#### Orienteering

Everything you wanted to know about orienteering, and more! Take your class on an adventure with this creative activity. You will need to gather some supplies and materials and maps for your specific location, but the unit sounds like it...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Create a Compass

Historically, humans have used many methods of finding due north. Using a hands-on activity, learners create their own compasses. They then test their compasses in their neighborhood or to assist with stargazing.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### How do I Prepare this Piece of Floor Tile to Lay on the Bottom of my Kitchen Sink Cabinet?

How can you place a rectangular tile around a pipe? Scholars first use a model of a kitchen sink cabinet to take measurements. Using a compass and their knowledge of circles, they then cut out a circle from a piece of poster board (which...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Post Assessment: Magnetism and Electricity

Time to know what they know! The final installment of a 14-lesson unit assesses the class's understanding of magnetism and electricity concepts. Items include both multiple-choice and open-ended questions on magnetic fields, electric...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Electricity and Magnetism Formative Assessment #2

Leave it to science to get scholars out of a jam. Young scientists use what they've learned about electricity and magnetism in the previous eight lessons in the series to build tools that will allow them to find their way out of the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Magnetic Fields: Making a Compass

What better way to understand how an object works than to make one! Learners take what they learned in the previous lessons and construct their own compasses. Using a needle, water, and styrofoam, they build and test compasses and verify...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Construct a 90 Degree Angle

There is more than one way to create a 90-degree angle. Using a compass and a straightedge, the video shows two ways to construct a right angle. The ways include using perpendicular bisectors and circle theorems. To wrap up, pupils...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Constructing Equilateral Triangles and 60 Degree Angles

Creating a 60-degree angle also creates an equilateral triangle. By watching the video, individuals learn the steps required to construct a 60-degree angle. The presentation shows that the process is the same for constructing an...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Loci Part 1

Where can it go? The first video on loci develops a definition and provides some quick sketches of the loci of all points with given characteristics. The presenter does an example of the loci of points a given distance from an L shape.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Loci Part 2

Closer to this point and farther from that one. Continuing with loci problems, a short video shows how to work problems that are not straightforward. The presenter works loci problems that result in a region that meets several criteria.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Constructing SSS Triangles

Creating a triangles is as easy as 5, 6, 7. Using a ruler and compass to measure off lengths, a short video shows how to construct a triangle with three specific side lengths. The example creates a triangle with side lengths of 5 cm, 6...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### How Did Polynesian Wayfinders Navigate the Pacific Ocean?

Imagine sailing around the world, or even around the Pacific Ocean, in an outrigger canoe without the the aid of a GPS? Or a compass? Or even a sextant? The Polynesians did. Find out how with an engaging video that details how they used...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Earth's Magnetic Field: Compass Poles

You'll be strangely drawn to this activity! Physical science pupils learn how compasses work in an interesting interactive. The content covers magnetic poles, Earth's magnetic field, and what would happen if Earth's poles swapped places.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Direction on the Earth: Using a Compass

Navigate the world of orienteering in an informative interactive. Earth science scholars learn practical direction skills, such as proper polar coordinates and pairing compasses with maps. The interactive map allows them to practice...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Make Your Own Compass

Scholars build a compass using a needle, cork, magnet, and a water-filled cup in order to locate the magnetic north and south.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Finding the Epicenter

The epicenter is the point on the ground above the initial point of rupture. The 10th lesson in a series of 20 encourages scholars to learn to triangulate the epicenter of an earthquake based on the arrival times of p waves and s waves....

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Plenty of Pentagons

Why are only four colors needed to color webs from regular pentagons, not five? An assessment task requires young mathematicians to first construct regular pentagons using a compass and straightedge, then has them consider a shape formed...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### The Electricity and Magnetism Connection

Magnets don't grow in fields, but magnetic fields are important to understand. The lesson covers the effect electricity has on magnetic fields. Scholars use a compass, magnets, and electrical wire to test magnetic fields and energy...
