This lesson plan is part of the DiscoverySchool.com lesson plan library for grades 6-8. It focuses on our attempts to reach intelligent life by sending messages into space. Students look at a visual of the message that has been sent from the Arecibo radio dish in Puerto Rico, and discuss what it means and the possibility of getting a reply. It includes objectives, materials, procedures, discussion ... Full description.

This lesson demonstrates the link between the tilt of the Earth's axis to the plane of the ecliptic and seasons of the year, length of day, effectiveness of sunlight, and polar day and night. It discusses how the inclination of the Earth's rotation axis causes seasons of the year, by varying the length of the local day and the angle at which the Sun's rays arrive on the surface of the Earth, and to ...

This introduction to coordinates on a sphere explains how latitude and longitude define locations on Earth, and similarly, how declination and right ascension define locations on the celestial sphere. The lesson also introduces systems of time-keeping, e.g. local solar time, time zones, universal time and the International Date Line. The objectives are for the student to know how any location on Earth ... Full description.

This two-part lesson contains a qualitative discussion of the distinction between weight and mass, followed by a description of a 1973 mass measurement in a zero-g environment conducted by astronauts aboard a space station. The second section describes a similar classroom experiment. Students learn to distinguish between weight and mass and that both are properties of matter and all observations suggest ...

After participating in this activity, students will be able to explain the process of conduction using a molecular model and explain that different materials conduct at different rates. They will also be able to identify air as a poor heat conductor (an insulator). The instructor guide contains detailed background material, learning goals, alignment to national standards, grade level/time, details ... Full description.

This instructor guide provides background material for a two-part activity in which students observe convective currents in water and learn that air can behave as as a fluid. Students will understand that temperature changes can cause density changes in water, learn that the same phenomenon happens in air, and understand that temperature-driven density changes will produce currents in a fluid medium. ...
