Activity 3 Teacher Guide: It's Just a Phase In this activity, students will construct models of the way water molecules arrange themselves in the three physical states. Students will understand that matter can be found in three forms or phases (solid, liquid, and gas). Using physical models, students will be able to explain the molecular behavior of ice, water, and water vapor. Background Curriculum: Engineering is Elementary. Museum of Science, Boston Posted on August 27th, 2009 by axb At Boston’s Museum of Science, the Engineering is Elementary (EiE) project aims to foster engineering and technological literacy among children. EiE is creating a research-based, standards-driven, and classroom-tested curriculum that integrates engineering and technology concepts and skills with elementary science topics.
Worksheets and Study Guides Bioscience Mrs. Davis – West Orange HS 411N A Starter Pack for Perfect STEM Lessons TEACHER: I’m trying to design a STEM lesson. I just don’t have a clear picture of what to do. I’ve heard that statement a time or two, and I work with teachers to try to answer it. Like most challenges you face, there’s no magic formula, but I’ll share a list of tips I try to remember when I’m writing STEM lessons. This is not a comprehensive list (despite my MiddleWeb editor’s fanciful title for this post). Cellular Respiration An overview of the processes of cellular respiration showing the major pathways and the places where ATP is synthesized. The Krebs cycle occurs at the cell membrane of bacterial cells and in the mitochondriaof eukaryotic cells. Each of these sausage-shaped organelles of eukaryotic microorganisms possesses inner and outer membranes, and therefore an inner and outer compartment. The inner membrane is folded over itself many times; the folds are called cristae. Along the cristae are the important enzymes necessary for the proton pump and for ATP production.
10 Hands-On Workshops for Kids at Maker Faire - Make: Whether you’re a young maker yourself or the parent of one, I’m sure you’re just as excited about Maker Faire as we are. While we invite people of all ages to roam throughout the Faire, you’ll definitely want to check out the plethora of exhibits specifically aimed at young makers. Here are 10 exhibits that you won’t want to miss, as they’re all offering hands-on workshops that teach skills like circuitry, coding, soldering, and more! The Coding Clubhouse The Coding Clubhouse is a nonprofit dedicated to inspiring kids to code. You’ll have the opportunity to interact with some of the latest in robot and virtual reality technologies, as well as find out more about opportunities and resources for young coders.CircuiTricks At the CircuiTricks exhibit kids will have the chance to draw out their own working electrical circuits with only pencil and paper, using the graphite inside the pencil to complete the circuit.
The Science Spot LESSONS: General Lessons - Length, mass, volume, density, review pages (Student worksheets provided) Conversion Practice (Student worksheets provided) Metric System Lesson Plan Links & Online Resources General Lessons My metric unit includes labs on length, mass, volume, density, and temperature as well as conversions (metric to metric and metric to English). Students have many opportunities to use rulers, triple-beam balances, and other science equipment to learn how to use the metric system of measurements. Lesson #1 - Length Length Presentation (PPT) - I use this presentation to review the basic units of length and how to measure distances. Length Worksheet (pdf) - Student worksheet that goes along with the presentation.
Matter Matter is everything around you. Atoms and molecules are all composed of matter. Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. If you are new to the idea of mass, it is the amount of stuff in an object. We talk about the difference between mass and weight in another section. Matter is sometimes related to light and electromagnetic radiation. Organize Your Whole House with One Trip to the Dollar Store There are any number of excuses I can make for why I haven’t taken the time to organize our house: not enough time to do it all, don’t know where to start, organizational supplies are too expensive, etc. It’s easy to get discouraged and quit before I am even started. But the truth is, the supplies to get an entire house in order don’t have to cost a small fortune. Most of them can be found right at the local dollar store. To prove this to myself, and to you, I took a trip to my local Dollar Tree. ONE trip, no going back for forgotten items or things they didn’t have in stock.
Papakū Makawalu - Edith Kanaka‘ole Foundation Haae wale ka hanauna lolo,o Papahulihonua,o Papahulilani,o Papanuihanaumoku (Kumulipo – Wā ʻUmikūmākolu) Join the conversation at our Papaku Makawalu blog: Comparing Two Ecosystems Introduction: There are many different types of biomes on the planet that are characterized by a certain weather pattern, dominant plants and dominant animals. These areas are also called ecosystems. In some areas, particularly those biomes that are close on the map, you will have some overlap of plant and animal species. For instance, deer can be found in grasslands and in temperate forests.
