Students will measure plant growth as the plant grows toward a light opening in a box ot a box with a maze inside, as compared to control plants grown outside a box.
Students will make a model of a reservoir system. They will also add a water treatment component and discuss how water moves through the system.
Students will study some of the properties and reactions of acids and bases by conducting the following four experiments: preparing a dilute solution from a more concentrated one, performing a neutralization reaction, analyzing a solution by the technique of titration, and determining the pH, pOH, [H+] and [OH-] of acid or base solutions.
Students will investigate comparative anatomy of organisms - visually, verbally, and kinesthetically - and how these organisms have changed through adaptation and evolution. To meet this objective, each group of students will perform seven independent activities at seven separate stations.
Students will learn about adding descriptive detail to their writing by exploring the differences between writing pieces with descriptive detail and without descriptive detail. Students will choose one of their own written pieces to add descriptive detail.
Students will work in collaborative groups to conduct research and create an informational brochure about an aspect of air pollution.
Students will use protractors to measure angles that are found in the classroom. Students should have prior knowledge of types of angles and correct ways to use and read a protractor.
Students will examine land use scenarios and discuss the effect they would have on a local river. After learning about stewardship, they will discuss possible improvements to the land that would decrease the negative impact on the river's water quality.
Students will focus on the structure of the periodic table and the valence electrons in an element. Using this information with the octet rule, students use the power of the table to predict ion formation and the oxidation numbers associated with the ions formed. They will also study the emission of electromagnetic radiation and create models of atoms from clay.
Students will focus on the structure of the periodic table of the elements and the names of the portions - metals, nonmetals, and metalloids - as well as the group names and special series names.
Students will explore the idea that differences in masses of individual atoms can be averaged to yield the atomic mass of an element.
In this lesson, students describe mean as a balance point and decide which measure of center is appropriate for a given purpose.
In this lesson, students use the Internet and other resources to research characteristics of six different biomes. The students will create a poster for one of the biomes and make a presentation to the rest of the class.
