Sun and Weather
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.
Probing into Plant Parts
Students obtain a better understanding of a plant as an organism with needs, and how the various parts of the organism help it to meet its needs. They explain how some plants are alike and different.
Miscellaneous diode applications
In this physics learning exercise 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.
Diet Coke and Mentos - Geyser Optimization
Eighth graders optimize the eruption of soda from a soda bottle. For 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.
What happens to water before we use it?
Students examine how water is treated prior to becoming available for human consumption. In this water treatment instructional activity, students conduct an experiment in which they filter water. Students formulate a hypothesis, test, analyze data, and share results.
Does Soap Float?
Students form hypotheses and carry out an investigation in order to answer a central question: Does soap float? The focus of this lesson plan is on scientific inquiry, but it incorporates scientific topics such as sinking and floating.
Learners read an article about the importance of sleep and answer and discuss related questions, journal, and do activities on the web.
Technologies of the Civil War
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.
Count Marsili & the Mediterranean Current
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.
May the Force be with You -- All about Force and Gravity
Here is a fabulous set of teacher's notes that will make your next hands-on gravity and force lab fun and interesting. These notes provide you with three activities that allow children to make and test hypothesis regarding force, gravity, and inertia. All you need is some balls and marbles and you're good to go!
Learners research coral reefs and identify their benefits to humans, threats to the reef, how to reduce and eliminate threats, and more. In this coral reef lesson plan, students research the reefs, and take a field trip to an aquarium.
CSI Lesson Plans Can Turn Students Into Learning Detectives
Children learn to use the methods of good detection for solving a crime, and even analyzing literature.
Students discuss the scientific method and construct their own Mobius Strips. They examine their Mobius Strip, and write observations and a hypothesis on how many strips of paper they have when they cut the strip in half length-wise.
Students participate in a simulation in which they dig for artifacts in a shoebox filled with objects. In groups, they record the types of material and artifacts found in each layer. To end the lesson, they answer questions on the objects they find.
ELD Lesson Planner: What Really Happened?
Based on three Houghton-Mifflin stories ("Amelia Earhart: First Lady of Flight," "The Girl Who Married the Moon," and "Dinosaur Ghosts"), learners complete oral language activities to practice their literacy skills. Sentences frames for Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced learners (as well as differentiated vocabulary lists) allow them to reinforce their grammar and sentence structure.
Jeopardy: 1st Semester Biology Review
Review general biology concepts with this fun version of Jeopardy. There are actually two separate games within this set of slides. The first covers scientific method, ecology, properties of water, and enzymes, while the second covers macromolecules, cell structure, genetics, and more! Most high schoolers will enjoy practicing for an exam with this PowerPoint and it is easily adaptable to any biology course.
Energy Dreams by Design
Young scholars explore a new home and design some of its electrical features. They construct a model of the electrical features and consider accessibility for the handicapped into the room. In groups, students analyze the advantages and disadvantages of sources used to generate electricity. They write a letter to the mayor supporting their choice for an energy source.
Blowin' In The Wind
Students predict and hypothesize the reasons for wind movement. After viewing a video, they describe the effects of a high and low pressure system and what makes the wind blow. In groups, they construct instruments that measure air pressure and wind speed. They graph and analyze their data through daily observations.
Students study plant parts and their functions in a dissection activity. In this plant dissection lesson, students use several handouts to help them learn parts of the plant and their functions. Students then dissect flowers in groups and participate in a plant vocabulary matching game.
