Projectiles: Target PracticeLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Angry Birds prepared them, but now pupils must prove their skills with projectiles! Scholars test different variables to determine which ones impact the distance the projectile flies. The experiment provides connections to kinetic and...
Heat, Temperature, and ConductionLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
How does heat move from one item to another, even when the items are in different states of matter? Pupils experiment with adding washers to hot water and adding hot washers to room temperature water to observe the heat transfer.
Things Are Not Always What They SeemLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Science is magic that works. Magical color-changing beads and a coffee can that follows voice commands are just two examples of magic tricks that rely on science. After completing a hands-on activity and an experiment investigating the...
