This is the project handout and rubric for a "Find the Volume" Project.
Students are asked to find a real work example of a cone, cylinder, and sphere and make a visual aid with these items. The rubric is included to show students how they will be
Students are provided a list of careers that involve the STEM subjects and asked to research a series of questions about the career. After finding research, students will make a prezi (or other visual aid) to present their findings and interest
Part 1: Students define and categorize a series of numbers as rational or irrational.
Part 2: Students plot rational and irrational numbers on a number line
Part 3: Students work with a partner and take turns making up numbers and having their
Students work in a group to choose a genetic disorder to research. I have provided a list of the most common genetic disorders. The students are given a list of 11 questions to look up using reliable sources, becoming experts on the disorder then
My students were struggling with how to get rid of fractions, without a calculator, to solve equations. This activity has a table that "forces" the students to take a more step by step approach to get rid of fractions correctly using the LCM.
Everyday I do a "Do Now" or "Bell work" at the beginning of the bell followed by an exit slip to assess what students learned.
This document is the do nows and exit slips I made for one week of my Earth Science unit. The topic is Geologic Time but
Students find the volume of 12 real life objects including cones, cylinders and spheres.
They work with a partner to calculate diameter, radius, height, etc to calculate the volume of these objects.
This document is the recording sheet that I used
My students were struggling with the steps to getting rid of decimals (without a calculator) in order to solve an equation. This activity "forces" the students to take a more step by step approach in order to get rid of the fractions, and work with
Students complete foldable for a more interactive note taking of Matter vs Non-matter and Chemical vs Physical properties. My students used pages in their textbook to fill in definitions and examples. You can have your students use a textbook, or a
As an intro activity, or relationship building activity, students make "pretend tweets" to elaborate on the title "Be A Leader, Not a Follower"
Sets the tone for the classroom and is a great first day/first week of school activity. Students are
This activity consists of 17 stations with 1 practice problem at each. The practice problems consist of putting numbers in scientific notation and standard notation, as well as making computations in scientific notation.
Students were given 2.5
