Engage your students with 7 hands on science investigation using the Next Generation Science Standards. They will love learning when they get the chance to build a balloon car, take a core sample of a cupcake, create Slinky waves and swim through a polluted river!
What will they learn? How energy travels, how our landscapes change, to make a model of a wave, how humans impact the environment in positive and negative ways and how to collaborate with their peers. Keys concepts in Life Science, Physical Science, Earth and Space Science and Engineering are explored. All labs include writing, speaking and listening tasks.
The 7 investigations contains step by step procedures, standards, teacher background, video links and student lab sheets for students in grades 3-6. Investigations can be abbreviated or extended to meet your schedule. Labs use simple, inexpensive materials and objects from the recycling bin!
