Students complete activities to study the properties and types of rocks. In this geology lesson, students use tools to study a Triscuit cracker and chart their class results. Students then complete a study of 'mock rocks' for their physical properties and watch a video about rock properties. Students use the sentence starters to complete a sentence about the topic.
Elementary schoolers explore states of matter by concentrating on the ways in which water moves between its solid, liquid, and gaseous states in a variety of Earth environments. Learners interpret these movements through dance. The combination of movement and Earth science is most-unique! Five excellent website resources are embedded in the plan.
Students study the Earth's layers and the patterns of change. For this Earth science lesson, students read Where the Forest Meets the Sea and complete a dirt, rock, and water compression activity to study the strata layer. Students brainstorm what their city would look like in 200 years. Students illustrate and write a summary about the demonstration.
Ninth graders conduct an experiment to determine how melting sea ice affect sea level. In this earth science instructional activity, 9th graders explain the environmental consequences of rising sea level. They relate this instructional activity to global warming.
Students investigate the effect of wind speed and water depth on wave heights in a hurricane. In this earth science lesson, students record wave height when they blow on the opposite side of the straw. They analyze and formulate a conclusion based on their data.
Pupils assess the importance of wind power in generating energy. In this earth science lesson plan, students analyze the factors affecting wind power in certain locations. They select a potential site for wind turbines and explain why their site is ideal.
Eighth graders identify the factors that contribute to global warming. In this earth science lesson, 8th graders evaluate the impact of global warming on the planet. They discuss their views within the group.
Students explain how volcanoes form. In this earth science lesson, students identify the different types of volcanoes. They create brochures about Mt. Vesuvius before and after the eruption.
Eighth graders differentiate chemical and physical weathering. In this earth science lesson, 8th graders create a photo story about the two types of weathering using a digital camera.
Eighth graders investigate the mechanism of chemical weathering. In this earth science instructional activity, 8th graders test a variety of compounds to determine if there is a chemical reaction. They post their findings on the blog and create a PowerPoint presentation about it.
Students research about the animals found in Burgess Shale. In this earth science lesson, students evaluate the significance of fossils in human history. They create models of their chosen animal.
For this earth science worksheet, students locate and identify vocabulary terms related to earth science that begin with the letter "F." There are 24 words located in the puzzle.
Eighth graders compare and contrast the three different types of rock. In this earth science lesson, 8th graders classify rock samples according to their correct rock type. They design their own data collection table.
Eighth graders measure temperature, wind speed and pressure using Skymaster SM-28. In this earth science instructional activity, 8th graders collect data and record observations taken from outdoors. They explain why numerical values are different in various locations around the school.
Eighth graders identify the different weather elements. In this earth science lesson, 8th graders explain the difference between relative humidity and dew point. They discuss the different instruments used to predict weather.
A collection of 16 different chemistry crosswords provides variety in the ways that your class reviews chemistry vocabulary and concepts. Because the topics for each range from the introductory periodic table of elements to the complex energetics and kinetics, this resource is valuable to middle school and high school teachers alike. Each puzzle is comprehensive in coverage and has anywhere from 12 to 36 questions to answer. Add this to your library of review tools. US teachers, be aware that there are British spellings for some terms. In most cases, the US spelling requires the same number of letters as the British, so this shouldn't be a problem.
Students identify different types of rocks used in the pictures. In this earth science lesson, students hypothesize why specific rocks are used to construct buildings. They discuss their findings within the group and submit their work to the teacher.
Learners research the geological features of Niagara Falls. In this earth science lesson plan, students create a poster board proposing a new website for the tourist center. They share their project in class.
Eighth graders investigate variables that could affect tree sap production. In this earth science lesson, 8th graders classify different soil types. They record their data in a spreadsheet and discuss findings.
Ninth graders research the pros and cons of technological evolution. In this earth science lesson, 9th graders organize their researched information into a PowerPoint presentation. They present their project in class.
