This activity is a field investigation where students list plants and animals they observe. Students will organize their data as producers, consumers, or decomposers and create a food web showing how they affect each other. They will predict what will happen if the food web becomes imbalanced by extinction or over population.

Investigations is a complete K-5 mathematics curriculum, developed at TERC in Cambridge, Mass. It is designed to help all children understand the fundamental ideas of number and operations, geometry, data, measurement, and early algebra. The curriculum has four major goals: to offer students meaningful mathematical problems; emphasize depth in mathematical thinking; communicate mathematics content and pedagogy to teachers; and expand the pool of mathematically literate students. This site includes descriptions of the units in each grade, K through 5; ordering information; and information on professional-development workshops designed to facilitate introduction of this curriculum.

The instructions provided here are of devices that have been built for Jefferson Lab's Science Education program. The difficulty of construction varies from project to project. Anyone attempting to construct these devices needs to know and understand how to safely operate the tools required to construct them. If you do not know how to properly operate power tools or a soldering iron, you should not attempt to build any of these devices.

In this simple chemistry activity (page 1 of PDF) about acids and bases, learners will mix a baking soda and water solution and use it to paint a message on a sheet of white paper. Once the paint has dried completely, learners reveal the secret message by painting over the entire sheet of paper with grape juice. Relates to the linked video, DragonflyTV: Colorblind Dogs.

Using indirect observational methods, learners distinguish between charged and uncharged objects. This lesson uses magnetic marbles to represent charged particles and iron filings to represent a method of detecting "charged" particles. Use this activity to explain how particle physicists detect and study super small, subatomic particles.

Students learn about radar imaging and its various military and civilian applications that include recognition and detection of human-made targets, and the monitoring of space, deforestation and oil spills. They learn how the concepts of similarity and scaling are used in radar imaging to create three-dimensional models of various targets. Students apply the critical attributes of similar figures to create scale models of a radar imaging scenario using infrared range sensors (to emulate radar functions) and toy airplanes (to emulate targets). They use technology tools to measure angles and distances, and relate the concept of similar figures to real-world applications.

In this multi-day activity, identified on the Infrared Yellowstone website as Lesson 1, students use observation skills to determine what information can be gathered from images taken in both visible and infrared light. Students compare the visible and infrared light images. As a result, students discover that the relative temperature of water from a geyser, as well as the nearby landscape, is revealed in the infrared images. This lesson features background information for the teacher, background information for students, a mini-exploration of Infrared Image Technology, image sets, assessment information, student worksheets, extension and transfer activities, and additional resources.

In this activity on page 7 of the PDF, learners use iodine to identify foods that contain starch. Compare the starch content of a ripe banana, an overripe banana, milk, and flour mixed with water. Use this experiment to introduce learners to starch and how our bodies use starch to break down nutrients during digestion. <BR> Safety notes: DO NOT eat any tested foods or the iodine. Wear goggles. Follow the safety tips on the bottom of page 7 as well as Milli's safety tips on page 5.
