An engineering and design lesson for middle school (our 7th grade standards).
In the aftermath of a natural disaster, can you engineer a device that will keep medicine within a 40-60°F range using natural resources from the biome you live in, and/or debris created by the disaster for three days, until the Red Cross can arrive?
You are a team of relief workers in __________________after a major earthquake/tsunami has occurred. Your team lead as just told you about a young women with diabetes has been injured and needs insulin to be delivered __________ miles away (no open roads). Your team will need to research, design, and build a portable device to keep the insulin between _____ and ______ °(F/C) for _____ days. Once you return you will present the effectiveness of your device to your lead and a team other relief workers showing your both your design/device and explaining the process.
Welcome to the UnboundEd Mathematics Guide series! These guides are designed to explain what new, high standards for mathematics say about what students should learn in each grade, and what they mean for curriculum and instruction. This guide, the first for Grade 8, includes three parts. The first part gives a tour of the standards in the first two clusters of the Geometry domain (dealing with congruence, similarity and the Pythagorean Theorem) using freely available online resources that you can use or adapt for your class. The second part shows how these standards relate to other concepts in Grade 8. And the third part explains where congruence, similarity and the Pythagorean Theorem are situated in the progression of learning from the elementary grades to high school.
This lesson spans multiple days and explores the value of debate teams in schools. During the first week of the unit, students learned to identify claims and warrants in texts. This week, students will build upon that knowledge by writing a basic argument and learning about the types of support that are used to build an argument. This will culminate with an assessment in which the students choose a position to take after reading a text and develop their claims and warrants with appropriate support and analysis.Cover image: "[Booker T.

This lesson seed involves students analyzing President Obam's back to school speech. In reading the transcript of the speech, students will identify claims and the evidence supporting their claims.

An open 8th grade U.S. History textbook covering the American Revolution through Reconstruction. Includes chapters on the underlying beliefs behind our system of government, westward expansion. the Civil War, and more. Each chapter is set up around an inquiry question. We consider these questions to be “Compelling Questions”. That means we want you to be thinking about this question throughout the entire chapter. You’ll notice that most of them are open ended. By investigating each question over the course of a chapter you’ll come to a conclusion that you should be able to support with evidence before moving on to your next inquiry.
