Newton's Second Law
Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.
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.
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.
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.
Save the Factory!
Students will design an experiment to test the outcome of friction in force and motion. The students will create an inclined plane demonstrating their knowledge of mechanical energy and the effects of gravity on an object. Students will use previous knowledge of friction to complete their task of stopping their object. Critical thinking skills will be the focus of the lesson as students will have to utilize their scientific problem-solving skills to make decisions regarding their experiment.
Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) Vertical Alignment
Click below to learn about the TEKS related to the unit and Research Lesson. The highlighted student expectation(s) is the chosen focus for the Research Lesson.
Cell Homeostasis: Osmosis
The focus of this resource is cell homeostasis and, more specifically, osmosis. Students investigate the concept through a virtual lab, recording and analyzing data, creating sketches to represent vocabulary, and discovering the role of aquaporins in water transport through the cell membrane.
Objects in Motion
This resource provides flexible alternate or additional learning activities for students learning about the concepts of distance, speed, and acceleration. IPC TEKS (4)(A)
Newton's Three Laws of Motion
This resource provides alternate or additional learning opportunities for students learning the three Newton's Laws of Motion. It includes a collection of interactive materilas, videos, and other digital media. Physics TEKS, (4)(D)
What’s Trending with the Elements?
This resource, aligned with Chemistry TEKS (5)(C), provides alternative or additional tier-one learning options for students using the periodic table to identify and explain trends.
The Arrangement of Elements: The Periodic Table
This resource provides flexible alternate or additional learning opportunities for students to interpret the arrangement of elements on the Periodic Table, Eighth Grade Science TEKS (8)(5)(C).
Learners compare a variety of prokaryotes and eukaryotes to determine similarities and differences among and between them.
Monohybrid and Dihybrid Crosses
Learners calculate the probability of genotypic inheritance and phenotypic expression using mono- and dihybrid crosses.
Mechanisms of Evolution Beyond Natural Selection
Learners analyze and evaluate the effects of other evolutionary mechanisms.
Evidence for Evolution
Learners analyze and evaluate how evidence of common ancestry among groups is provided by the fossil record, biogeography, and homologies, including anatomical, molecular, and developmental.
What's Happening with the Weather?
This resource shows how to observe and describe weather changes from day to day and over seasons.
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.
