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.
Students explore the process of construction and architecture. In this construction research instructional activity, students complete image based discussion activities and three related activities for architecture and design.
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.
In this encyclopedia worksheet, students study the three pictures of the online encyclopedias. Students then answer a series of questions about the last encyclopedia.
Students blend while Crayola Model Magic wth color from Crayola Washable Markers. They knead the color into the model magic for desired effect. They apply the model magic to a small recycled plastic containter. They decorate the bottle with craft items or plastic jewels.
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.
“It was a dark and stormy night.” Thus begins the 1830 novel Paul Clifford and, of course, all of Snoopy’s novels! Encourage young writers to craft settings for their stories that go beyond Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s often-mocked phrase with a series of exercises. Additional examples of great introductory settings can be found in the paperback series It Was a dark and Stormy Night. Consider having class members check out the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest that awards prizes for the worst beginnings.  
Sculptures are wonderful to look at and they capture a moment in time like no other medium. Learners discuss and discover the life of artist Edmonia Wildfire Lewis and her piece Forever Free. A series of five interesting and creative activities are suggested to accompany this or any other lesson on sculpture. 
While this first appears to be a description of 20 poetry activities, it is actually the introduction, rationale, and explanation of the activities and one sample lesson for "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost. After a copy of the poem, you will find a nice instructional sequence that focuses on sound, figurative language, and theme. Related poems are listed and a graphic organizer is provided to use in small groups. Tip: Pair this lesson with your study of The Outsiders.
After challenging themselves to correctly choose the form of erosion and length of time required for a given landform to develop, earth science class members model mechanical and chemical weathering with various lab demonstrations over two days' time. Video clips of erosion processes occurring in the Hawaiian islands can be shown, and the lesson can be concluded with an included Jeopardy review. Though the publisher states that the lesson was designed for high schoolers, it seems to be more appropriate for upper-elementary to middle school earth science classes.
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 lesson on acid rain, and it reinforces practice of lab skills and the scientific process.
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. 
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.
Students 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.
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 lesson.
Second graders explain the relationship between energy and work. In this technology lesson, 2nd graders describe the different uses of machines in their everyday lives. They record observations and data in their science journal.
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.
Students 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.
Students 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.
Learners 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.
