Middle schoolers add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers. They find the square and the cube of numbers. They create a game incorporating computation on rational numbers. Everyone works together to write and evaluate expressions. Note: the associate video is only available via purchase, but the other activities hold enough value to support the lesson without it.
Student use MY NASA DATA to obtain precipitation and cloud type data. They create graphs of data within MY NASA DATA. Students compare different cloud types, compare precipitation, and cloud type data They qualitatively describe graphs of the precipitation and cloud type data.
Use interactive online tools to help physicists understand the Law of Conservation of Energy. They watch a homemade video featuring a science teacher singing a song about energy conservation (consider having them make one as extra credit), and predict what the law states. What do learners think the two main types of energy are? Discuss the formula to determine work, potential energy, and kinetic energy. Go through some sample problems together and give them the worksheet to practice on their own. On the next day, scholars review these concepts and discuss total energy and energy transformation. There is another linked set for them to complete in class or as homework. On the third day, scholars apply these skills to an online interactive skate park simulation, changing variables to examine the effect on the total energy.
This nicely-done computer based letter writing worksheet has learners fill in each blank with a noun from the word bank. There are 20 sentences. They complete instructions for writing a letter using the computer, and use words such as operating system, document, spell checker, envelope, and monitor.
Students analyze computer music. In this music history activity, students access the Tennessee Electronic Library website and search computer music. Students write a short essay summarizing the information you found. Include what you learned about limiting your search results.
Youngsters develop a deeper understanding of subtraction upon completion of the activities in these lessons. They see how subtraction relates to their world, which is one of the best ways to really learn something! This fantastic series of lessons allow learners to dive deep into the world of subtraction through in-class games, hands-on activities, computer programs, and demonstrations by the teacher.
Students examine the ways in which computer folders and files help people organize and retrieve information. In this computer folder lesson, students are introduced to the computer as an important resource. Students discuss what a file and folder are and take turns making a file to put inside their folder. Students then review ways of how to retrieve information on the computer.
Why have your writers analyze the themes in literature in boring prose when you can have them practice their creativity and writing skills by producing an explication of a novel’s theme through verse? Start by explaining different types of poetry and poetic devices they can use, and discuss the most important parts of the novel that your readers can explore. They write, collaborate, revise, and submit their creation to the instructor. Modification can be made to have your middle schoolers create a visual representation of their theme or, instead of a written assessment, the class can present their findings through a poetry slam.
During your eighth grade physical science curriculum, introduce learners to lighting systems and have them research those that are in use at school. They conduct experiments to find out how much electricity is used by each of the different types of lighting used. They list ways to reduce electricity usage. This resource has potential as long as the maintenance department is available to your class for interviewing.
Students explore different types of government. In this government instructional activity, students discuss the role of government in modern society, identify different types of modern governments, and play a game based on the information gleaned from the instructional activity.
Young geometers investigate and apply properties of quadrilaterals. After a review and discussion of key terms, students use a computer applet to explore four-sided figures and classify them according to their attributes. The exploration can be done individually or in groups.
