The Cornell Doodle Notes are completely No Prep- and scaffolded for different levels...just print and either show the corresponding Powerpoint presentations or share these presentations with your students via Google Drive/Classroom.
For the fun and memorable procedure-writing activity, you will need a large set of classic building blocks (like Legos).
The Bag-O-Chemistry lab activity is a great one for the beginning of the school year as it is an easy procedure to follow and it produces an exciting reaction! You'll need solid calcium chloride (pool chemical from Home Depot!), baking soda, sandwich bags, and Phenol red indicator solution (https://www.flinnsci.com/phenol-red-indicator-solution/#productDetailsContainer).
The lesson on differentiating scientific theories and laws is collaborative, easy to prep, and very effective!
For the Graphing Great Whites activity, students will utilize the shark tracking database Ocearch. They will collect data and practice graphing different types of data using 5 different graph types (line plot, bar graph, scatterplot, pie chart, line graph).
The Investigating Superstitions with Science lesson and assessment walks students through the important components of experimental design and asks them to design an experiment to investigate the validity of a superstition or Old Wives' Tale! The peer-editing assignment will help to drive home the big ideas!
A 'Follow Your Curiosity' bulletin board banner is included as a free bonus!
Thanks for looking!
