In this earth science activity, students find the words that are expressed in the context of new vocabulary. The answers are found at the bottom of the page.
For this digging into science worksheet, students answer questions about roles and responsibilities to complete a task. Students answer short answer questions about bone excavation as an example to working together.
In this science materials activity, students answer true/false questions, and complete a chart name and giving examples of materials.
In this science vocabulary review activity, 4th graders match each term with its definition for ten terms reviewing sets 1-6 from other science vocabulary worksheets.
Students examine what it takes to be a rocket scientist and other related careers.  In this rockets  instructional activity students use the Internet to do their research.
Learners interpret data from a three-dimensional array of current monitors to determine an overall pattern of water circulation. They hypothesize what effect an observed water circulation pattern might have on seamount fauna. A very interesting and high-level science lesson!
Students examine a fruit-related Q & A Science Times article. They write their own food science questions and answer them in the same format as the article. For homework, they analyze their fruit consumption according to U.S. nutrition guidelines.
Students become more familiar with life science in the context of the scientific method which helps them to become familiar with the various kinds of life science diagrams they may see on a GED science test.
With spaces for both your science pupils and their parents to sign, this laboratory safety contract is a must-have for your science classes. Twenty-one rules applying to protection and hazard prevention are listed. Discuss them with your junior scientists and then have them take the contract home to share with their parents. Involving parents should emphasize the importance of these guidelines. 
Sixth graders explain the stages of the rock cycle. In this earth science lesson, 6th graders classify rocks according to their type. They create a model of the rock cycle using different methods and present this in class.
Students create a presentation about acid rain's effect on rocks. In this earth science lesson, students explain the formation of acid rain. They discuss the effect of elevated pH on various water organisms .
Second graders classify rocks according to their physical properties. In this earth science activity, 2nd graders explain why they classified them that way. They sort the rocks according to size and trace them on their worksheet.
Students simulate the movement of the Earth using their body motion. In this earth science lesson, students explain how this causes seasonal changes on Earth.
Building inquiry into your science lessons will make science concepts more concrete for your class.
Learners classify rocks as sedimentary, igneous or metamorphic based on physical properties. In this earth science lesson, students recreate the rock cycle using a set of stones placed on labeled shower curtain. They explain the different stages involved in the cycle.
Students create a collage of the carbon cycle. In this earth science lesson, students explore the history and significance of permafrost. They analyze a graph of climate trends and explain how climate change and permafrost thaw are connected.
Students create a topography map of their area. In this earth science instructional activity, students investigate the scientific bases of local legends. They interpret different topographical and shaded-relief maps.
Students differentiate transform, divergent and convergent motions. For this earth science lesson, students explain how geologists use these to analyze plate motion. They draw arrow on maps to represent the direction of plate movement.
Eighth graders explore how different body systems work together. In this life science lesson, 8th graders research the organs involved and functions of a body system they chose. They share their findings with the class.
Seventh graders research about the effect of climate on different ecosystems. For this life science lesson, 7th graders present their research by creating a poster, infomercial, skit or song. They discuss how organisms adapt to climate change.
