Measurement and Variation

Examine the concept of variation through observation and measurement. Middle schoolers will study a peanut and record any distinguishing characteristics visible as well as sketch their peanuts and describe them in writing. Their peanut is put in a bag with others and they try to identify it. Learners then receive 15-20 peanuts in which they make measurements and examine the variation in length of the different peanuts and the variation in measurements.

I subscribed to Lesson Planet after I started teaching science at my district's alternative school. Science isn't my specialty so it has been a real life saver! I am able to find lots resources to enrich my lessons! It's a tremendous time saver too! Why reinvent the wheel?
