Glaciologist in Action (Lab)
Students participate in a hands-on lab in which glacier (ice) effects on the Earth’s surface is demonstrated.
How Newton's Laws Apply Every Day
Students collaboratively determine how the characteristics of a real-world job correlate with each of Newton’s Laws and why that is relevant to their own lives.
Newton's Second Law
Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.
Covalent Bonding: Electron Dot Diagrams
Given descriptions, diagrams, scenarios, or chemical symbols, students will model covalent bonds using electron dot formula (Lewis structures).
Convergent Plate Boundaries
Students will design and test models that will identify crustal features formed by convergent plate boundaries.
Full Speed Ahead
Students will use hover pucks to measure speed over a distance of six meters. Once speed has been calculated, students will determine velocity using the same data. Finally, students will be able to label all points of acceleration.
Types of Science Investigations
Students will distinguish between descriptive, comparative, and experimental investigations.
Given investigation scenarios and lab procedures, students will identify independent variables, dependent variables, constants, and control groups.
Given laboratory investigation scenarios, students will distinguish between scientific hypotheses and scientific theories.
Given field and laboratory scenarios and laboratory data, students will construct data tables and graphs, using repeated trials and means to organize data.
Conclusions and Scientific Explanations
Given laboratory investigation data, students will determine the best conclusion based upon that data.
Given investigation quantitative data, students will determine its degree of precision and/or accuracy and causes for uncertainties in measured data.
Tier I resource for teaching about what happens at plate boundaries.
Tier I resource for instruction on the lunar phases.
Matter and Energy—Chemical Reactions
Given descriptions or illustrations, students will investigate how evidence of chemical reactions indicates that new substances with different properties are formed.
Consumers and Producers
Students will investigate various ecosystems to determine what producers and consumers are, as well as their needs within an ecosystem.
Given examples, students will recognize the importance of taxonomy to the scientific community.
Taxonomy: Major Groups
Given illustrations or descriptions, students will determine the classification of organisms into domains and kingdoms.
Homeostasis: Ecological Systems
Given images, videos, or scenarios, identify and describe the responses of organisms, populations, and communities to various changes in their external environment.
Biological Systems: Homeostasis
Identify and describe internal feedback mechanisms involved in maintaining homeostasis given scenarios, illustrations, or descriptions.
