Students read about matter by creating an in-class diagram. In this chemical lesson, students identify the properties of solids and liquids and discuss ways they can transform chemically and physically. Students define a list of vocabulary terms and create a diagram based on a chemical and physical change.
Young scholars identify the physical and chemical properties and explore the differences. In physical and chemical property instructional activity students test polymers for the differences between the physical and chemical properties, record their observations and orally, and in writing communicate their results.
Students complete activities for physical music analysis. In this physical music lesson, students read the biography for Lelavision musical sculptures, complete a sound and motion activity, and a making music activity. Students also write about a musical creation participate in partner pose activity.
Present information about Max Planck and quantum physics while practicing reading comprehension. Class members read a short text and then use a dictionary and an acronym finder to complete the 4 reading comprehension questions about Max Planck and quantum physics. This is not the most innovative resource, but it does provide complicated text to read. Check for errors.
Twelve pages of mostly multiple-choice questions comprise this comprehensive New York Regents physics exam. It covers an entire year's worth of physics curriculum and requires about three hours for completion. Review the questions to make sure that they are all covered in your class, then create your own answer sheet for student use. This is an outstanding resource to use as a final exam.
Every topic under the sun is covered in this New York State Regents High School Examination. With the focus of earth science, participants answer 85 quesitons about the solar system, geologic time, rocks and minerals, landforms, and more! An entire year's earth science curriculum is assessed by taking this exam.
This lesson will focus on the aspects of Shakespeare's comedy that become more evident in performance. By viewing clips of the same Shakespeare scene in different film versions, high schoolers have the opportunity to engage in a close critical analysis and to compare the play to its film version.
Fourth graders expand their knowledge about the physical properties of matter and how those properties can be changed. Students are given multiple opportunities, using first-hand experiences and familiar objects in different contexts, to identify characteristics of a physical change.
This is a stellar overview of everything light and quantum! There are 30 multiple choice questions, none of them requiring any mathematical computation. There are a few diagrams to analyze: light rays striking reflective and refractive materials, spectral lines, and more. You can use this comprehensive set of conceptual questions as an exam.
High schoolers investigate estuaries and the variations in physical factors from one estuary to another. For this estuaries lesson plan, students explore water depth, salinity, temperature, and dissolved oxygen in estuaries using an on line tutorial and make inferences about their relationships. High schoolers use an on line database to gather information about the estuaries and they analyze the data. Students complete an 88 question self test and 2 puzzles.
Learners characterize a physical change as something that changes to a different size, but retains its basic substance. They measure volumes using milliliters, and perform an experiment that proves that gases expand when hot and contract when they cool off. The experiment is easy to implement, and the instructions are clear and concise.
Here's a wonderful lesson on how substances change states. Groups of learners are given trays with a chocolate bar, a piece of paper, an ice cube, and a balloon. During the activity, the groups closely observe the changes that each object goes through. They keep track of their observations on a lab sheet that's embedded in the plan. Sure to be a hit!
