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.
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.
Modeling the Path of Digestion
Students model the path of digestion using household items.
Building a Watershed
Students will model the effects of human activity on watersheds.
Using interactives, students will demonstrate that gravity is the force that governs the motion of our solar system.
Matter and Energy - Elements versus Compounds
Given illustrations or descriptions, students will differentiate between elements and compounds.
Matter and Energy - Density
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.
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.
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.
Given diagrams, scenarios, descriptions, and illustrations, students will identify the historical development and evidence that supports plate tectonic theory and relate plate tectonics to the formation of crustal features.
Students will explore biodiversity concepts through several activities including a video, a card sort, think-pair-shares, food webs, and four corners.
Drumming Up Some Sound Energy!
Students will explore sound energy by creating their own drums using a variety of materials. Then, students will listen for the loud and soft sounds that each of the drums creates.
Increasing and Decreasing Energy
This resource provides sample activities for teachers to use in helping students to identify and investigate the effects of increasing and decreasing amounts of light, heat, and sound energy on an object.
Food Chains, Food Webs, and Energy Pyramids
This resource provides flexible alternate or additional learning opportunities for students to diagram the flow of energy through living systems, Seventh Grade Science TEKS (7)(5)(C).
