In this lesson, students will explore the density of substances as a model for understanding the mass to light ratio as a predictor of dark matter. They will measure and calculate mass and volume to calculate the density of a foam ball. Students... (View More)

This educational wallsheet illustrates Newton's Third Law of Motion. The accompanying activity is an experiment in which students create a balloon and straw rocket. Students must figure out how to shoot the balloon from the back of the classroom and... (View More)

This educational wallsheet illustrates Newton's First Law of Motion. In this experiment, students will discover the properties of inertia and motion, and see how they have very important real-life applications. The activity is complete and... (View More)

This activity has two purposes: challenge the learner to develop a procedure for investigating a research question and to learn more about factors affecting the dynamics of air in motion. It demonstrates that warm air and cold air differ in weight... (View More)

This experiment is about contaminiation. Learners will model the process of verifying clean on a macroscopic level by using a small Secchi (se-key) disk and will read about how the Secchi disk is used in environmental science and compare this with... (View More)

This is a lesson about infrared radiation. Learners will investigate invisible forms of light as they conduct William Herschel’s experiment and subsequent discovery of infrared radiation. They will construct a device to measure the presence of... (View More)

This lesson is comprised of three parts grouped to enable student understanding of classifying organisms. In part one of the lesson, students classify imaginary organisms represented by a mix of breakfast cereals, candies, nuts, raisins, etc.... (View More)

In this activity, students will observe the relationship between temperature and metabolism. The subjects for this experiment are Saccharomyces cerevisiae, one-celled organisms more commonly known as baker's yeast. By observing the presence of... (View More)

Students create a physical model illustrating soil water balance using drinking glasses to represent the soil column, and explain how the model can be used to interpret data and form predictions. Using data from the GLOBE Data Server, they calculate... (View More)

This lesson is about meteorites. Learners will experiment with simulations that illustrate how chondrites and asteroids formed in the early solar system. It is intended for learners to observe and describe the meteorites in the Meteorite Sample... (View More)
