Students explain that evidence of Humanism in the European Renaissance can be found in paintings from the Renaissance. They apply criteria of Humanistic evidence to paintings to determine their place in Renaissance history.
Student groups create an art history timeline. They design collages to represent different periods of art throughout history, and recreate pieces from each era.
Middle schoolers use the internet to research the geography of the Renaissance. Using maps of Europe, they identify at least three key cities during the time period and discuss the main types of transportation. They research the various customs and traditions and examine the types of art that came out during the Renaissance.
Students investigate the best design using technology. In this science lesson, students construct a freestanding object with specific materials to be able to shoot a ping pong ball and a marshmallow. They have to adjust and discuss vocabulary words such as trebuchets and catapults.
Students explain the innovations in painting as a result of the invention of oil paint during the Renaissance. They see the differences between egg tempera paintings of the early Renaissance and oil paintings of the middle and late Renaissance.
Students explore the development of paint and paintings during the Renaissance. In a science lab, they reproduce the properties of egg in tempera paint and compare and contrast egg tempera paintings to oil paintings. Through experimentation, students examine the results of their paint mixing with that of other students.
A very interesting way to model Hippocrates allows your clas to to compare world views and to illustrate how ideas have changed at key times throughout the history of science. This simulation has students role play patients and physicians.
Fourth graders respond to six sayings that are introduced in this instructional activity. They brainstorm, justify, explain, describe, create and relate as they respond.
Students study Lady Anges Randolph and other heroic woman using multimedia. They create class presentations with their findings. They write a diary about living in a medieval castle after researching what life was like in them.
Fourth graders identify the reasons behind the fall of the Roman Empire and describe the changes that occurred after the fall of the Roman Empire.
Students in a Latin class focus on archeology and trade from the Hellenistic period through the Middle Ages. In groups, they read various stages of a primary source documents in which they discuss and answer questions. To end the instructional activity, they examine objects found in the ashes of the Mt. Vesuvius.
Students examine multiple vectors involved in spread of disease and explore how community would be exposed to numerous diseases. Students read map with accuracy, synthesize information from various sources to create accurate picture of how disease transmission and trade were interwoven in medieval life, and create plausible explanation for problem from multiple sources of information, none of which contain exact answer.
Students evaluate a video about Nellie Bly, a famous reporter from the 19th century. They consider what makes a high-interest news article, write an essay in pairs and present it a literary tea.
Part two of the four-part series on the flow of time takes us from the Middle Ages to the insights and mathematical understanding that bloomed in the Renaissance Period. Newton and Galileo's understanding of time is explained in terms of current physics. Time travel and the speed of light is also covered.
For this science and mass media in America worksheet, students complete 12 fill in the blank questions and 6 multiple choice questions regarding the culture of United States
If you are navigating to find a terrific lesson on GPS (global positioning system) that incorporates math, geography, and science, then you have finally arrived! This is an ideal STEM lesson in which high schoolers learn the history of GPS, read maps using Google Earth, convert latitude and longitude into minutes and seconds, practice triangulation and trilateration, and more! You will use the included PowerPoint and videos to teach, then turn learners loose to solve real-world problems.
In the final of five lessons about HIV/AIDS, groups create presentations to share data about the infection rates in the United States, examining demographic and geographic trends over the past ten years. Depending on how much time you want to devote to the research, groups can either use the provided data exclusively, or do more research using the websites provided. It is important to stress using only reliable and reputable websites during the research portion, as there is a lot of misinformation out there on the topic of HIV/AIDS.
Hold a free-throw shooting challenge in your engineering class! Each team must design a contraption that will fire off a "robot arm" or, more specifically, a catapult, to send a Ping-Pong ball into a basket. Use this as an opportunity to teach mature learners about precision and accuracy, and for the rest, about teamwork and engineering design. This would be particularly useful when learners are studying the Middle Ages in their history classes.
This resource incorporates a variety of worksheets on the Renaissance, from crossword puzzles and timelines to an activity designing a family coat of arms. If you are considering hosting a Renaissance fair in your class or you're searching for activities that offer a broad overview of the period, then this is a good resource to get you started.
Following directions from a colorful slide preparation card, beginning biologists examine three different live microorganisms: bacteria, yeast, and paramecia. This is not an unusual activity to do with your class, but if you are doing it for the first time or need a refresher, the lesson plan is so well-written that you will have no questions. Just make sure to order your live specimens early enough to have them on time.
