In this transit of Mercury worksheet, students read about Earth and Mercury lining up so that Mercury passes across the disk of the sun from the Earth's view. Students solve 3 problems and they determine the diameter of the solar disk when Mercury crosses the sun, they determine the size of Mercury's appearance and they find the next time the transit of Earth and Mercury will occur.
Learners explore weather through an interview with a scientist.  In this weather instructional activity, students conduct weather research and then analyze an interview with a weather scientist. Learners prepare a multimedia presentation to share the work.
High schoolers observe and explore the characteristics of light.
Students apply concepts of magnetism to help them understand the production of solar flares. In this solar flare activity, students complete activities and graphic organizers to help them learn about magnetic fields on the surface of the sun, sunspots, and solar flares. Lecture materials, worksheets, and rubrics are provided.
Learners explore the different types of lifters through a series of activities. In this physics lesson, students explain the mechanics involved in the lifter designs. They compare aluminum versus zinc lifters.
In this Sputnik instructional activity, middle schoolers fill-in-the-blanks in 17 statements using one of the four given choices. They use information about the Sputnik satellite to complete the instructional activity.
Students examine how a transformer works and its practical applications.  In this electricity lesson students complete several experiments using transformers and generators.
Learners study the different types of nuclear reactions and what nuclear fusion is.  In this energy lesson students view a video and use the Internet to investigate these reactions. 
In this solar system worksheet, students complete a ten question multiple choice page pertaining to the solar system. Prior knowledge is assumed.
In this solar system worksheet, students write vocabulary words describing the solar system next to their definitions. Students write 12 vocabulary words.
For this spelling worksheet, students write each of 21 words two times. This list contains words with the roots graph/fract, sight words and academic vocabulary.
Students recognize and name the parts of a flower. They explain the function of each part of a flower. Students list the steps that occur for sexual reproduction of a plant to take place. They recognize and name the male reproductive parts, and female reproductive parts of a flower.
The student will identify the difference in the rate of plant growth in three soils that vary in organic matter.1. Obtain three to four flowerpots, different types of soil, a record chart, three to five beans for each pot, and water. Hand out Activity sheet A. 2. Remind learners that plants take mineral nutrients from the soil. The minerals found in the soil depend mainly on what was in the rock the soil came from.
In this biology learning exercise, students look for the words in the puzzle that are related to the theme of the word search. The vocabulary and spelling are emphasized.
Students explore Newton's Laws of Motion. In this Physics lesson, students engage in hands-on activities to observe Newton's laws.  Students record their observations from each of the tasks and apply them to Newton's Laws.
Students explore the process of growing plants from seed. In this propagation lesson, students examine methods of propagation and determine how to rapidly propagate plant species. Students listen to a lecture informing them on the topic and observe growing plants.
Students explore landscape design. In this practical gardening lesson, students design landscape plans that call for shrubs, trees, and plants that can be used for aesthetics, cooking, and wildlife.
Young scholars explore biotic and abiotic factors in landscape design. In this landscaping lesson plan, students create 3-dimensional models that represent landscape designs taking into consideration climate and planting requirements.
After researching the Greenland Space Science Symposium, curious thinkers create a PowerPoint or video presentation. They use the information they gathered to construct their presentation.
Students follow steps to build a simple version of a magnetometer, an instrument capable of detecting areas of strong magnetic field. Students use the magnetometer to investigate models of the Sun and examine images of the Sun.
