Margaret Pezalla-Granlund, a Minnesota artist, came up with this really fun and surprising activity using graphite from a pencil, connected with a Pico Cricket to tell a story: "The first time I saw someone draw a line with a pencil to connect a circuit, I didn't think about it much. But then I experimented, and realized I could make a drawing, then attach a sensor, a Cricket, and a sound recorder -- and have the drawing tell a story!" Pico Cricket is required. No programming experience is necessary, this activity is for beginners.

This guide is intended to assist teachers and supervisors for grades 5-8 as they prepare curriculum, instruction, and assessment for intermediate-level content and skills of the New York State Learning Standards for Mathematics, Science, and Technology. This Core Curriculum is not a syllabus. It addresses only the content and skills to be tested by the Intermediate Level Science Assessment. The document identifies process skills and describes their alignments with standards, key ideas, and performance indicators. It includes a description of the content of the Intermediate Level Science Examination and a set of examples of activities intended to build skills to support standards on scientific inquiry, the living environment, and the physical setting.

The Department of Ichthyology at the Florida Museum of Natural History administers the International Shark Attack File (ISAF), a compilation of all known shark attacks. More than 3,200 individual investigations are currently housed in the File, covering the period from mid-1500's to present. Users can access maps, graphs and statistics on worldwide shark attacks, great white attack and attacks on divers. The ISAF also provides information on the relative risk of shark attacks, how to reduce the risk of shark attacks and how, where and when shark attacks typically happen. This is a useful site for users interested in finding comprehensive information regarding worldwide shark attacks.

This lesson was created to enable students in middle school to research the possibility of sustaining life in outer space. These students would be about 11 or 12 years old. The students would address the questions: What essentials would be necessary for maintaining the space station, what would it look like and why, how would food be supplied and replenished, what health factors might need to be addressed, how would they fuel the space station and various other instruments, how would families live, would there be schools, what kinds of recreation would there be, what rooms would there need to be and how would they escape in case of an emergency?

This is an activity about structures in space. Learners will construct two different types of trusses to develop an understanding of engineering design for truss structures and the role of shapes in the strength of structures. For optimum completion - this activity should span 3 class periods to allow the glue on the structures to dry. This is engineering activity 1 of 2 found in the ISS L.A.B.S. Educator Resource Guide.
