In this activity, students will learn how to read a Celsius-scale thermometer, associate weather conditions and seasons with Celsius temperature ranges, and keep a record of temperature. Students will read the Celsius temperature each day and discuss how given temperatures "feel". They record the temperature by using a string of beads and a chart. Full description.

In this module, students carry out a number of activities that demonstrate the concepts of evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and soil moisture and runoff. The students then construct a terrarium as a way to observe the water cycle as a whole. Immediately following this, students use the Internet to acquire Real Time Data from the Olympic Peninsula in Washington which they can then use to describe ... Full description.

This activity gives students a hands-on look at why saltwater sinks as they create the smallest of ocean currents in a glass baking dish. They will see firsthand why saltwater is denser than freshwater and why salt sets the seas in motion. Students slowly add saltwater that has been tinted with food coloring to a glass baking dish that contains freshwater. The students then see that the saltwater ... Full description.

This game shows students the interdependence of animals and their environments. They will learn to identify and describe food, water and shelter as three essential components of habitat, describe the importance of good habitat for animals, define "limiting factors" and give examples, and recognize that some fluctuations in wildlife populations are natural as ecological systems undergo a constant change. ...

This lesson introduces students to properties of rocks, specifically weight and density. They will select a rock, make a list of words to describe it, estimate its mass and use a balance to check their estimates, write a story about what they have learned, and group or classify the rocks according to what they have learned.

This activity is part of a series of lessons in a continuing study of change. It is designed to give students hands-on experience manipulating and controlling the variables involved in the process of soil erosion. They will be able to identify variables that influence rates of change and use group consensus to design and build what they believe to be the strongest mountain possible. Full description.

This activity combines science and art to provide an understanding about why the sea is salty. Students will obseve how salt concentration increases in water and how the salt remains after the water evaporates. They will do a salt painting using water, salt, and food coloring to observe the evaporation process. Full description.

This lesson is designed to teach elementary students to make observations and form hypotheses by using the concept of trace fossils. Using tennis shoes to create different track types and patterns, students write stories and draw conclusions about what kinds of activities might have created such track patterns. Full description.

This set of lab activities aims to arm students in the fight against water pollution with knowledge about the characteristics of water and how it interacts with other elements in the environment, including pollutants. To become an Aquatic Crusader, there are experiments with common materials that teach the characteristics of water. These experiments involve: creating an underwater scope; cleaning ...
