Students examine salinity, temperature, pressure, and life in the ocean levels. They watch a video, explore various websites, conduct temperature and salinity experiments, complete a Venn diagram, and create a travel brochure.
Students research chosen scientific discoveries and then create an imaginative windsock model of the invention. Students describe how their technology was invented and the impact the invention made upon others. Students display their windsock.
Students study La Chatelier's principle and identify how carbon dioxide may affect pH.  In this coral instructional activity students complete a worksheet on pH and observe a lab.
Students explore and define methane hydrates and describe ways that it can impact their own lives.  In this methane hydrate instructional activity students create a molecular model and research methane hydrate. 
Students brainstorm what they believe can be found at the bottom of the ocean. Individually, they choose one of the four oceans to research the types of items found in them over time. To end the lesson, they make those objects into 3-D representations and present to the class.
"Scientist Stereotypes" could be another name for this lesson! Begin by drawing from middle schoolers' preconceived notions and media portrayal of scientists, and then explain that anyone can be a scientist. Even though there is an extensive appendix of information about different scientists, the lesson plan focuses a disproportionate amount of time on the stereotypes, even suggesting an experiment to discover whether or not scientists are "crazier" than "regular" people. 
Explore the benefits of physical activity and how it will affect your learners' health. Students track their physical activities for one week and then compare their results.  Collaboration with a math teacher woould be useful as it would allow for greater analysis of the data.
Students view pictures of animals as they complete the metamorphosis from a larva to an adult. In this metamorphosis lesson plan, students view pictures and in the end are able to match pictures of a larva stage to an adult stage in different animals.
In this gas activity, students use the gas laws to calculate the volume, pressure, or temperature for given gases. Students use the ideal gas equation in changing or constant environmental conditions. This activity has 16 problems to solve.
Students study seagrass beds and how humans affect them.  In this life science instructional activity students calculate the percentages of shrimp and red drum caught during shrimp trawling.
Students study the stories that go with masks from two cultures. They examine Native American masks used by tribes that lived in the Northeastern United States.. These include these Algonquian-speaking: Micmac, Pequot, Delaware. Chippewa, and Masochist.
Students compare the pressure of water at different depths and gain an understanding of how increased water might affect animals living in deeper waters. They participate in an experiment to show that depth, not volume, affects water pressure.
Students problem solve logic problems using a step by step process in which they act out a problem. They write down each step to of the logic problem to follow a chain of reasoning. They recognize logic arguments after completing the problems.
Young scholars investigate how heat energy affects the Earth and what happens to cold parts of the world. In this heat energy lesson plan, students complete 2 experiments with sunlight and read about animals in worksheets provided.
Students explore how principles of gas behavior relate to diving in order to plan safe underwater activities.
Learners examine an article on astronauts training in deep space brine then discuss what they learned.  In this investigative lesson students get into groups and design an exercise that includes isolation, silence and conflict resolution. 
Young scholars demonstrate the effect of heat on pressure. They use a 2-liter bottle and hot tap water to complete the experiments. They also discuss thunderstorm safety rules.
Young scholars explore some of Earth's extreme environments and the possible dangers they present. They describe some of the potential dangers found in extreme environments around the world. Students discuss ways to deal with potential dangers in extreme environments.
Students working together in groups discover what happens to their trash. They discover alternatives to throwing trash away and how to reduce the amount of trash they have during the day. They present their information to the class.
Students observe falling objects. They discover the rate of falling is based on air resistance and not the weight of the objects. They discuss how engineers use this type of information to design aerodynamic shapes.
