Seventh graders describe how water flows through the ground, what an aquifer is and what soil properties are used to predict groundwater flow. They consider the affects of pollution on groundwater supplies and write a letter drawing attention to a source of pollution.
Students discuss flooding and its causes. They view a Powerpoint presentation about floods and prevention methods. After creating a model with clay and pans, they investigate river behavior in various terrains with different amounts of water. They simulate real world conditions by modifying the riverbed with levees.
Student uses MY NASA DATA to obtain precipitation and cloud type data. They create graphs of data within MY NASA DATA. They compare different cloud types as well as precipitation types. They describe graphs of the precipitation and cloud type data.
Fourth graders study the water cycle and the different processes involved, specifically evaporation. They explore the processes of evaporation through hands-on collaborative activities and relate learning to life through experimentation with evaporation.
Fourth graders study the water cycle and the different processes that are involved, like precipitation, evaporation, etc. They conduct an experiment observing the water cycle in action and write a hypothesis, observations and conclusions. They draw a picture that shows how the water cycle works.
Demonstrate to your middle school science learners how chalk breaks down in a weak acid. Discuss what affects acidic rain might have on ecosystems. Lab groups then choose one of two questions: "How does acid precipitation affect an aquatic ecosystem?" or "How does acid precipitation affect terrestrial ecosystems?" They work together to design and perform an experiment to answer their question. This is a stellar lesson on acid rain, and it reinforces practice of lab skills and the scientific process.
Students describe the stages in the hydrologic cycle. In this earth science lesson, students identify the different uses of water in their area. They explain the impact of climate change to water cycle in their community.
Learners create a presentation about acid rain's effect on rocks. For this earth science lesson, students explain the formation of acid rain. They discuss the effect of elevated pH on various water organisms .
Students differentiate the different phases of matter. For this chemistry lesson, students conduct several hands-on exercises to discover how matter transforms when mixed together. They identify the different stages in the water cycle.
Young scholars explore different natural and manmade disasters through a webquest. In this earth science lesson, students explain their causes. They also discuss how disasters affect society. 
Here is a 114-slide PowerPoint that covers the proper use of articles, singular and plural nouns, and rules of capitalization. Your students should gain valuable practice from working through the examples present in the slides. This is an impressive teaching resource!
Young environmentalists examine the biogeochemical cycles: carbon, nitrogen, phosphorous, and water. Explanatory notes and colorful diagrams are presented for each, followed by a blank diagram that is filled in click-by-click as a reinforcement. After teaching the cycles, time is spent on limiting nutrients and eutrophication in aquatic ecosystems. This commendable PowerPoint will educate and arrest the attention of your high schoolers.
Try these cool writing lesson ideas that promote creativity and increase vocabulary.
Inspire children to learn and create by teaching the history of female inventors during National Inventors Month.
What a great way to discuss the rainforest! Learners discuss the importance of adaptation in the environment and how it is linked to survival. They use critical thinking and inference skills to place animals and insects in the different strata of the rainforest based on diet, body modification, and prior knowledge.
Fourth graders generate an oral presentation on the weather. In this weather lesson, 4th graders watch the weather for a week and record the data on a chart. Students give a weather report at the end of the week.
Students explore weather terminology and the jobs that are associated with it.  For this weather lesson students write about thunderstorms and make a tornado. 
It's raining! It's pouring! Your class will not be snoring when viewing this presentation. Cloud formation and types are explained in the first half. Forms of precipitation are detailed in the second half. Concepts are explained thoroughly and the overall presentation is attractive. Consider replacing some of the photos that are not very crisp to make this PowerPoint a top-notch resource to use with your meteorology unit.
Students read about a town where no one ever goes hungry because the sky provides food. They participate in various activities to explore weather, healthy and unhealthy foods, and create a database.
Seventh graders take an outdoor observation walk around the campus and take soil samples. Working in groups , they conduct experiments with rocks and soil that demonstrate the effects of different types of erosion.
