Lesson Planet: Curated OER

Ice Ain't Easy

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are introduced to the laws of thermodynamics. The 1st law of thermodynamics states that the energy must be conserved when two objects of different temperatures come in contact. If one object gains energy, the other object must...
+
Lesson Planet: Curated OER

Breathing Victory

For Teachers 7th - 8th
Students discuss anaerobic respiration and how it relates to sprinting. After discussion of related processes, students create a brochure that explains the complex processes behind every muscular interaction.

The Math Reaction

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students use the reaction time to figure out problems. They use the following example to get them started with reaction time: the edge of a ruler is placed near a person's thumb and index finger and, without warning, the ruler is...
+
Lesson Planet: Curated OER

Running on Metrics

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students use the metric system to convert equations. They use a conversion table to change from metric units to the units they are more comfortable with (Fahrenheit temperatures, miles, quarts, pounds.) Students use algebraic equations...
