Communication in Space
Students will work in cooperative groups to create an accurate arrangement of mirrors that work together to relay a laser beam from a Mars space station to Earth’s Mission Control, which will model utilizing satellites in space for communication, an accommodation necessary for manned space exploration.
Stages of Ecological Succession
Students will collaborate on a electronic slideshow presentation and observe, record, and describe the role of ecological succession including both primary and secondary succession.
Building a Watershed
Students will model the effects of human activity on watersheds.
Modeling the Path of Digestion
Students model the path of digestion using household items.
Students will explore biodiversity concepts through several activities including a video, a card sort, think-pair-shares, food webs, and four corners.
Using interactives, students will demonstrate that gravity is the force that governs the motion of our solar system.
Introduction to Plate Tectonics
This resource is intended to use for Tier I classroom instruction.
This resource can be used, in conjunction with best practices, for Tier I classroom instruction.
Dichotomous Keys Murder Mystery
A resource for the instruction of (7)(11)(A) involving the use of dichotomous keys for identification.

Given diagrams, data, or scenarios, students will calculate density to identify unknown substances.
Potential and Kinetic Energy
Given descriptions, illustrations, or scenarios, students will compare and contrast potential and kinetic energy.
Given descriptions, illustrations, or scenarios, students will identify energy transformations, such as how energy in a flashlight battery changes from chemical energy to electric energy to light energy.
Given diagrams, data, or scenarios, students will calculate average speed using distance and time measurements.
Matter and Energy - Metals, Nonmetals, and Metalloids
Given illustrations or descriptions, students will compare metals, nonmetals, and metalloids using physical properties such as luster, conductivity, or malleability.
Changes in Motion
Given diagrams or scenarios, students will measure and graph changes in motion.
Changes in Speed and Direction
Given descriptions, illustrations, graphs, charts, or equations, students will demonstrate and calculate how unbalanced forces change the speed or direction of an objects motion.
Work and Force
Given descriptions, illustrations, graphs, or charts, students will contrast situations where work is done with different amounts of force to situations where no work is done, such as moving a box with a ramp and without a ramp or standing still.
Matter and Energy—Food Chains, Food Webs, and Energy Pyramids
Given scenarios and descriptions, students will be able to diagram the flow of energy through living systems, including food chains, food webs, and energy pyramids.
