Spice up a nutrition, biology, or cooking class with this hot topic: the science behind the spiciness of many beloved foods. There are actually two different types of spice, depending on the chemical compound causing the pain: alklyamides and isothiocyanates. The narrator speculates on the history of eating hot foods, as well as why we continue to eat them today. Use the accompanying Think and Discuss questions as discussion points or an assessment.
In a must-have app for any beginning earth science learner, you can study flashcards, play trivia, or try to feed a hungry chameleon with letters to fill in the blanks in a vocabulary spelling game. Covering many of the important introductory concepts in geosciences, this free app is fun and informative.
Whether you are helping your classes review for a life science test or looking to provide some additional support to struggling learners, a free and fun interactive app is something that aspiring biologists of all ages will enjoy.
Explore the history, scope, and ramifications of human conflict. Six thorough sections of articles originally published in Science Journal take learners through the stages of human conflict, and hypothesize about the future of mankind in the face of ever-expanding conflict in the world.
Students share their science expertise with elementary students in a conference format. Elementary students rotate through sessions of different science disciplines (Biology, Earth Science, Physics, Chemistry, Computers).
Students study science concepts as they are presented in poetic form. They write and present their own science poems to parents during Open House.
Students prepare and care for a classroom science corner. In this science lesson, students contritubute items to the classroom science corner, and invite other classes of students into their room to share their scientific items.
Students search for examples of social science in and around their school. They create a Social Science scrapbook of the eight social sciences, that includes news articles and summaries that focus on each social science area.
Third through fifth graders prepare posters to present at a science fair. Working with a partner, pupils conduct investigations and prepare a poster to present their findings. They rehearse their presentations, and add visual aids; charts and graphs that enhance their material.
High schoolers work to create a design that will protect an egg from being dropped from a one story floor. They test their prototype after it is completed. They write clear instructions and link aspects of the design process to the scientific method.
Ten questions which cover a wide range of science topics are here for you. Use this science worksheet to challenge your 3rd graders to find the answers to these perplexing questions. The use of the Internet will be required. Perhaps this worksheet could best be completed as a paired activity. The final question posed is about the person who discovered that germs are the cause of disease!
Here are ten science questions that cover a variety of themes. Learners must come up with short answers for 10 questions, then locate a picture of a Portuguese Man-of-War and make their own drawing of it in the space provided. An interesting combination of topics and tasks for one worksheet.
If you're looking for a comprehensive science exam for third graders that's in the standardized test format, this presentation is for you. This PowerPoint could be used as a preparation for an upcoming standardized test for your pupils. This is a solid test, but there is no answer key associated with it.
While your physical science class is studying mechanics, this would be a fabulous enrichment video for covering aerodynamics or friction. Mechanical engineers dedicate their time to developing Olympic-quality bobsleds to be as fast, but also as safe, as possible for this dangerous sport. Incorporate current events as you discuss the Sochi Winter Olympics as scientists.
If you are looking for a great way to present natural selection in humans, look no further. This handout is intended to accompany the 14-minute video The Making of the Fittest: Natural Selection in Humans, which can be found on the publisher's website. Before watching the video, learners read a page of information about sickle cell disease, then answer questions about sickle cell disease, and about the progress of science as a social process. Next, the video is shown, with pupils answering several higher-level thinking questions about concepts presented in the video.

Learners reinforce science concepts learned throughout the year using Movie Maker. Eighth grade students work with fourth grade learners in which they create a movie project about a science topic after completing a graphic organizer.
Scholars dicover the fact that they do not have to live on a farm or own a garden to do an agricultural science project. They research agriculture by using their reading skills and creative thinking. Next, they identify and analyze how different types of fertilizers affect plant growth and how various treatments change how fast seeds sprout. Pupils also identify how soil pH affects the pH of water in the soil.
