In this lesson, students examine the effects of erosion based on changing slope. Students will also observe sand movement along the coast due to waves.
In this lesson, students compare and contrast a coral reef and a kelp forest ecosystem and identify the abiotic and biotic factors within each.
In this lesson, students learn about kelp forest ecosystems and how organisms interact with each other in a kelp forest ecosystem. They will also learn about potential threats to these ecosystems and determine how humans can impact the kelp forests, both negatively and positively.
In this lesson, students learn about kelp forest ecosystems. They will also make observations of organisms within a kelp forest habitat via an aquariurm webcam and complete an ethogram based on an organism's observed behaviors.
In this lesson, students use chemical formulas for common compounds to experiment with how atoms come together to make molecules and compounds with unique properties and characteristics.
In this lesson, students learn about two different ocean habitats, the kelp forest and the coral reef. They will conduct observations via exhibit webcams and then discuss the needs of plants and animals found in these habitats and how these needs are met.
In this lesson, students will plan and carry out an experiment which tests the densities of 5 different water sample. After successfully completing the experiment, students will have five colors of water stacked in a straw and understand the relationship between salinity and density.
In this lesson, students compare the availability of renewable and nonrenewable energy sources, while illustrating the dilemma of searching for nonrenewable energy sources. They will also be Introduced to the concept of energy conservation at homes and in the community.
In this activity, students investigate states of matter and how heating and cooling affects different materials by making ice cream.
In this lesson, students set up a simple experiment to answer questions about how different surfaces on earth retain heat. They will practice taking measurements with a thermometer and test the heat capacity of water versus soil.
