Pupils study Arab science and the origin of the modern scientific method. For this science lesson plan students fill in their own House of Wisdom books.
Third graders discover the process thinking about science experiments, and why they are important. They work in small groups using incline planes and a small toy car to design one scientific question that can be answered through experimentation. They complete a worksheet showing the process of experimentation.
Students complete another Read about Science with a focus on toys. Individually, they read a book of their choice about toys and define new vocabulary. To end the science lesson, they complete a KWL chart and share what they gathered with the class.
Students analyze and study a shoe box of simple objects. They experience a homemade alternative to a company box of commercial kits for science. Each student creates their own shoe box of simple objects to share with their classmates.
In this grade 4 science test worksheet, 4th graders complete 44 multiple choice questions covering a variety of 4th grade science concepts.
Elementary learners complete pre-reading, writing, and post-reading activities for the book My Science Project. They complete a writing assignment, go over vocabulary, respond to short-answer questions, have discussions, and more.
Students explore the solar system by conducting Earth science experiments. For this Sun lesson, students identify the different seasons on Earth and discuss their purpose and cause. Students create a sundial and observe the changes to their own shadow over several minutes.
Coming up with ideas for Science Fair projects might seem daunting, but there are many lessons that can get students on the right track.
Students explore the effects of the sun as they move their bodies and observe their shadows. In this hands-on science lesson, students create and experiment with making shadows larger and smaller with themselves and various objects.
In this science worksheet, 5th graders complete multiple choice questions about flight, astronomers, measurement, temperature, and more. Students complete 25 questions.
In this science worksheet, students locate 50 science terms on a word search. The words are general science words and include words from life, physical, and earth sciences.
Here is a terrific presentation that covers many aspects of the 3rd grade science curriculum. In it, 3rd graders answer 40 multiple choice questions that deal with scientific investigation, reasoning, and logic. The questions are totally appropriate for 3rd graders, and they get instant feedback for the answers given. This is a nicely-designed PowerPoint. Highly recommended!
Science is an ever-developing field, and what better way to keep track of the latest scientific advancements and discoveries than with a simple tap of a finger?
Physical science fans find out how supercooled water droplets in the clouds can become crystalline snowflakes. They learn about the categories of snowflakes (plates and columns) and the variables that determine their patterns (temperature and humidity). Sarah Konrad, a glaciologist and one-time Olympic skier, is interviewed. Alternating between graphic animations and actual video footage, the super-cool film is sure to fascinate! Incorporate these science concepts as you discuss the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
Learn about the center of mass and projectiles by examining the movement of Olympic figure skaters! Physics and skating fans will be delighted as they watch super athletes perform unbelievable feats. Arrows and text appear to highlight direction and velocity, a narrative voice explains the concepts, and upbeat skating music plays in the background of this top-notch video. Use it when you are teaching mechanics to beginning physicists, or simply show it in any physics class to inspire the class to learn more and to demonstrate how this branch of science applies to sports.
Alpine skiers have engineers looking out for their safety and for their performance. Physics and materials engineers consider how to dampen the vibrations that can be caused by bumps in the snow, vibrations that can cause the athletes to lose time, or worse, lose control. They use nanomaterials and shock absorption to improve strength, flexibility, and stability of moving parts, taking a scientific perspective on the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. The awe-inspiring combination of sports and science will foster a winning spirit in your engineering or physics pupils. Consider showing the clip before assigning a project to meet NGSS engineering standards for middle school.
What a thrilling job for an engineer: designing advanced athletic competition suits! Which materials can most reduce friction and drag, and yet still be flexible enough to move with the athlete's body? With attention focused on Shani Davis, a gold-medal winner for speed skating in previous Olympic Games and hopeful for the Sochi 2014 games, viewers see all of the places that friction needs to be reduced. This would make a terrific enhancement to your physical science or engineering class, and it could inspire your class to pursue a career in engineering for sports.
Mix things up in your physical science class by introducing mixtures. The three types are defined: suspension, colloid, and solution. It all depends on the size and type of the involved particles. With attractive animation and an engaging narrative, viewers will be fully immersed in mixtures. Consider following the lesson with the making of a macaroni salad lunch!
In this veterinary science activity page instructional activity, students focus on the life skills associated with ethical decision making. They describe their favorite pet animal, how to care for their pet based on its needs, complete 14 true or false questions and a career scavenger hunt. They decide on a service activities and read about additional resources.
Students read Bartholomew and the OObleck by Dr. Seuss and experiment with solids and liquids. In this science and reading lesson, students observe and discuss the properties of liquids and solids. Students make predictions of what happens to a cornstarch and water mixture. Students record how Oobleck, from the story feels.
