The Disappearing Kelp Forest

For Teachers 6th - 9th Standards
Learners observe the effect "El Nino" left on kelp plants and sea urchins. They analyze the data collected by researchers, by graphing it on a TI calculator. Before graphing and analyzing the data, you may want to revisit the events of...
Lesson Planet

Match Me!

For Teachers 6th - 8th Standards
Young learners explore motion graphs in this lesson. They investigate distance-time plots as they move in a specific way in front of the CBR in an attempt to make a motion plot that matches a given plot. Pupils explore the connections...
Lesson Planet

Shedding Light on the Weather with Relative Humidity

For Teachers 6th - 8th Standards
Learners study weather using a graphing calculator in this lesson. They collect data for temperature and relative humidity for every hour over a day from the newspaper, then place the data in their handheld calculator and examine it for...
Lesson Planet

Does Clear Water mean Healthy Water?

For Teachers 5th - 9th Standards
Learners test their local aquatic site to determine its water clarity. They collect a water sample and measure its turbidity using a sensor, then they repeat the experiment to obtain a second turbidity reading to find the average value.
Lesson Planet

The Effect of Acid Rain on Limestone

For Teachers 6th - 9th Standards
Pupils investigate the pH of rain water in this earth science lesson. They collect rain water from their area and explore the pH when lime stone is added, then they will use the data collected to conjecture as to the effect of acid rain...
Lesson Planet

Which Way?

For Teachers 6th - 8th Standards
Middle schoolers explore distance-time plots. In this algebra lesson, they will investigate how different types of motion affect the distance-time plot.
Lesson Planet

What's Your Speed?

For Teachers 6th - 9th Standards
Learners explore the concept of distance v. time. They use a CBR to collect data on their distance over time, then plot their data using a scatter plot and find an equation to model their data. Pupils discuss what if scenarios which...
Lesson Planet

Light and Day

For Teachers 6th - 9th Standards
Pupils explore the concept of collecting data as they collect data on their graphing calculator about time, temperature, and light. Learners plot the data and create histograms and box and whisker plots to analyze the data.
Lesson Planet

Slow Down - Speed Up

For Teachers 6th - 9th Standards
Pupils explore the concept of distance and time as they use a CBR to mimic distance v. time graphs. Learners walk towards and away from the monitor to create various distance v. time graphs, then discuss what motion creates certain graphs.
Lesson Planet

Lemon "Juice"

For Teachers 6th - 8th Standards
Middle schoolers explore the concept of electricity in this lesson as they measure the electricity that a lemon gives off. Learners use volt meters to measure the amount of electricity coming from the lemon. Your class will also measure...
