Spelling List E-36
In 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.
Flowers: Form and Function
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.
COMPARE SOILS BY GROWING PLANTS
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 students 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.
Newton's Motion Unit
Learners explore Newton's Laws of Motion. In this Physics lesson, students engage in hands-on activities to observe Newton's laws. Learners record their observations from each of the tasks and apply them to Newton's Laws.
Don't Wait, Just Propagate
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.
If It Smells Good, Is Edible, and Attracts Wildlife, Then It's a Practical Garden
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.
Arizona Grown Specialty Crop Lesson Plan: Where Do They Go?
Students explore biotic and abiotic factors in landscape design. In this landscaping lesson, students create 3-dimensional models that represent landscape designs taking into consideration climate and planting requirements.
The Magnetic Sun
Pupils 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.
Chandra Word Search
In this space science worksheet, students find the words that are associated with learning new vocabulary and the answers are found by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.
Geologic Features of Venus
Students, after being given extensive information on surface roughness on Venus and a presentation on the electromagnetic spectrum, are introduced to the use of radar images for geologic feature identification. They explore the reflection of NASA and its findings with radar images as well. In addition, they simulate a radar image in a lab experiment with string and photographs.
(S-1) Sunlight and the Earth
Students discuss the solar heating of the Earth and atmosphere, its heat loss proceses, and the way these relate to weather and climate.
Ways to See the Sun
Students examine how the regions of the Sun are studied using spectroscopy. They investigate the electromagnetic spectrum and the types of radiation that are associated with it. They use prisms and CD's to examine the light spectrum. They determine how the lines in the light spectrum aid in viewing the regions of the Sun.
Tracking the Movement of Sunspots
Pupils examine how the development of new technology has increased our knowledge of how the sun works. Students study sunspots through the use of solar imaging from satellite instruments.
Preparing the translation of a text by Vitruvius (collective work)
students discover the text that is projected as an unseen. The whole text is in black, but the part that is to be translated is in bold. Using the possibilities of the word processor, the teacher underlines the verbs, frames the subordinating conjunctions, writes in blue the prepositions and their group, as the students are pointing them out to her.
