#### As Cold As Ice

Do scientists really change their minds when presented with new evidence? Young scientists learn about two competing theories they need to decide between. They perform a simulation and have access to actual field data. Then, scholars...

Lesson Planet

#### Aliens: We Come in Peace

Scholars practice opening their minds to observations and make reasonable claims during an out-of-this-world lesson. After group discussions, pupils perform an experiment, relying on their observational skills, and present their findings...

Lesson Planet

#### All Charged Up

Most have felt a static electricity shock, but what actually causes it? Scholars observe, develop a hypothesis, experiment, and learn about static electricity. Through multiple short writing samples, they describe static electricity in...

Lesson Planet

#### Airplanes and Airstrips Part 2

Table the decision to land. Pupils form flight crews by matching up different representations of linear equations. Given a set of coordinates for an airstrip, the crews determine the equation of the line that will position their planes...

#### Teaching Playwriting in Schools

The world is a stage, and so is your classroom! Hone the skills of the next generation of Tony® award winners with a set of exercises, reference pages, writing prompts, and excerpts from famous plays.

Lesson Planet

#### Get Your Techno On

Desert regions are hotter for multiple reasons; the lack of vegetation causes the sun's heat to go straight into the surface and the lack of moisture means none of the heat is being transferred into evaporation. This concept, and other...

Lesson Planet

#### Balancing Chemical Equations

Just like the old saying goes, "What goes in must come out." This simulation allows pupils to balance chemical equations. The introduction gives three examples before scholars switch to game mode, pick their level, and continue to...

Lesson Planet

#### Organ Systems

Blood passes through the kidneys about 300 times a day. Show your class how the kidney and bladder work together to filter blood in the excretory system. This 19th video in the series explores how the circulatory and respiratory systems...

#### Fire Ecology on the Rim

An engaging unit on wildfires includes three sections, including a background section with eight lessons and five activities, a field experience section with 13 lessons and five activities, and a conclusion section featuring an analysis...

Lesson Planet

#### Stickleback Evolution

About 70 percent of the genes of the stickleback fish are the same as humans. In the video, scholars further explore the stickleback fish and its history, from being removed from Loberg Lake to their change and comeback. Over time, these...

Lesson Planet

#### 2D and 3D Shapes

What a great assessment to give young mathematicians in order to test their knowledge on two- and three-dimensional shapes. Learners name various shapes, identify the number of edges, faces, and vertices, match an unfolded version of a...

Lesson Planet

#### Plastic Bags

Paper or plastic? Explore the environmental effects of using plastic bags through mathematics. Learners manipulate worldwide data on plastic bag consumption to draw conclusions.

Lesson Planet

#### Linear and Exponential Modeling with Two Variables

Hands-on activities allow beginners to model and graph equations with two variables. The instructional activity begins with evaluation and discussion of prepared linear graphs. Next, learners use math manipulatives to generate data,...

Lesson Planet

#### Function Operations

How on earth do functions explain climate change? Classroom discussion ties global warming and climate change to functions. Learners practice skills using function notation before groups compete in a game.

Lesson Planet

#### Recognizing the Connections among Function Representations

Functions are all fun and games! The lesson stealthily disguises a formative assessment as an entertaining card game. Learners must use their knowledge to make connections among different representations and the related functions.

Lesson Planet

#### Functions Represented by Situations

What good are functions in the real world? Learners take real-world situations and investigate the associated function. Documentation of real-world scenarios helps learners connect key mathematical vocabulary words with certain functions.
