Students lean about parts of the atom, periodic properties, periodicity, and the basic Bohr model by drawing their own Bohr models of the first 18 elements within a periodic table. To help reinforce key properties, there is also a dot diagram
Students will research plate tectonics, plate boundaries, earthquakes, land-forms, and tsunamis in this PBL. Once the students have completed their research, they will create a storyboard outlining how they will produce a video explaining their
I designed the Chem guides so that my Physical Science students could make one as we reached that section of the material. This amounted to about one per chapter, so this bundle -- all pictorial instructions with accompanying written instructions --
Students have to design a wind powered car, using simple supplies, in order to save Thanksgiving following a city-wide blackout.
A simple design plan (with a post assessment for future redesigns) and a comparative graph for the class is included.

Students make habitats out of snacks foods representing the requirements of an organisms habitat. Students have the opportunity to apply what they have learned while using their imaginations to envision the habitat they are trying to create. A
Student will perform a simple lab where they are asked to use balls of similar size but different masses to make craters in flour pans as a representation of the Moon's surface. Each ball represents one of the three main types of meteorites and
In this lab, students will be asked to identify and review the states of matter of the materials, rock salt, sand, and water that they will be using. As the materials are changed (mixed or separated), they will be asked to identify the type of
