What Is It; Whose Is It; Where Did It Come From?
Students discover which elements are most threatening to outdoor sculptures. In groups, they determine the steps that are needed to preserve them. They locate and assess the condition of those sculptures in their local community. They develop a presentation and share them with members of the community.
Shaping Ideas: Symbolism in Sculpture
Students consider the ways that sculptors have represented concepts and ideals as symbolic forms in three dimensions. They compare historical examples to those in contemporary culture, and begin sketching designs for their own symbolic sculpture.
Artist's Work/Artist's Voice: Louis I. Kahn
Learners explore the process of construction and architecture. In this construction research activity, students complete image based discussion activities and three related activities for architecture and design.
Body and Mindscapes
Third graders view artwork by Robert Harris of landscapes and mountains. Using a map, they locate and identify the physical features of the Canadian province they live in. In groups, they use one of his paintings and add music to symbolize the scene.
Rock Cycle in Motion
Eighth graders build an Animated Gif using the Unfreeze Program, MS Paint and MS Power Point about the different phases and specific processes that occur in the Rock Cycle. They reflect in their science journals the learning that took place.
Using Environmental Models to Determine the Effect of Acid Rain on an Ecosystem
Demonstrate to your middle school science learners how chalk breaks down in a weak acid. Discuss what affects acidic rain might have on ecosystems. Lab groups then choose one of two questions: "How does acid precipitation affect an aquatic ecosystem?" or "How does acid precipitation affect terrestrial ecosystems?" They work together to design and perform an experiment to answer their question. This is a stellar activity on acid rain, and it reinforces practice of lab skills and the scientific process.
Properties of Aqueous Solutions
Advanced chemistry kids experiment with the freezing and boiling points of various aqueous solutions. They also prepare a presentation of the kinetics of solution formation and structure of the matter involved. This resource provides you, as the teacher, with detailed laboratory instructions as well as extensive background information. You will need to design laboratory sheets so that learners will have instructions on-hand.
Science in Focus: Force and Motion
Students explore force and motion through a series of experiments. In this physics lesson, students create and interpret speed graphs. They build an electromagnet and explain the factors affecting its strength.
Plate Tectonics: Movin' and Shakin'
Learners are introduced to the causes of plate movements and the hazards they present. They plot the location of 50 earthquakes and 50 volcanic eruptions on a map and explore the relationships between plate tectonics, earthquakes, and volcanoes. In the final activity, they test the effect of volcanic gases on the growth of plants.
To Honor All Children from Prejudice to Discrimination to Hatred....to Holocaust
Students analyze different perspectives of the history of the Holocaust. They experience primary and secondary sources along with pieces from literature, documentaries, songs and letters. A commitment of honor and dedication is expressed through the thoughts and feelings experienced by the survivors of the Holocaust viewed in this instructional activity.
Las Maquinas y Nosotros: Machines and Us
Second graders explain the relationship between energy and work. For this technology lesson, 2nd graders describe the different uses of machines in their everyday lives. They record observations and data in their science journal.
I'm All Mixed Up
Middle school scientists compare and contrast heterogeneous and homogeneous mixtures. They differentiate solutions, colloids, and suspensions by examining samples of each. Note that the bulk of the lesson plan directs you how to incorporate a physical science video which is not available. Nonetheless, the activities and discussion involved are worthwhile if you don't mind sifting through the write-up.
Tiny Town- Structures And Movement
Students investigate the concept of structures and how they are used in nature and the world of human civilization. The structures have various types and functions that are identified. They create mechanisms to help move objects during simple lab projects.
Young scholars build a scale model of the Solar System and determine the time other planets take to travel around the Sun in comparison to the time of the Earth's revolution. The velocity of the planets are also determined in this lesson.
WHAT IS BALANCE AND MOTION?
Learners are able to describe how tight rope walkers are able to walk on a wire and not fall over. They are able to explain how a tight rope walker distributes their weight. Students provide an idea of how they can balanced as humans using our body parts.
Death and Dying in Puritan New England: A Study Based on Early Gravestones, Vital Records, and other Primary Sources Relating to Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Students examine the time in which the Puritans lived in colonial New England. In groups, they research the Puritans view on life and death and discuss as a class. They read gravestones, diaries and other primary sources to discover more about their daily life. To end the lesson, they research the way contangious diseases made their way into New England and the effect on the population of the Puritans.
The Exchange, Destruction and Reconstruction of Architectural Signs and Symbols in Mexico-Tenochtitlan: A History of Order and Power
Fifth graders use the internet to research the history of cultures throughout the world. In groups, they disucss the meaning of various symbols and view Tenochtitlan as a center of power and wealth. They use everyday materials to create a model of the city and share it with the class. To end the lesson, they write an evaluation on their work and answer discussion questions.
Rome: Republic to Empire
Sixth graders discuss the rise of Rome from a republic to a dictatorship. In small groups, they role-play as congress people debating whether or not to give the president more powers. In another activity, 6th graders produce television interviews with leaders from ancient history.
Learners explore volume in relation to centimeter cubes and other nonstandard units of measurement using small containers. They will use hands-on materials to practice this concept. You will need small objects and containers to set this up.
Life Systems- Zoo Central
Students investigate the various aspects associated with living things while also concentrating on their basic needs. They explore the aspects of movement and growth in plants and animals. This is done through research and other different activities.
