Teacher Appreciation - Tom AndrewsLesson Planet
3 mins 5th - 8th
Spangler interviews Tom Andrews, a middle school science teacher. Mr. Andrews demonstrates a few simple activities that can be used to teach your class about the independent variable in a scientific investigation. Then the class members...
Liquid Nitrogen Experiments: InsulatorsLesson Planet
5 mins 4th - 8th
What is an insulator? What materials make the best insulator? Watch as Joanne and Steve conduct a simple experiment to see if a plastic cup insulates better than a styrofoam cup. Make a prediction: which do you think will be the better...
Scientific Method, Control and VariablesLesson Planet
5th - 7th
Middle school scientists bathe in Bikini Bottom with SpongeBob and friends. They define steps in the scientific method. They identify independent variables, dependent variables, and the control for science experiments being carried out...
Generating Hypotheses and Experimental Design 1Lesson Planet
7th - 12th
Here is a thorough exercise in forming hypotheses for scientific investigations. Young scientists consider factors that may be related to the question they would like to address. They think through measurable changes that may result from...
VARIABLES AND PATTERNS, USE AFTER INVESTIGATION THREE. DISCRETE OR CONTINUOUS LINEAR RELATIONS.Lesson Planet
7th - 8th
Students discover for which kind of linear function is appropriate to use the "scatter" or the "connected" term. In this lesson, students investigate functions using variables, patterns book, graph paper, rulers and the graphit program.
Design Detectives - Identifying Experimental Variables and ProceduresLesson Planet
8th - 10th
In this experimental design instructional activity, students are given 9 scenarios. Students identify the independent variables, the dependent variables, the experimental groups, the control groups and the step by step procedure for each...
A Biological Experiment Involving Brine Shrimp-Conclusion QuestionsLesson Planet
8th - 10th
Students answer questions about experimental design and brine shrimp data. In this biological experiment lesson plan, students identify hypotheses, variables, and controls of an experiment. They analyze given data about brine shrimp...
Bellwork for Week 2-Experimental Design and MeasurementsLesson Planet
7th - 9th
In this experimental design and measurement worksheet, students answer questions about independent and dependent variables, they write hypotheses, they identify instruments that measure mass, weight, and volume and they calculate the...
Integrating Physics-Observing and Experimenting to Find RelationshipsLesson Planet
8th - 11th
In this experimental relationship learning exercise, students read about direct and indirect relationships between variables in experiments. They answer three questions about relationships between variables.
