Hey everyone! I have another great virtual learning STEM activity. I've been teaching STEM virtually since April, so most of everything you see here has been done online. Next up - how to make a lava lamp! Homemade lava lamps are super easy to make and a great way to discuss density, viscosity and effervescent reactions. Homemade lava lamps do not require much. In this resource you will find:

  1. Lesson Plan
  2. Icebreaker
  3. Right Question Institute
  4. Video on Materials and Methods

Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties. Observations could include color, texture, hardness, and flexibility. Patterns could include the similar properties that different materials share.
Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. Examples could include an unbalanced force on one side of a ball can make it start moving; and, balanced forces pushing on a box from both sides will not produce any motion at all. Assessment is limited to one variable at a time: number, size, or direction of forces. Assessment does not include quantitative force size, only qualitative and relative. Assessment is limited to gravity being addressed as a force that pulls objects down.
