Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures is used to solve the problems on this worksheet. A diagram depicts laboratory setup for collecting gas over water. Young chemists perform calculations for the hypothetical experiment. Ideally, have learners complete this worksheet and the carry out a similar experiment in the chemistry lab.
Students investigate pressure and volume as they relate to gases. For this pressure and volume lesson plan, students observe multiple demonstrations related to air pressure. The develop an understanding of the relationship between pressure and volume in gases as Boyle's Law states and how a manometer and barometer work.
Students design plastic shoes to walk on eggs without breaking them. In this pressure lesson, students consider all the factors needed to design shoes to walk on eggs without breaking them. Students calculate the PSI pressure, the force or body weight and the surface area of the shoe they designed. They test their shoes on the eggs.
Students experiment with electricity to understand lightning. For this lightning lesson, students show how static electricity causes lightning. Students discuss questions about their experiment and gather important facts. Students recognize the dangers in lightning and how to be safe in a lightning storm.
"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.
Groups of young oceanographers get to use action figures to experiment with the property of buoyancy! This memorable lesson plan provides detailed background information, a link to the laboratory worksheet, and thorough instruction prior to the group activity. It can also be used with younger learners if you leave out the discussion about balancing the forces that act on objects in water.
Students revise letters focusing their revision on comma and periods usage. In this creative grammar instructional activity, students watch a video on commas and periods, write a letter to a partner without the use of commas or periods, and revise a letter adding commas and periods where needed.
Students learn new words through many different games. For this lesson about vocabulary, students will have an opportunity to reinforce word study. Students make their own dictionary with new words by making ABC books, or figure out unfamiliar words by sounding them out with the help of a six-step strategy. Three other games are also included to help encourage word practice making this a great resource for teachers.
Students investigate underwater habitats. In this underwater habitat lesson plan, students study Aquarius and design their own underwater habitat that can sustain life. Students work in groups and present their habitats to the class. Students justify their project and answer questions about how the habitat is constructed.
High schoolers plot data to construct and interpret a graph about vestimentiferans at cold-seep sites in the Gulf of Mexico. In this deep sea lesson, students plot data provided for the growth of tubeworms. They use the graphs to determine growth rates and ages of the tubeworms.
Young scholars research the evidence for prehistorically formed methane hydrates contributing to global warming. In this climate change lesson, students work in groups to research methane hydrates, global warming, The Cambrian Explosion, and The Paleocene Extinction. They present the results of their research and discuss how the topics are related.
Compare various types of biological diversity in a coral reef and calculate a numeric indicator that describes the diversity found in coral communities. Your class can work in groups to look at the abundance and distribution data of species in two communities. This lesson plan gives the opportunity to study both the biological topics and statistical mechnisms.
