Animal Farm STEM - Windmill Project
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

 This is a hands-on project that uses George Orwell's novel, Animal Farm, as the touchstone text. Students work in groups to construct a functioning windmill that can generate electricity. Each student has a role based on the characters in the book. There are also segments of the project that focus on extracting key information from the text.

This lesson is partially aligned to standard 7.P.2.3 — Recognize that energy can be transferred from one system to another when two objects push or pull on each other over a distance (work) and electrical circuits require a complete loop through which an electrical current can pass. It focuses primaryily on energy transfer and electrical circuits. It does require some preparation and supplies such as a circuit kit, and holiday lights, wire stripper, allumnimum foil, bracket fasteners and tape. This is an engaging resource and does not utilize technology.

Rating
0.0 stars

Students will design a working trebuchet for maximum accuracy, distance and force using the engineering design process. Students will utilize the measurement formulas to calculate kinetic and potential energy and therefore create a trebuchet for a specific function (ex: hitting a target, knocking down a wall or launching for distance).

Electric Circuits - Guided Inquiry
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In this electric circuit guided inquiry students will investigate what an electric circuit is, the main parts of a circuit and the difference between series and parallel circuits. Students will work in small groups and create a circuit using materials provided by the teacher. Students will draw and label a closed and open circuit, a series of circuits, and parallel circuit. Students will then meet with a different small group and share their results.

Hack A Solar Circuit
Rating
0.0 stars

This 1-2 hour activity was developed by Science Friday educator collaborative for middle school science. Students will "reverse-engineer a solar circuit to build a simple, inexpensive, and lightweight device that is powered by the sun’s light...in order to...integrate their circuit into a moveable origami structure so that the movement of the origami serves as the switch to the circuit."

Simple dollar store solar stake lights can be used for the disassembly which can be demonstrated by the teacher or completed in small groups. By reverse engineering the solar light, students explore the components and how they work together. The second activity has them sketching and explaining what they discovered.

Resources are included that explain solar cells and circuits more in depth (including a text webpage from American Chemical Society, a video from SciToons on YouTube, and an online circuit simulation from PhET, among other choices for your class' needs).

The student engineering "notebook" and rubric are downloadable in Powerpoint and Word form, not just pdf.

Investigating Electricity

In this activity students will first brainstorm all the terms (vocabulary) they can think of related to electricity. Next, they will work collaboratively in groups to try to define these terms. Then in groups they will create word webs drawing correlations between the various terms. Groups will discuss how light bulbs work, how they light up, write down their ideas. Next, students will try to draw what they believe a circuit is and how it works. They will need to write several sentences concerning their thoughts. Then they will be given a battery, wires and a light bulb and asked to check their designs. Students will explore what they believe series and parallel circuits are, write down their ideas and draw some pictures. They then will be given materials to try and create these circuits. Finally, students will predict and test differences in bulb brightness in a variety of series and parallel circuits.

It's Electric! (AIG IRP)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

Within the physical science strand of 7th grade science, students focus on understanding forms of energy, energy transfer, and transformation and conservation in mechanical systems. In this task, students investigate “mystery boxes” and use a student-constructed circuit tester to determine the location of closed circuits. Students will then create their own “mystery boxes” including both series and parallel circuits. Finally, students will then create study guides for other content areas using their understanding of closed circuits. The application and interdisciplinary nature of this lesson allows students to creatively build meaningful connections while promoting 21st Century Skills. This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.

Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson students investigate how the distance of stretch in a rubber band at rest relates to the distance the rubber band travels after being released. Students will be pulling rubber bands back to five different stretch lengths. They will then measure how far the rubber bands fly when released from the different stretch lengths and then record the results down in a data table.
