Designing a Solar Environmental Home

Document: ScienceUnit2Template-Forces-1 Abstract:  This unit provides the students with an opportunity to develop an understanding of the physical ideas and concepts that were developed during the seventeenth century by Sir Isaac Newton.  Throughout the unit the students are constantly asked to explain familiar phenomena and situations by utilizing the concepts of force, momentum, work, mass, acceleration, and velocity.

Nitrogen Cycle Activity

Document: Nitrogen Cycle Activity Abstract: Each small group of students is given a set of materials including the 20 objects (black and white), 20 picture-cards, 20 nitrogen cycle component explanation cards, the 20 title cards for each nitrogen cycle component, heading cards for different environments such as the atmosphere, soil, water, etc., and many small arrows

Materials for Nitrogen Cycle Activity

Document: Science Unit 3 (Revised)-4 Abstract: Unit three is Exploring Change, specifically bonds, energy, and reactions. The change to be investigated will include indicators of chemical reactions as they relate to chemical bonding and energy changes. Chapters 7 and 8 cover ionic and covalent bonding respectively, while chapters 9 and 19 are the introduction to stoichiometry, chemical reactions. Again, a review...

Food Web Mobile Assignment

Document: Food Web Mobile Assignment Abstract: At the conclusion of the lesson, students will be able to: explain the main concepts of food webs and food chains. Describe the role of animals, plants, and other organisms in cycling energy and matter. Through a food web. Demonstrate this energy cycle by constructing model food chains and food webs. Predict what might happen if...

Ecological Succession Worksheet

Document: Succession Worksheet Abstract: Succession, a series of environmental changes, occurs in all ecosystems.  The stages that any ecosystem passes through are predictable.  In this activity, you will place the stages of succession of two ecosystems into sequence.  You will also describe changes in an ecosystem and make predictions about changes that will take place from one stage of succession to...

Heavy Metals Aquatic Environments Project

Document: Heavy Metals Aquatic Envirnments Project Abstract: You might know that lead can be toxic, and that you can get lead poisoning from eating or inhaling old paint dust. Lead is called a heavy metal, and there are other sources of heavy metals that can be toxic, too. Silver, copper, mercury, nickel, cadmium, arsenic, and chromium are all heavy metals...

Agricultural Land Use GRASP

Document: Agricultural Land Use GRASP Abstract: The student should be able to demonstrate that they understand and are able to describe the importance of agricultural land conservation and the need for informed decision making regarding how agricultural land is utilized and managed.   Students should also be able to describe actual and potential effects of human activities on agricultural land, including...

Habitat Activity

Document: Effects of a Closed Environment Lab Activity-1 Abstract: We must understand the interdependent relationships between photosynthesis and animal respiration before we can proceed in developing systems that will allow long term survival in space. Utilizing the processes of photosynthesis and respiration, students investigate living organisms in a closed environment.
