In this lesson, students use an egg to represent our planet Earth and better understand the ratio and proportion of the crust, mantle, and core. Students will also be introduced to the scientific theory of plate tectonics.
In this lesson, students classify objects that they collect during a scavenger hunt on their school playground according to living and non-living. They will then create real and pictorial graphs that represent their data.
In this lesson, students use a compass to determine the direction of a magnetic field at any point in space, explain how two magnetic fields combine, and predict the location of areas where two fields can cancel each other to leave no resultant field.
In this activity, students use felt boards to match animals with their appropriate habitats. Students are then given an opportunity to mix up the animals and habitats and have other students determine the correct combinations. Students discuss why each of the mixed-up combinations will not work.
In this problem-solving activity, students design a device that will accurately and quickly deliver a specific load from one location to another by using non-traditional resources. Students will also understand the importance of power and energy in society.
