In this reading comprehension and vocabulary worksheet, students read a text about the history of National Ice Cream Day. Kids work alone or in partners to complete 144 questions. There are vocabulary matching problems, fill in the blank, multiple choice, and an essay assignment. There is a link provided for students to listen to the story.
Students explore the causes and effects of the melting ice formations in Antarctica; they then research different aspects of the topic in order to create a news special.
Students examine scientific evidence of changes in the Arctic ice cover. They participate in a simulation of an international conference and debate the relationship between global warming and changes in the arctic ice cover.
Eighth grade physical science classes examine why the ice on which hockey is played is slippery. They do so by discussing phases of matter and the molecular motion in each. They read an article on a website and write out answers to 10 reading comprehension questions. Although there are no hands-on science experiences as part of the lesson, associating phases to the field of ice hockey adds a practical relationship.
Students observe and discuss what happens when water turns to ice and when ice turns into water. In this freezing and melting lesson plan, students observe ice and water and complete hands on activities that change their properties.
Students examine the various forms that ice can take. In this melting ice instructional activity students view videos on climate and global warming.
Students explore physical science by reading a water properties story in class. In this ice formation lesson, students read the book Five Little Penguins Slipping on the Ice before creating snow cones in class. Students utilize ice cubes, white paper and paint to create "ice paintings" in class.
Students study the ice age and the causes of it. In this Ice Age lesson plan students examine why those animals became extinct and complete activity sheets.
Students read books, learn about the letter i, and eat ice cream all to learn about ice cream. In this ice cream lesson plan, students also scoop play dough to simulate scooping ice cream.
The Artctic and Antarctic Ice caps are the focus of this Earth science lesson. In reality, this is more of a demonstration than a lesson, but there is some rich discussion that happens before, during, and after the demonstration takes place. Very interesting idea!
Learners discuss their favorite ice cream flavors and read the math problem. They brainstorm the problem and brainstorm for ways to solve the problem. Students work in pairs and share solutions.
Students talk about books. In this book talk instructional activity, students read Clifford and the Big Ice Cream Mess. Students then participate in a book talk and write a response regarding what went wrong in the story.
Students analyze earth science by creating a frozen treat in class. In this heat transfer lesson, students discuss how matter is transformed from solid to liquid and liquid to gas when energy is removed from the equation. Students conduct an experiment in which they squish a bag full of ingredients with their bare hands in order to create ice cream.
Chemistry concepts come alive against the backdrop of the Sochi Olympic Winter Games! Here is a captivating clip to share with your chemistry kids. It teaches how the bonds in a water molecule contribute to the formation of a lattice within a chunk of ice, and how their lack of bonding at the surface provides the slipperiness that makes Olympic ice skaters really move! Pupils also learn how salt molecules are used to keep water molecules apart, preventing them from bonding to become ice. This would be a neat addition to your chemistry curriculum when covering the any of the following topics: hydrogen bonds, crystal lattices, ions, or freezing point.
Investigate pictographs in this math graphing lesson plan. Young learners color and cut out an ice cream cone that represents their favorite flavor. Students add their cone to the appropriate area on the pictograph. Students complete related data worksheets with a group of students. Website information about making ice cream is included.
Students describe the physical properties of ice and speculates on the dangers that icecaps might pose on a global scale. They then demonstrate, through a series of experiments, several physical properties of ice (ability to fracture, refreezing to other pieces of ice, melting under raised temperatures, and melting faster under pressure).
Students design and conduct experiments in order to identify the components of lake water environments that are affected by winter ice cover. They use the experiment results to propose effective human management of these ecosystems.
Students study the work of Dr. Hajo Eicken through an audio conference. They engage in a conference call with Dr. Eicken to identify how ice core research is designed and conducted. After asking Dr. Eicken questions, they record their answers and write in their field journals.
A selection of videos is shown to get your class thinking about scientific theory, guided by a handout. Emerging earth scientists also read articles and take notes about glaciers and sea ice. To conclude, they write an evaluation of the evidence for melting ice using the theory that increasing global temperatures are responsible. This resource is ideal for challenging high schoolers to apply critical thinking to scientific media.
Students understand the sea ice cycle and can explain its stages. For this Sea Ice lesson, students play a game to identify types of sea ice. Students answer critical thinking questions about sea ice. Students complete a sea ice worksheet.
