Why Study Nurse Shark Mating?
Discover basic information about nurse sharks and read articles describing recent studies in the Florida Keys. To show their textual understanding, learners write grant proposals as if they are scientists wanting to research nurse shark mating behaviors.
Letting Off Steam
Learners examine the concept of transpiration. They work together to complete an experiment in which they see water loss in plants. They record their observations and discuss their conclusions.
Compost in a Bag!
Fourth graders experiment to see which objects decompose. In this compost lesson, 4th graders observe the changes of labeled objects in a bag. Leave the objects for one month and record the changes by observation and weight. Students note the items that changed to compost.
Food For Keeps
Students explore food. In this processed and fresh foods lesson plan, students discover how some foods are processed and how they differ from fresh food. The complete group activities and an individual reading assignment. This lesson plan includes background information, a reading excerpt with worksheet, and a list of vocabulary words.
Evidence Revealing the Composition of the Atom
Investigators use indirect evidence to guess what is occupying a sealed box. You could also use a set of plastic Easter eggs to encase the unknown items. Another terrific activity involves having students drop a pencil on a sheet of scattered pennies, in a large-scale way modeling the Rutherford experiment. This is just a sample of the learning experiences explained in this mini-unit. It is a highly valuable addition to your chemistry curriculum for introducing atomic structure.
Playing Hot and Cold
Students read about homeothermy. Through research and poster projects, they gain insight into the diversity among mammals and the ways specific mammals survive in their native climates.
Transition Metals (III)
Students discuss transition metals, where they are located on the periodic table, some of the element in the group, and some characteristics of the group. They work in groups to conduct an experiment in which they mix transition metals and water together to create a homemade hand warmer. Groups experience an exothermic reaction and discuss the results of their experiment.
Periodic Table of the Elements Transition Metals III
Students investigate properties of transition metals. In this chemical reaction lesson, students study the properties of transition metals. They will predict and observe a chemical reaction using a transition metal and explain how the chemical reaction observed is a property of the transition metal.
A problem from a chemistry textbook is posed on the screen. Sal solves the problem which attempts to calculate vapor pressure using the Ideal Gas Law. The rate of evaporation of water given a certain volume, temperature, and pressure is the focus of the problem.
The ways that animals adapt to their environments is quite remarkable. In this life science lesson, fifth graders take a look at some of the ways that aquatic animals that live in Arctic or Antarctic waters survive. They perform an interesting simulation using bags of "blubber" to see how one particular adaptation helps them the most. The simulation requires basic materials that are easy to acquire.
Through Students' Eyes: Images and Symbols of Korea
Students examine national symbols for Korea and America and study Korea. In this Korean study lesson, students research the national symbols for the United States and Korea using the given websites. Students research North and South Korea, its history, and its current existence. Students write an essay for their research.
How to Build a Hydrophone
The materials and procedures for building a hydrophone, an underwater sound collecting device, are provided in this resource. Have high school oceanographers construct the underwater microphone to pick up sound waves. Then take them out to study the sounds of the sea.
Finish This Picture: Seal
In this recognizing details worksheet, learners examine the two pictures and finish the picture of the seal on the right with the same details as those in the picture of the seal on the left.
Silly Sammie Seal
In this seal worksheet, students match deratives and intervals to their answer. They match equivalent problems. This one-page worksheet contains 22 problems.
ELD Lesson Planner: Animal Habitats
Explore the ocean and the woods with this ELD lesson, which involves three Houghton Mifflin short stories ("Nights of the Pufflings," "Seal Surfer," and "Two Days in May"). Your third graders will enjoy reading about animals in their natural habitats, and will be quick to learn the necessary vocabulary. The lesson addresses three listening and speaking ELD standards, as well as reading and writing ELD standards, and is differentiated into Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced levels.
Talking Trash About the Oceans
Students create a community service advertising campaign that raises awareness about the importance of keeping trash out of the marine ecosystem. They work in teams to create different ad campaigns geared toward particular target audiences.
Use this art instructional activity to study insolubility and density. Combining water-based paint and mineral oil will cause a fun and interactive painting. This is a great art project to incorporate during a science unit.
Students research animal life in the frozen seas. In this researched based lesson, students use the Internet to create a poster about an animal that lives in an Arctic or Antarctic environment. Students will focus on the behavioral and physical adaptations that are impacted by particular environmental conditions. Students will present findings on how an animals adaptations have made them survive in an extreme climate.
Students build simple electromagnetic reed switch motors. In this physics lesson, students explain how it works. They cite real world applications of reed switches and relays.
Photosynthesis in a Jar
Young scholars simulate Joseph Priestley's experiments using a bell jar. They demonstrate that oxygen is necessary for fire and animals but that given time, plants can create oxygen, allowing fires to burn and animals to breathe.
