This lab is designed for students to learn the three types of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. It was created for middle school Earth and Space Science. However, it can be used in a physical science classroom as well.
This fun jeopardy game can be used as a review for the geology unit on the rock cycle. It's a great activity to involve students in the classroom and give them the essential ideas needed for a summative assessment test. It even has the jeopardy
This computer activity is designed for middle school students studying the earthquakes in Earth and Space science. Using the National Geographic website, students work through various activities to understand how earthquakes are created, measured,
This 5E model lesson answers the lesson essential question: How does natural selection create changes in a population? Students are engaged by a word splash, explore a creative outdoor activity on "Stick-Worms" and are able to explain the steps of
This fun project allows students to use their knowledge of plate tectonics: formation of landforms, plate boundaries, natural resource deposits, to create their own super continent. This project can be done as a group or can be done individually.
This fun activity ties in with the 5E lesson plan on Natural Selection. Students go outside and pretend to be "sticky birds" and search for "stick worms" or toothpicks. Students can graph their results and answer the analysis section. Fits
This document was designed for middle school Earth and Space science students learning about the properties and characteristics of minerals including hardness, luster, streak and color. Using the website, students are able to read and learn how
At the beginning of each lesson of rocks, I would pass out this graphic organizer and have students use their textbook or another handout to complete the graphic organizer. It provides space for students to write out important vocabulary such as:
In my science classroom, students are required to find science newspaper or online articles and cut/print them out weekly. They are required to read the article and complete the worksheet attached. It provides students the opportunity to connect
A quick meteorology worksheet that can be used for a review of the five major types of precipitation: rain, snow, sleet, hail, & freezing rain. Students can use their notes or other teacher provided resources to complete the worksheet. I would
This quick project allows students to work with others and learn more about a particular astronomer. Students must use computers or other resources to find the information, and I have the students create a poster to present the material to the rest
This is a graphic organizer was created using the Inspiration Application and is a great tool to help students understand the composition of the atmosphere and layers of the atmosphere. This can be used at anytime while teaching meteorology in an
This document was created for a computer website that helps students understand the topic of plate tectonics in Earth and Space science. Students read and learn about plate motion while completing the worksheet. The website also provides examples
This is a great activity to introduce natural selection in the unit of evolution for middle school life science or high school biology. Students work in pairs and use the vocabulary words to generate possible relationships about natural selection.
This PowerPoint with 39 slides was designed for a meteorology unit in Earth and Space science. It covers all basic information on how tornadoes and hurricanes form. It also includes a few slides about lake effect snow.
This anticipation guide was created for middle school life science and it could be adapted for high school biology. It is a great way for students to activate prior knowledge on natural selection and evolution before reading a particular text on
This powerpoint was created for the Earth and Space science unit on plate tectonics. This powerpoint includes information on the theory of plate tectonics, transform, convergent, and divergent plate boundaries. Includes pictures to help students
This assignment was created for older students or more advanced. Students are required to find a science article from a newspaper or online source and read it. Then, the students must write a "one-page memo" summarizing the article. It gives an
