# Odyssey of the Eyes: Beginning Level

In this learning activity, students create a 3D model of part of their local landscape, then make a series of observations from different directions. Using the bird's eye view, they translate the 3D model into a 2D map with a scale and key, and... (View More)

# Just Passing Through (Intermediate Version)

Students will time the flow of water through soils with different properties and measure the amount of water held in these soils. They will also experiment with the filtering ability of soils by testing the pH of the water before and after it passes... (View More)

# Magnetic Field and Life

This is a lesson where learners explore magnetic forces, fields, and the relationship between electricity. Learners will use this information to infer how the Earth generates a protective magnetic field. The lesson models scientific inquiry using... (View More)

# Temperature, Pressure, and the Earth

This is a lesson where learners explore the effects of pressure on temperature and states of matter and use this information to infer the conditions of the interior of the Earth. The lesson models scientific inquiry using the 5E instructional model... (View More)

# Convection in the Earth

This is a lesson where learners explore conditions that might change the density of a substance, resulting in movement. Learners will observe convection and use this information to infer how movement occurs inside the Earth. The lesson models... (View More)

# The Flow of Matter

This is a lesson where learners are introduced to chemical change and the conservation of matter during different types of chemical changes. The lesson models scientific inquiry using the 5E instructional model and includes teacher notes,... (View More)

# Greenhouse Gases

This is a lesson where learners engage in a radiating heat activity and an activity that measures temperature in models with and without greenhouse gases. Learners will draw conclusions about the effect of greenhouse gases on temperature and on... (View More)

# Density

In this lesson learners will explore the properties that allow objects and liquids to float and use this information to infer the composition of the Earth's layers. The lesson models scientific inquiry using the 5E instructional model and includes... (View More)

# Where Do They Come From? Looking at Asteroids

This is a lesson about the connection between meteorites and asteroids, focusing on remote-sensing techniques using light. Learners will make and record observations and measurements; analyze data and draw analogies; compare samples; measure and... (View More)

# How Can I Use Them? Asteroid Resources

Learners will research and document some of the requirements for mounting an expedition to an asteroid; actively explore potential resources available to space travelers through research, assessment, team cooperation, and exploration simulations;... (View More)
