In this circuit worksheet students study electronic circuits and how they get power. Students determine polarity and magnitude and work with Kirchoffs laws to answer 48 questions regarding circuits. Answers are revealed when selected.
A Home for Lars
Students explore animal characteristics by researching polar bears. In this habitat lesson, students read the story Ahoy There, Little Polar Bear and identify the needs of a polar bear on Earth. Students view a 10 minute PowerPoint presentation about the habitat of the polar bear.
Bonding, Part A
Starting with a list of definitions and helpful tips for investigating electronegativity and bonding, this question sheet is comprehensive in focus and in its question style. Many types of questions or realistic situation are available, where students have to consider rules of polarity and bonding type. Your class should also draw Lewis Dot structures for the molecules given. A good sheet to keep along with notes for further review.
First graders discover the effects of global warming on polar bears. In this life science lesson, 1st graders model the polar bear's habitat and observe what happens as they raise the temperature. They record their observation in the chart and discuss results.
Physical Systems, Here and There
Young scholars study physical systems such as polar, rainforest, forests, deserts, and grasslands in Canada. They make a pictorial map and find examples of similar systems in the world.
Blubber is Better
Fifth graders study and test the insulating properties of various materials. In this insulation lesson, 5th graders participate in an experiment to that is intended to test weather modeling clay or vegetable shortening is a better insulator. Students integrate technology which includes the internet, stopwatches, and Celsius thermometers. Students listen to the book Nature's Children: Polar Bears and discuss the adaptations need for survival in an arctic environment.
Life in the Artic
Student's investigate what living in the Arctic is like for people, plants and animals. They research the life of a polar bear.
The Properties of Water
Students explore the polarity of a water molecule and how it affects the properties of water. They explore separation of water and why it occurs, then make predictions regarding separation based on the properties of the liquid.
In this weather worksheet, students label 6 climate zones on a world map as polar, temperate or tropical. Students answer 4 short answer questions about climate zones.
In this solubility worksheet, students test a variety of polar and non polar substances to determine which ones will dissolve in vegetable oil and which ones will dissolve in water. Students collect data and answer 2 questions about their results.
Student Reading - The Unique Properties of Water
Without water there would be no life on this planet. Biology learners find out why by reading this handout. Create a worksheet of questions to answer after the reading. Follow it up with quick demonstrations or laboratory activities that demonstrate each of the amazing properties of water, including: polarity, cohesion, specific heat, evaporation, density, and its role as the universal solvent.
Calculation the Cricumference of Earth using "Google Earth"
Eighth graders investigate properties of circles. In this eight grade mathematics lesson plan, 8th graders apply proportional reasoning to data gathered with “Google Earth” to calculate equatorial and polar circumference of the Earth.
Lesson Plans for Winter
Students participate in several winter-themed lessons. For this seasonal lesson, students study penguins and polar bears by animal masks for dramatic play. Additionally, students construct winter calendars and celebrate the season of winter with a class party.
Role Playing A Neuronal Transmission
Students roleplay to review nerve communication and the parts of the neuron. Each student represents a different part of a neuron and as parts become polarized and depolarized they act it out. A surprise occurs at the synaptic knob as this student gets to squirt water from a small water gun to the beginning of the next neuron, representing the synapse.
"A Voice of Moderation and Civility"
Students read about, discuss and reflect on the life of retired Justice Lewis Powell, investigating major court decisions he influenced and the impact of his 'voice of moderation and civility to an increasingly polarized (Supreme) court.'
Introduction To Coordinate Entry
Students demonstrate industrial literacy. They conduct problem solving, graphing, note taking, and self management skills. They construct then plot, Absolute and Relative Cartesian Coordinates and Absolute and Relative Polar Coordinates.
If You've Seen One Map, Have You Seen Them All?
Students discover why there are many ways to show what Earth looks like on a map. They explain different views of the world and compare a polar map image with other views of the world.
Water:Properties, Chapter 3
Hydrogen bonds, and polarity are described in this PowerPoint, and the reasons for tension and cohesion associated with water. The states of water under certain conditions are explained with information about the changes in density and matter. There is a lot of information regarding the relationships with water and solvents, solutions, molarity, pH and dissociation.
Space Shuttle's Heat Shield Problem
Students participate in a role-play activity to determine how to replace heat shields on the space shuttle using polar coordinates.
The Mass of the Van Allen Radiation Belts
In this van Allen Radiation Belts worksheet, students are given the formula for the field line of the Earth's inner magnetic field. Students use this equation to find the polar coordinates of a field line in the van Allen Belts. They also find the approximate volume of a particular region in the van Allen Belt using the equation for a torus. They complete the worksheet by finding the total mass of the van Allen Belts.
