Objective Investigate how the distance of stretch in a rubber band at rest relates to the distance the rubber band travels after being released. Share your story with Science Buddies! Yes,I Did This Project! Fourth grade Lesson Bright Time with Circuits.

Background: Batteries and hand cranks can be used to move electrons through a bulb to cause the bulb to light.

Fourth grade Lesson Bright Time with Circuits

For a bulb to light, you will need to create a circuit. The circuit must include a bulb, a battery and wire. (For this lesson, I used tinfoil because it was what I had available. I had to express to my students they needed to be careful because the tinfoil would get warm) The wire must connect the plus side of the battery to either the bottom or side metal on the bulb. The other wire must connect the the minus side of the battery to whichever metal side of the bulb was not touched earlier. Fourth grade Lesson Creative Circuits. I had the lab ready with: One KLEWS Chart for each pair of students, a cup of multicolored LED 10 mm lights, 1 battery pack for each pair of students, enough sugar dough in baggies for each pair, several balls of conductive salt dough in baggies for them to be able to choose their colors.

Fourth grade Lesson Creative Circuits

I had my students gather their iPads, science notebook and their pencils and head to the lab. I had started the lesson in my classroom because I knew that the excitement was going to be a lot to reign in once we entered the lab and they realized they would be working with some really cool materials! I asked them to grab a KLEWS Chart and find a place to sit within their table groups. After they were seated, I opened up the Creative Circuits SB File to the first page. We reviewed each page, went over materials and the important rules about the LED lights.

We talked a little bit about how they thought it worked. We discussed different possibilities. Which Wild Cat Are You? Lesson Plan: Creating a Student Produced Weather Forecast. Intro & Objectives for the course: In this lesson plan, I will be walking you through the process of implementing a weather forecast video broadcast for your student run television production class.

Lesson Plan: Creating a Student Produced Weather Forecast

The final production will cover a wide range of real world techniques and examples and will teach your students how to create, manage and produce a professional weather forecast to insert into your news production. This lesson plan is designed for novice to advanced students and can be implemented in a variety of ways. Depending on the complexity of the final product you seek, this production can be tailored to the experience of your students and staff. By the end of the lesson, your students will learn how to act as a part of a television news team, gather information from outside sources, create custom graphics and package the final information into a weather forecast production ready for distribution.
