their own model, make observations and discuss their findings. 
Young scholars examine how plants are able to adapt to their ecosystem and the role that fire plays in changes through the years.  In this ecosystem lesson students complete several exercises focussing on plants and their adaptations to.
Learners examine mass and use chemistry to identify whether CO2 and CH4 have mass.  In this atomic mass instructional activity students complete a lab activity by creating CO2 and CH4.
Students have cinnamon sprinkled onto their hands and walk around the room touching objects within their reach. Students observe all of the objects containing cinnamon fingerprints to visualize where and how germs are spread.
Young scholars examine children's rights and how laws can affect their education and daily life. Through the investigation of various cases, they assess how the best interests of children are either upheld or ignored and how the Constitution includes children's rights as well as those of adults.
For this physics worksheet students complete a series of short answer questions on different circuitry and how things operate. 
In this electrical circuit worksheet, students design and build a circuit board to grasp the understanding of shift resister circuit design before answering a series of 22 open-ended questions with schematics. This worksheet is printable and the answers are available online.
Eighth graders optimize the eruption of soda from a soda bottle.  In this optimizing the eruption of soda from a soda bottle lesson, 8th graders determine the number of mentos needed to optimize a soda eruption.  Students make graphs of their results and discuss the data.
Students examine how water is treated prior to becoming available for human consumption. In this water treatment lesson, students conduct an experiment in which they filter water. Students formulate a hypothesis, test, analyze data, and share results.
Third graders will research the Ring of Fire and be able to share their findings with their partner. They will also demonstrate volcanic eruptions using a baking soda and vinegar volcano model. Then they will discover how continental drifting takes place. Inquiry based activities are included.
How is the Earth's weather created? Middle schoolers will explain how the Sun's energy is transformed into different forms. They will perform mathematical calculations of volume, mass, and temperature. They they will explain the different factors influencing the Earth's weather. Material lists and resources are included.
Students form hypotheses and carry out an investigation in order to answer a central question: Does soap float? The focus of this lesson is on scientific inquiry, but it incorporates scientific topics such as sinking and floating.
Students read an article about the importance of sleep and answer and discuss related questions, journal, and do activities on the web.
Students integrate history and science while discovering how salinity affects the density of water. After a lecture/demo, students work in groups to complete a lab activity that demonstrates how salinity affects the density of water.
