Young scholars 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. Young scholars research North and South Korea, its history, and its current existence. Students write an essay for their research.
A simple activity for introductory chemistry classes is thoroughly explained in this lesson plan. Each individual receives a sealed box containing an unknown object. Inquisitors use indirect evidence to draw conclusions. This activity is likened to the ways that chemists have come up with the current model of atomic structure. Use this as an anticipatory activity when introducing atoms to your general chemistry class.
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.
Students explore food. In this processed and fresh foods lesson, 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 includes background information, a reading excerpt with worksheet, and a list of vocabulary words.
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.
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.
Learners are shown how dissolved oxygen enters the water. They are taught the difference between a water sample that has been exposed to the air and one that has not. Students brainstorm what organisms need to survive. They use dissolved oxygen kits to test samples of water.
Students research animal life in the frozen seas. In this researched based lesson plan, 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 discover the meaning and symbolism behind the American flag. For this lesson on National symbols, students design a flag for their school, explain the symbolism they used, and distinguish the elements that constitute the US Flag. Students then research the Federal Flag Code and how that has shaped the meaning and usage of the US Flag.
Learners access prior knowledge and questions about space in a KWL. In this outer space lesson, students listen to readings about becoming an astronaut. Learners simulate some experiences of the astronaut though experiments. Students record their thoughts about being an astronaut in their journals.
A video featuring polar bears, walruses, killer whales, penguins, seals and more introduces a unit study of the Polar Regions. A KWL chart launches research into the three different areas (ice cap, tundra, and taiga) and animals that inhabit these chilly climes. Each class member writes and illustrates a fact on the polar region. Pages can be collected into a classroom Polar Animal Fact Book.
