Students watch programs from a series titled "Planetary Landers". As a class, they view a poster of various vehicles that have made their way into space. In groups, they brainstorm the characteristics that should be included when designing a vehicle of this sort. They are introduced to new vocabulary and answer discussion questions to end the lesson.
Students measure shadows and explore the altitude of the sun. In this sun activity students will graph the length of shadows and solar altitude against time.
Eighth graders engage in a class discussion while going through a PowerPoint on Mississippi's contribution to space exploration. In this Space science lesson plan, the students will also participate in Brain Pop quizzes where they will answer questions in small groups over historical astronomers and the International Space Station. The class will end with two questions being ask as a closure to the instructional activity.
Students investigate the possibility of life existing on other planets. They conduct research using a variety of resources. The lesson includes an overview that is used for classroom discussion practices. They tell the teacher how to find life on another planet.
Students explain how Hubble telescope captures images from space. In this space science lesson, students use the internet to view space photos. They debate on an issue raised by the teacher.
Students investigate this lesson that features Dr. Verner Suomi, telling the story of why he became known as the Father of Satellite Meteorology. The activities include hands-on learning about satellites, applying knowledge of satellite imagery, and understanding more about occupational jargon.
Students create a model of the solar system. In this space science lesson, students determine how to make the models up to scale. They discuss the challenges encountered in making them.
Students identify the steps involved in the scientific method. In this physical science lesson, students compare and contrast their description of scientific process with what they saw in the video. They share their findings in class.
Students explore Afro-American history. They identify the commonality between African, Carolinian and Cleveland Black culture. Students explore the water cycle, oceanography, hydrology and bio-geochemical processes. They discuss the interconnected nature of Earth cycles and draw parallels between historical accounts and present day events.
Young scholars explain the importance of the five main biogeochemical cycles. In this chemistry lesson, students discuss how ions are transported in the environment. They design an experiment to collect data on eutrophication.
Learners research information about the Big Bang theory. In this space science lesson, students create a comic strip describing the origin of the universe. They evaluate research resources for correctness and relevance.
Students explore the Solar System and examine the characteristics of al the planets. Through research and discussion, they create catalogs of the Solar System's components. Next, students use their findings to create Powerpoint versions of their catalogs. The lesson plan concludes with students creating travel brochures of a chosen planet.
Students explore the International Space Station online. In this space program lesson, students research manned space missions. As a whole class, students log in to Second Life and virtually explore the International Space Station.
Students engage in a lesson in which volcanoes be explored and examined. After watching a video, students create volcanoes out of clay.
In this system of equations worksheet, students solve 2 problems by creating a system of equations for each problem in order to determine the average intensity of flares from the sun and the average power from a satellite transponder.
Eighth graders study the objects in our solar system. In this space lesson students identify and describe planets, then classify them as terrestrial or gaseous.
In this solar magnetic field worksheet, learners are given 2 equations and use them to find the magnetic field strength and the Bp and Bz for given conditions. they express their answer using scientific notation.
Ninth graders, in groups, research a Canadian astronaut, developing a profile of their astronaut for presentation in a learning center. They visit the other groups' centers to explore more astronauts.
In this universe worksheet, students read about the big bang theory and the evolution of the stars from the elements. Students answer four critical thinking questions about the beginnings of our universe.
