Students will practice plotting the latitude and longitude of missing ships and airplanes that have been said to be victims of the Bermuda Triangle. At the conclusion of the lab students will be able to determine the validity of the Bermuda
My students love this activity! I have adapted this from a NASA lesson. I use remote controlled cars and set up an obstacle course in the classroom for students to simulate driving the Mars rover. To do this I blindfold the driver who can then
After several failed attempts to do the traditional lab with my students with a can filled with sand and a can filled with water, I developed this lab to be used with a simulation online. Students will need access to the internet to open the
In this lab students see how the density of an object will not change as long as temperature and pressure remain constant. The students use a chocolate bar to get the mass and volume and calculate the density and then continue to break the
In this activity students will use an online simulator to manipulate different parameters to see the impact an asteroid would make on Earth. They will explore how size, density, angle of impact, velocity of impact, and distance from impact site can
This lab can be used as an introductory lab to measuring skills. Students will use a ruler to measure objects, solve equations, convert centimeters into millimeters and identify observations and inferences.
