Building Soil Nature's Way: Exploring decomposition and soil healthLesson Planet
4th - 6th
Students explore decomposition and soil health by creating their own garden. In this agriculture lesson, students build a "lasagna garden" with organic matter found in the area and plant perennials native to their region. Students are...
Types of Chemical ReactionsLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Chemistry hopefuls experience four different types of chemical reactions: single displacement, double displacement, synthesis, and decomposition. They will apply identification tests to the products as well. While this is absolutely a...
Solving Equations Using Balance Scale, Decomposition, and GraphingLesson Planet
7th - 9th
There's more than one way to solve an equation — three, actually. Scholars learn how to solve simple linear equations in one variable using three different methods, which include using balance scales, using decomposition (e.g., turning...
Decomposition, Soil, and Life Cycle ResearchLesson Planet
3rd - 4th
Young scholars conduct background research on the decomposition process, soil composition, and the life cycle using the resources provided for Internet searches. They work in collaborative groups to research topics as a particular plant,...
Reduce Our Carbon Footprint, Let’s Compost!Lesson Planet
4th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
Roll up your sleeves and get a little dirty with this elementary and middle school compost lesson. All you need is a large plastic container, a couple old newspapers, some organic waste, and a few hundred worms and you're ready to start...
The Area of All Polygons Through Composition and DecompositionEngageNY
6th CCSS: Designed
To compose or decompose, that is the question. The fifth portion of a 22-part series presents area problems of polygons. Pupils determine how to compose or decompose the polygons into shapes whose area is easily calculated.
AP Chemistry Topic 6: Equilibrium, Review ExamplesLesson Planet
10th - 12th
A decomposition reaction and a graph of its concentration over time are given to chemistry scholars at the top of the worksheet. They are to determine different equilibrium concentrations and constants. This can be used as a class...
Thermal Decomposition of Calcium CarbonateLesson Planet
9th - 12th
In this thermal decomposition of calcium carbonate learning exercise, high schoolers perform three experiments on calcium carbonate, make observations and write the equations for each reaction. Students explain in detail what happened at...
2002 U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad National Exam - Part IIILesson Planet
9th - 12th
Two laboratory problems are put forth for chemistry students. They are to plan and carry out an experiment that will answer each of the questions. The first asks them to investigate a relationship between the surface area of a potato and...
What Happens to Your Body When You Die?Lesson Planet
4 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Your heart may not be pumping, but there are still many chemical reactions that continue in your body. An installment of a video series on chemical reactions describes the decomposition process of our bodies after death. It pays...
